Interesting conservative critique of both the US and EU especially British political and social developments over the past 40 to 50 years or so. The problems plural are that the author cherry-picks data to suit his arguments, masks opinions as facts, and ignores data that contradicts his assertions.
In some cases, there are flat-out errors of facts. For example page 23 he asserts that the US Affordable Care Act "Obamacare" has a Federally administered "government option" alongside private health insurance. In fact, the government option was never enacted.source url
Encounter Broadsides: Why America Must Not Follow Europe by Daniel Hannan (2011, Paperback)
His data on unemployment rates only extend to -- the year of the worst recession in the US since Also, he agglomerates unemployment rates for the entire EU and compares it to the US. His critiques of the health care systems in Europe ignores issues such as the lower rates of infant mortality and higher median life spans in Europe compared to the US.
There are undoubtedly many criticisms that can be made of the current European and American political, economic, and health care systems -- but this book doesn't do a very good job of it. The issues the author discusses are good, but his arguments are in many cases just plain poor. Excellent, but way too short. The good news is this was a very fast read. The bad news is that this was a very fast read.
As such, he has some very interesting perspectives and opinions on what is happening there as well as what he observes happening here in the US. He sees America following down the same path that much of Europe has already gone down with the resulting financial problems created along with more and more social programs. He wrote this book as a warning to the US to not go down that same path. I also learned a few little known but interesting facts about America.

For example, I had always been told that Paul Revere road through towns shouting "The British are coming! What he actually said was "the regulars are out! The only negative thing for me was that the book was way too short. He spells out with great skill why the Euro system is not working and why the U.
He also explains why many Europeans are deluded into thinking that they enjoy a moral superiority. A quote from the book, " Everyone knows governments are inept when it comes to managing social programs. Another point the author makes is that "patriotism is seen as outdated and discreditable.
The EU is built on the proposition that national identities are arbitrary, transient, and ultimately dangerous. This booklet is highly recommended. Daniel Hannan seems to be more American than most Americans. He certainly has more care and concern for this great nation than most. This brilliantly written book is part history lesson and part crystal ball.
As he eloquently explain, he is "inhabiting" our future if we continue to except Liberal policies and politician who spew socialistic rants, which are becoming all too common. With the upcoming election approaching, this book will make you think about our choice of candidates.
