The 'Economist' Agrees About The Europification Of The United States

We wrote yesterday about how America and the European Union are experiencing similar broken systems because in both, you have politicians from various regions imposing not-ideal policies on others.

It seems The Economist agrees that the US system is looking pretty broke.
