A pattern of parity and particularity


In recent years, several highly visible European policies have been more precautionary than their U.S. counterparts. In some cases, the United States has demurred. Morever, Europe has formally adopted the precautionary principle in its treaties and national laws, while the U.S. has not. A close look at the current scenario reveals that greater European precaution is not the whole story. Other cases point in the opposite direction, of greater relative U.S. precaution. In fact, a recent study reveals that it is not the precautionary principle, it is precautionary particularity.
