Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
"But, it doesn't really take much time for one to keep one's self informed"

Aye, there's the rub. Most of the sources of information that you find here would strengthen your belief. Which would make you reject even more sources like, well, this one, which scream otherwise.

It takes more effort to keep yourself well informed than just informed. For example, it's a freak coincidence that got me here. Even reading Krugman came from a coincidence (although I would probably have done it a couple of years later, when his name started circulating more).
I take the Eurostar most weeks and have access to the lounge with the newspapers and magazines. You really have to know what you're looking for in order to pick something that you will call "information", though most of them would call themselves so.

Earth provides enough to satisfy every man's need, but not every man's greed. Gandhi
