I'm going to introduce a new occasional feature (probably weekly) on this Blog called The Conventional Wisdom Index. Newsweek magazine did this during the presidential primaries in 1987 (or was it 1991?) where they would indicate if, in their view, a particular candidate had had a good week or a bad week. I'm going to be as objective as I can about it and avoid partisan politics and endeavour to reflect just what the conventional wisdom is. I intend to track the fortunes of the following each week (usually at the weekend).
George W Bush
The Reputation of Politics
The European Union
I you think I should track any other individuals, institutions or concepts, feeel free to suggest some.
