« Surprisingly, the Cato Institute dislikes the EU Constitution | Main | Pro-EU Americans, part 2 »



Reid's book is excellent, but there are lots of minor factual errors that constantly leap out at you and undermine its credibility.

Perhaps his most interesting contribution is the idea of a "Generation E" young middle class Europeans who are beginning to think of themselves primarily as Europeans.

The general arguement is that Americans ought to know more about European convergence because its economic power is beginning to be felt in the United States. He constantly refers back to a story about Jack Welsh clashing (unsuccessfully) with competition Commissioner Mario Monti over GM's attempted merger with Honeywell.

Reid is not entirely lauditory about Europe. He's critical of the risk-aversion he sees in opposition to GMOs and some other "precautionary principle"-based regulation, and sees European anti-Americanism as pretty much universal.

It's certainly worth a read.



Great book. I just want to say what a fantastic thing you are doing! Good luck!

Reid is not entirely lauditory about The western union. He's significant of the risk-aversion he recognizes in weight to GMOs and some other "precautionary principle"-based control, and recognizes European anti-Americanism as very much widespread.
