This approach is helpful in evaluating the European constitution, both in retrospect and prospect, from our vantage point in 2003. For more than two decades, we have observed the activities of the conﬂicting interests in the establishment and operation of the European community. It seems evident that the ultimate constitution for Europe has not been and will not be ‘‘constructed’’ from design, nor even from some explicit multidimensional compromise among competing Competitive Federalism by Default 27 designs.

We could scarcely think of the users-consumers of educational services in Denmark being able to shift their ‘‘purchases’’ to suppliers from Norway, even should they feel exploited. The competition must be less direct than that modeled in idealized market structures. If a member state should, for example, impose efﬁciency-reducing regulations on a market or provide collective services in a resource-wasting manner, the results will show up, ﬁrst of all, in the comparisons reported in the league tables—comparisons that have become much more sophisticated and more widely disseminated with modern technological improvements.
