I believe that when the WHOLE of Europe is joined together.. that means.. Russia, Turkey, Ukraine etc are all in the EU.. Europe will be one of the most powerful, richest nations on earth. Let's look at this.. UK, Germany, France, Spain, Italy, Holland, Belgium, Ireland, Iceland, Portugal, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Austria, Poland, Greece, Russia, Turkey, Ukraine, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Belarus, Croatia, Serbia Montenegro.. (sorry if I have missed your country out) all working together to create a prosperous, wealthy, powerful EU.
I admit rapid growth in China and other countries in Asia has happened and will continue to grow.. but then after a certain amount of time manufacturing costs will rise in these developing countries causing manufacturing to move back to other parts of the world including Europe and the US.
Don't forget that there is a huge banking and more service industry in the EU now than ever before.. Maybe one day the whole of the world will be joined together (I wish).. that is when the world be at it's best!
On the population side of things Asia would have more mouths to feed.. unlike the EU.. would this create cause for concern.. after all someone would have to farm food..
I'm probably absolutely wrong about what I said but it's what I feel.. GO EUROPE!
