Go South! Go East!
augustus 14, 2011
Een kort en helder opiniestuk van Roger Cohen in de New York Times over de crisis in West-Europa:
“This European malaise is no stranger to a United States of high unemployment, economic bafflement, ideological radicalization and political pettiness.”
“Growth, jobs, expansion, excitement — and, yes, possibility — lie in the great non-Western arc from China through India to South Africa and Brazil. Go South! Go East! That’s the dictum of the age but not always practicable in Peckham or Peoria. The world has been turned upside-down. What we are witnessing is how shaken Western societies are by such inversion. “
