Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Thanks for this extensive compendium of journalism critical of the current status quo. None can say that there as been NO notice of the middle finger represented by Brexit. In fact I called it just that here back in late June, I believe, and noted that many of this game's losers would prefer to take down parts of the City than to continue a status quo from which they ostensibly benefit to some degree.

This reminds me of studies of primate behavior regarding acceptable choices. If a chimpanzee sees an offer as too unfair it will refuse the offer even if there is a small reward. Perhaps our primate instincts will save us?

We will know if elite awareness of this 'problem' has reached critical mass when Thomas Friedman writes a column suitable for inclusion in your list. I am not holding my breath.
