(Global Edition) From the BBC World Service … Italy’s new prime minister faces a second vote of confidence in the lower house today. In his first policy speech, he confirmed several goals, including adopting a tough stance on migrants and a rejection of austerity measures. But is it what investors were hoping to hear after last week’s market turmoil?
