EUROPE AND CHINA, di Stefan Collignon
Steven Hill recently asked in a column for Social Europe Journal ‘Why is Europe Losing the Public Relations Battle to China?’ He claims that today there is a G-2 media hype which casts America as the existing superpower and China as the up-and-coming superpower. He asks ‘Where is Europe in all this’ when Europe is a leader in many technologies and has more Fortune 500 companies than the US and China combined? It is reducing carbon emissions and social inequality, it enacts healthcare, retirement, quality of life and shares its prosperity fairly broadly. Yet it is viewed as a place most people try to flee, if they can. Why is Europe getting so little respect and recognition, he asked?
