Article: Democracy - an inventory (from Spanish)

"Democracy - an inventory" is the English translation of an opinion piece by José Ignacio Torreblanca (National University of Distance Education, Madrid), originally published in Spanish in "El País" under the title "El embudo democrático", on 7 October 2011. Translated courtesy to the Paris-based site Presseurop .eu, which compiles articles from hundreds of European newspapers every day.

Excerpt: "Greece and the United States ... are cradles of democracy: the first of direct democracy, the second of representative democracy. The ideal of democracy ... is what is being challenged today. ... From Athens to Wall Street, the ideal of democracy is struggling to survive."
