President of the European Central Bank Mario Draghi, left, and and Charles Wyplosz, director of the International Center of Money and Banking at the Graduate Institute in Geneva, arrive for a commemoration of late economist Tommaso Padoa Schioppa, in Rome, Friday, Dec. 16, 2011. The Italian government faces a confidence vote over a package of austerity measures while a transport strike to protest the cuts is causing havoc for commuters across the country. Premier Mario Monti is putting his package of new and higher taxes and pension reforms to a confidence vote in the lower Chamber of Deputies to speed up its passage. The vote, which is expected by early evening Friday, will likely clear the measures, paving the way for final approval in the Senate within days. (AP Photo/Andrew Medichini) less
