On the political side we can analyze how the European Union developed after WWII. There are a lot of good lessons learned. It is one of the greatest peace projects ever.
It probably won’t last much longer.
That’s what some people at Wall Street would like to see, so they can make a quick buck by betting on chaos and doom. US media love European doom too. Bad news is good news. Well, they underestimate the resolve of the European people. And when we look at the political stalemate in the US for the past 4 years, this makes the European commission look like a progress bar in hyperdrive
I agree that politics in Europe are more progressive and/or sophisticated then American politics; America is doomed.
The economic situation, and the social situation in the EU doesn’t look good from this angle, however. As it gets worse, the possibility of conflict will increase.
