IS EUROPE DOOMED? Anne Applebaum has thoughts at Cato Unbound. “If the rise of China continues apace, I’m afraid Dr. Dalyrymple’s final phrase—that Europe is ‘sleep-walking to further relative decline’—might even be too mild. At some point, it’s also possible that Europe’s decline, for all the reasons he listed, might even cease to be relative.”

UPDATE: Fareed Zakaria writes on the decline and fall of Europe. I agree with Applebaum that it’s not inevitable. But it’s inevitable if Europeans don’t start doing something about it.
