There is no random coincidence that France, Italy and Spain have had persistent problems with growth and unemployment. The burden is obviously too heavy for their companies to bear. I'm rather surprised with Croatia. Admittedly, I don't know much about the Croatian economy. Maybe it's time to ask questions.
In any case, do read the whole thing at IREF. Well worth the effort.
