77. Europe vs. U.S.
My husband travels regularly to Europe, particularly France, Spain, Italy, and Switzerland. When he is home, he is in and out of NY about every other day or evening. He says the restaurants in Europe are empty and the restauranteurs are crying the blues. He says they have other foreign customers but nobody spends like an American.

They have truly killed the goose that laid the golden egg: the U.S. middle class.

The restaurants in NY are full, though--with citizens from the UK, Netherlands, etc.

I also saw a report about how many of the reporters covering the U.S. election are from foreign countries. Why? Because after two terms of bush, these countries know how important the affairs of America are in their own economy.
