  1. Haven't read the Economist article yet, but what I have read suggests that a Belgian breakup wouldn't be a big deal; it was formed for practicle reasons to begin with, not emotional. If the EU has eliminated those reasons and new reasons haven't shown up, then it may be time for a new arrangement.

    Mind you, that arrangement needn't be Belgium's breakup. I could also see the Benelux countries joining into a larger nation to exert greater influence in the EU.

    Unanswered questions in my mind: Would France be willing to take on an economically recessed Wallonia? What differences exist between the Belgian and Dutch Flemish that we don't here about? What factors play into Brussel's fate?
