    Default European Union vs The United States of America

    I think with the introduction of euro it is no longer wise to compare US to any one European country. It seems to me that the European Union is a stronger entity than US. What do people think?

    The EU is definitely an economic force to be reckoned with.

    The EU is the strongest economy in the world, and is the best place to live in the world.

    A proud citizen.

    Everyone in the EU needs to reject American interference, America's goal is to damage and weaken the Eu, because it see's it as a threat.

    London the financial capitol of the world, makes me proud.

    The EU is a very strong economic force and in my opinion will continue to be for some time. Some of the countries though have a pretty high unemployment rate which could affect that in the long run.

    Caspiantiger- why is it that you hate the US so much? I know you haven't come out and said that exactly but your speach patterns say as much.

    2nd question for you....i don't live in the UK so I thought I would ask you this question...what do people there think about the unemployment issue...the UK isn't as bad but some countries in Europe are very high. Just thought I would get the opinion of a person that lives in that part of the world.

    Correct me if I am wrong but doesnt the US have some places with high unemployment rate as well? What is the unemployment rate in Ohio for example?

    Big, he wasn't asking about the unemployment rate in Ohio or anywhere else in the U.S.

    I also didn't look at the unemployment rate for each region within a specific country. I looked at the countries "average" as a whole. Of course some regions/states are higher and some are lower.

    Chance i believe America is a very irresponsible super power, the wars and economic bullying is a terrible, horrible thing and i can't wait for the day America is economically castrated so it can't do this anymore.
    They say 1 million Iraqi children died thanks to America's economic embargo before the Iraq war, that is essentially genocide.

    I think Europe will be a much greater super power.

    Many people in the UK dislike Europe, they believe we should be independant of the EU and that we are British. what they don't realise is the economic benefits we get from the EU.
    I think it is American owned tabloids which give them these biased and stupid opinions, hence my comments about American interference.

    The government however knows the value of the EU. The EU is only good for the UK essentially we take all the good things and sit out of the things that hurt the UK. Although i believe the UK should demand an equal vote to France and Germany, afterall we created the EU.

    I think in the future we should live as a European federal state much like America is now, although with some obvious difference's. This is the future i belive.
