This is a well-written piece, however in order to strengthen the claim that these 10 countries benefited from the entry to EU in terms of economic expansion, it will be a good idea to compare these countries with those that did not enter the EU or those that were/are in the accession process such as Turkey, Croatia or Romania and Bulgaria who joined later. Of course these countries have their own dynamics apart from being a member/non-member, but the growth rate of Western Europe is not a really good benchmark on its own, too.
