He has such a good point on the inflexibility of the educational systems of the welfare states of Europe. Also my impression of the US and to some extent the UK is that you guys have a far deeper appreciation for the ambititious and intelligent than Europeans in general. You realise the importance of fostering the innovators and thinkers, while our focus always is to prop up the weak links no matter the cost. In educational terms this translates to a goal of having all students at basically the same level if possible; no one far ahead and no one behind. In an economic sense this way of thinking is a pure disaster and will continue to hurt our growth prospects.
