Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It is because we treat it like it is. If the Americans had treated it as the annoying law enforcement problem it is (like the Europeans have for years), we would not be in the clash of civilisations mindset we are now (and they would not be stuck in Iraq right now, spilling blood, wasting money and destroying the whole concept of the rule of law).

Growth matters, but that will soon be superceded by issues linked to sustainability, resource scarcity and global climate change, and it will need to be defined in new ways - in particular in non-monetary ways.

Call that bias if you will.

In the long run, we're all dead. John Maynard Keynes
