An op-ed by Prof. Nouriel Roubini on the global economic outlook
— September 13, 2012
Excerpt from Project Syndicate -- "Ineffective governments with weak leadership are at the root of the problem. In democracies, repeated elections lead to short-term policy choices. In autocracies like China and Russia, leaders resist the radical reforms that would reduce the power of entrenched lobbies and interests, thereby fueling social unrest as resentment against corruption and rent-seeking boils over into protest."
