Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Was the Lisbon agenda not more about improving the competitiveness of the EU relative to the rest of the world?  Should the scorecard not therefor compare the EU with other external competitors - US/China?India/Russia etc.?  I appreciate this does not attempt to be a full measure of development - unlike the Human Development Index - but how measurable where the s called Lisbon agenda items in any case?
