Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi may have just managed to hold on to power today after winning a key parliamentary vote. There were more jobs advertised in September than at any other time in the last 3 years — sign the job market could be getting better. Japanese car maker Toyota said profit fell by more than 18 percent in its last quarter. General Motors today rejected a plan for two Chinese companies to take over Swedish automaker Saab. GM is still a preferred shareholder in Saab. In Japan, the 92-year-old camera company Olympus admitted it has been covering up losses for decades.
