Europe Needs to Get Its Act Together

Alain Touraine, El Pais (In Spanish) | May 31, 2010

The financial crisis demonstrated that European leadership is virtually nonexistant; only the actions of individual states like Germany, France, and the UK prevented a complete catastrophe. ++ It is "absolutely essential to foresake the neoliberalism that brought on the present crisis." ++ Europe's weakness will keep it from becoming one of the leading forces in the new world order. ++ Europe urgently needs to integrate Turkey, which, feeling unwanted in Europe, is turning more strongly toward the Islamic world.
