Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
As an American, I don't know why an American should be defensive about this (though invariably some people act as though any critique of the American model is next to evil...). What is interesting is that we have had a number of conversations around here in the last year about alternatives to GDP as a measure of success, and...irony of ironies...it is a bank that presents us an interesting alternative modeal. I like it. How can we get this...or something close to this...to become the coiin of the realm?? Well, I guess by talking about it, to start with...great catch!!
