Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
This explains a couple of other things, by the way:

  • Most ETers aren't members of any very well established tribe in the same way: rootless cosmopolitans (as Migeru calls us) doesn't really do the job! This explains our inability to easily understand these people.

  • They believe everyone else thinks the way they do. The Indians can't be trying to get rich because they'd like to be: they want to dominate the world. The Chinese likewise. I personally believe that both the Indias and Chinese will have enough to do for the next hundreds years or so just managing the transitions in their own countries.
