Yes, perhaps, but the problem is NEW to Germany !

Everything new evokes great discussions and emotions.

In the U.S. , people might already be used to it, kind of (sounds bad, but this is my personal impression due to sheer lack of knowledge).

I have read an interview with Jeffrey Sachs the other day (I think it was yesterday). I begin to like this guy. He has published a new book, too. Edit : I can't find it, which means that it is not published yet. I think the title was "Uncivilized Land" or "Uncivilized Country", and he means the U.S. with it. Edit : Could this one, too, judging from its tone : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Pri…lization_(book)

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)
