In TCS: Europe?s Way Forward. Today, Tech Central Station, one of Europe?s leading web magazines, publishes an article by me. I argue that the European Social Model is the source of most serious problems in Western Europe and that we have to move away from it as soon as possible:

"Everyone talks about the need for economic growth. It is a top priority for the Barroso Commission. But does any leading politician realize what changes need to be made?
The famous aim of the Lisbon process was to close the wealth gap with the US by 2010. Since 2000, when it was conceived, the gap has widened. In fact, the average person in 38 American states is richer than the average person in any country in Europe, except in Luxemburg.
Yet the much-ballyhooed report written by former Dutch Prime Minister Wim Kok, "Facing the Challenge", states that we are not only going to keep it, but that keeping it is the main aim of the reforms. "To achieve the goals of higher growth and increased employment in order to sustain Europe?s social model, will require powerful, committed and convincing political leadership."
Government is the main obstacle standing in the way for more jobs, more companies, higher growth and thus better living standards. The direction of the reforms for a brighter future must be the reduction of big government. And thereby the release of the creative forces of humanity."
