Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
that data circulates, and the UK press, when it is focused on domestic matters, will highlight such things.

The problem is that that kind of information does not make it into the more general discourse about macroeconomic policy and discussions of international comparisons and globalisation.

It's just like peak oil is being discussed here and there, but not at all taken into account when things like 'the future of the car industry' or 'the future of airports' are being discussed.

How do we bring what are seen as isolated, self-standing problems into the big picture.

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

People are not generally able to relate what they know in two different areas. Being able to make connections between disparate information is what leads to knowledge and "insight".
