    Niall Ferguson has identified the six things that have led to European civilisation dominating the modern world.

    Competition.
    Science.
    Property.
    Modern Medicine.
    Consumerism.
    Work Ethic.

    How close was he?

    The more I read from Ferguson, the less impressed I get. I agree with Katz – that list really needs something like, “the desire to dominate the rest of the world” on it.
