I like the Paul Graham article. One of his conclusions is:

>Unless you're sure what you want to do and where the leading center for it is, your best bet is >probably to try living in several places when you're young. You can never tell what message a >city sends till you live there, or even whether it still sends one.

which makes me think that we should put a greater premium in social policy on mobility. But the message of the UK to young people is largely "You need to settle down, get that mortgage, take out that private pension before it's too late, get a job quick as next year's graduates are right behind you". You wouldn't know you're part of Europe a lot of the time here, and rarely encouraged to think in terms of the European job market.

Yes. The British economy revolves around the overvaluation of real estate, though, so it's hard to see any official recommending nomadism.
