Nice interview of later Prof. Stanley Hoffmann, a longtime , professor of international relations at Harvard University.
Michal Matlak: Europe is not in good shape.
Stanley Hoffmann: Any American newspaper will tell you this. Those poor Europeans, they don’t know what they are doing! I am originally from France, and I recently went back to see some friends. It looked perfectly normal to me. They are not exactly doing brilliantly, but the notion that the whole thing will collapse, that there will be no EU, is plainly absurd. There are ups and downs—this is a period of down, but it is not the end of the story.
This is big irony really. India is one of the highest (ok “the highest”) growing country in the world. But it feels like a recession here.
Good stuff on Europe, history, politics and so on..
