The Great Debate UK
from Anatole Kaletsky:
Is gridlocked government a betrayal of democracy? Or does it allow citizens to get on with their lives and businesses, unencumbered by meddlesome politicians?
from Nicholas Wapshott:
The elaborate gavotte between the American and European economies continues.
