It has long been noted that countries and cultures differ in their shared beliefs about locus of control and related measures such as scales of individualism versus collectivism or egocentric versus sociocentric conceptions of self.
Although it is not entirely clear what an insignificant paradigm-shift would look like, his point seems to be that, given the consensus on the free-market ‘from Beijing to Brussels’, the compass of politics must now move from the economic to the social, or rather, ‘become sociocentric’ rather than ‘econocentric’.
Both wonks of course, so both could be highly dangerous moves, especially when you consider Letwin's last outing went a bit overboard on the academic rhetoric with his "shift from an econocentric paradigm to a sociocentric paradigm."
I assume one of the bins is for econocentric paradigms and the other for sociocentric paradigms?
