it was amazing

Fantastic, eye-opening insight into the "European model" and how it offers what many of us are looking for from our society in the United States. In spite of crisis and uncertainty, Europe is doing amazing things in forging a vibrant post-industrial society for its citizenry. The author doesn't shy away from Europe's problems either, including their fiscal issues and shifts in labor policy. But overall, he leaves Americans (and others whose nations are in the thrall of the insanity of "free-market fundamentalism") a lot to think about. A must-read!
