How Sick Is the EU?

A study released today claims that Europe´s economic performance is at least 20 years behind that of the US.

It sounds like the study and its timing is primarily designed to provoke controversy and publicity for its creators, an organisation called Eurochambres. Even so, it will be interesting to see the EU Commission´s reaction, and how quickly it gets round to rubbishing the report's data and conclusions. A good case for Margot Wallstrom (see Margot´s Nice Blog) and her communications team to get to grips with. It would be depressing if they just ignored it, wouldn't it?
