A World without Europe

Expressing concern for the future of a world with a weakened Europe and in which Germany has given up on the Euro, the following signals that Europe is the last defendeer of a social system based on a strong preference for greater equality, as opposed to the US, China, Russia that increasingly tolerate great and rising inequality.  Certainly something to contemplate.

Mientras en Estados Unidos se tolera la más injusta redistribución de la riqueza en un siglo y en Rusia y China se celebra a los nuevos ricos que acumulan fortunas inimaginables, Europa sigue teniendo una enorme alergia a la desigualdad. ¿Qué prefiere usted, un mundo en el que el 1% de la población acumula el 95% de la riqueza, y el resto se lo pelea una masa pobre y excluida, o un mundo dominado por una vasta, creciente y políticamente poderosa clase media? Europa representa el segundo escenario.
