EU Economic Growth
In a continent usually associated with stagnant economic policies. The European Union has been able grow, but with varying degrees of success. Who was the biggest winner? Slovakia, with a second quarter growth rate of 2.4%. Some countries, while they are not specified in the article from Financial Times, only had growth rates of 0.2%. There are some concerns of the sustainability of growth with the U.S. subprime market and of a strong Euro hurting exports. Its all good, but I still won’t be sold on the EU until Germany doesn’t invade France for 100 years.
