Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Because the overwhelming majority of people, including journalists, pundits, politicians and government bureaucrats I dare say, don't have the time, attention span, will power, and/or intelligence to deal with much more than a single number.

And then they build up or tear down policies that affect us all, based on and spinning the one measure that everyone cares about (even if they don't understand it) because that's what the rest of the herd is following.

Truth unfolds in time through a communal process.
