Is America Becoming Europe?

Becoming Europe: Economic Decline, Culture, and How America Can Avoid a European Future

Across the Atlantic, Americans see European economies faltering under enormous debt, overburdened welfare states, governments controlling close to fifty percent of the economy, high taxation, heavily regulated labor markets, aging populations, and large numbers of public sector workers. They also see a European political class that is unable — and, in many cases, unwilling — to implement economic reform.

This timely and sobering video explains why Americans cannot ignore the “canary in the coalmine” across the pond in determining our future. We must ask the question: “Is America becoming Europe?”

To learn more read Dr. Samuel Gregg’s Becoming Europe: Economic Decline, Culture, and How America Can Avoid a European Future:

“This is a book that every economist, historian, and politician should read.”
— Amity Shlaes, syndicated Bloomberg News columnist

“Europe is a terrifying example of what happens when the state gets too large and the money runs out. Don’t imagine that it couldn’t happen to you.”
— Daniel Hannan, British Conservative Member of the European Parliament

    Indeed, it’s only a matter of time — perhaps three or four years from now — before American reaches the level of Europe’s current demise.
