    Eurozone: A Recipe for Recovery

    The euro is a young currency that has all chances to make Europe a global player if the problems associated with its “premature birth” are solved in a decisive manner. The fiscal authorities should resort to extraordinary measures in order to accelerate economic growth, reduce unemployment, and boost the continent’s competitiveness.

    Colonies vs. Dependencies: An Invitation to a Discourse

    It would be more logical to recognize only settler colonies as colonies per se and refer to all other results of expansion as dependencies. The loss of colonies is incomparably more dangerous for empires than the loss of dependencies. Trying to hold on to dependencies is meaningless, but to neglect the colonies is reckless.

    Continent Siberia

    (5)

    Siberia should re-evaluate its place and role, and start developing itself as an element of the global economy, similar to what the eastern U.S. states did several decades ago and China’s coastal provinces did recently.

    The Remaking of the Industrial World

    Illusory hopes that new technological possibilities will help create unlimited wealth have never come true. No invention can ensure a life of ease for decades. Of course, the world has changed – but, as the developments of recent years have shown, not to an extent that the established economic patterns should be discarded as worthless. The 21st-century world is a renewed yet still industrial world.

    Nineteen Eighty-Five

    (1)

    The Soviet Union, contrary to many expectations, survived the year 1984 – one of the last years of the industrial age. But it proved helpless in the new conditions, when the development of post-industrial countries demanded greater flexibility and innovation from the rest of the world. As for Russia, over the years since the end of the Soviet era, it has grown, it looks, richer somewhat, but its basic features have remained Soviet all along.

    The Post-Crisis World: Searching for a New Framework

    This century will be neither “American” nor “North Atlantic” – but neither the Americans nor the Europeans or the Russians are interested in seeing the 21st century becoming “Asian” and especially “Chinese.” Today as never before all of them need unity.

    A Not-So-Great Depression

    A majority of economic institutions in the world today are in a sort of stupor after the powerful blow the crisis delivered in the third and fourth quarters of 2008. But this does not imply that the post-crisis rebound will not be as surprising as the crisis.

    Russia Today: Up the Down Staircase

    The year 2008 will be problematic because the bureaucratic class is divided. One part of the bureaucracy, which has gained control over substantial assets, is ready in principle to formally change the image of bureaucrats for the status of businessmen.

    Europe as the "Center", and Its "Outskirts"

    Europe is gradually turning into a kind of a community of personalities, whereas the United States and Russia are consolidating a society of citizens (or even subjects).

    Michael Walzer: "Any Ruler Can Be Brought to the Law"

    The trial of Hussein who claimed to
    be a ruler, who could do essentially anything and whose rule was arbitrary, was to bring him to the law, before the court, but to respect all of the civilized procedural rules.

    Two Faces of Globalization: Europeanization Vs Americanization

    We all are entering a new era in which the Europeans may peacefully live in their united Europe, and the Americans may build their beloved America according to their own projects. But this will be possible only if America and Europe let the rest of the world follow the path of genuine globalization, that is, let each nation and people follow its own course.

    Fernando Henrique Cardoso: "We Need More Democracy to Tame Markets"

    You can compare globalization with the beginning of industrialization in Europe in the early 19th century when the workers were prepared to break the machinery because they were against it. To be against globalization is a similar situation, to some extent. If Karl Marx were still alive he would say: "You people are crazy. This is the means to progress."

    The Convenient Enemy

    The "war on terror" will soon outpace World War II in terms of its scale and duration. Because the ruling elites of all the countries involved, without exception – the United States, Russia, Great Britain, Poland and many others – are vitally interested in it.

    Rethinking the New World Order

    We can say with certainty that what we are witnessing today is a world disorder, to which almost all members of the international community are now contributing, together with numerous illegal networks and organizations. The world is slipping into chaos. The crisis within the system of international relations now seems obvious, and the only way of resolving it is to create an altogether new world order.

    Out of Touch with Reality

    Two new Russian books on globalization, one written under the auspices of the Gorbachev Foundation and the other by Russian Communist leader Gennady Zyuganov, evoke rather questionable thoughts concerning the ability of the Russian intellectual elite to propose viable models for Russia’s development in the modern world.

    Anti-Americanism: Is It Europe’s Obsession?

Shadows Over the Putin-Trump Summit

The U.S. president probably expected to declare that he had a “very good” meeting with the formidable Vladimir Putin and had achieved what none of his White House predecessors had. Instead, Donald Trump’s performance, particularly at the press conference, inflicted on him accusations of na?vet? and even treason, and his retractions hardly repaired the damage. This is disquieting news for Putin: instead of a much needed defrosting of U.S.-Russian relations, America's anti-Russia policy may get harder still.


Israel and Gaza: Determination vs. Desperation

The Israel–Hamas conflict threatens to escalate into a new war that could surpass anything seen during the previous operations in the Gaza Strip in terms of the amount of bloodshed.

Two Significant Developments in US-Russian Relations

What has emerged over the past year is a two-track US policy: resumption of contacts between the two presidents with a promise of more summits and reopening of discussion channels on a number of issues at the same time as there has been an escalation of sanctions.

Germany’s Dangerous Nuclear Flirtation

Opening a debate on German nuclear armament, as some are advocating, would be the geopolitical equivalent of walking into checkmate.

The New Global Governance: Towards a More Sustainable Framework

Faced with threats ranging from climate change to hugely disruptive technological advances, the world is clearly at a crossroads. More than ever a stable, inclusive and global governance is needed.

Infrastructure Connectivity and Political Stability in Eurasia

The country’s geographic location largely predetermines its foreign policy, as well as the trajectory of its socioeconomic development. However, even the most negative geographical limitations can be overcome via connectivity and compatibility that are the passport to the success of Eurasian integration.
