Eurointelligence has quickly become an essential daily read. I particularly appreciate their morning round-up of the key European papers. It fills a gaping gap for those interested in global economic issues.
Wolfgang Munchau’s commentaries are also wonderfully sharp. Here’s his summary of the choice facing French voters in the presidential election:
All this leaves us with two candidates, one of whom has no economic plan, and the other one has a poor one. I am not going to endorse one over the other, neither today nor in the future. In fact, I would hate to be confronted with such a choice as a voter. Luckily for me, I don’t get to vote in France. But looking at it from the outside, this is probably worse than Prodi-versus-Berlusconi.
