Renewing Old Europe
Here's a link to the piece I did last week for antiwar.com on prospects for renewing and/or reviving Old Eruope in the wake of Sarkozy's election in France. I like Sarkozy's spirit, but I suspect he won't be able to get much done, and he is still a trade protectionist. Nonetheless, changes are afoot in France as well as Britain and Germany, and the welfare states could become just a wee bit less constricting, the economies a little less stodgy.
