Not just in the USA

By Ken Feltman

Europeans were confident and assertive from the mid-1990s until the economic crunch brought things to a halt in 2008. Now Europeans are uncertain, cautious and want the United States to exert leadership in resolving the economic and political problems that confront developed nations.

That is a finding of Radnor’s Conflict Index research in Europe.

As one Polish economist put it, “The same people who said ‘Yankee go home’ are now saying, “Yankee do something.'” The problem: The U.S. is less able to do anything today than it has been in generations.
