The European Dream

August 16, 2004

Jeremy Rifkin‘s latest book, The European Dream: How Europe’s Vision of the Future is Quietly Eclipsing the American Dream, takes a strong stand where he states that American dream is worth dying but European worth living. He questions USA’s superpower status in the economy and compares the Old Continent with US and surprisingly the east side of the Atlantic looks more appealing. Naturally it’s all about metrics but I must say he has a point. Rifkin’s other books include The End of Work among others.
