Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi has raised the possibility of a new government funded scrapping incentive or tax breaks to support the falling Italian car market and help Fiat. Scrapping incentives act as a de facto government funded price cut and are usually based on redeemable vouchers upon the trading in of cars over a certain age. In the past they have successfully boosted depressed markets in a number of European countries including France, Italy and Denmark.
