Fullbrook’s book reminds us that there’s a rational order in the world – that countries can learn from one another’s experience in tackling social problems and challenges, and that by striving to match what already works elsewhere, they can make their own countries better.

    The Greece-Germany contrast here is also interesting given the emphasis being placed on Greek ‘early retirement’ as a justification for imposing austerity. Greek workers may indeed retire earlier than German but on these figures they are working over 40% longer each year, so a longer working life if measured in hours.
