Uruguay: A Bastion Of Stability In A Chaotic Region

Uruguay: A Bastion Of Stability In A Chaotic Region

The country of Uruguay has maintained a growing economy despite the economic chaos that had roiled South America over the past decade. Unlike a number of neighboring countries, Uruguay was able to avoid recession in the global financial crisis. This was due to increased investment in infrastructure and higher overall public expenditures. Growth which had slowed to 2.9% in 2009, resumed to a rate that exceeded 7% by 2010. Much of the economic success of Uruguay, is due to a strong export […]

Ukraine: A Generation Of Failure And Missteps

Independence for the Ukraine arrived in early December of 1991, after a referendum. It was practically inevitable, following the failed coup attempt against President Mikhail Gorbachev in August. The effort to replace him, actually accelerated the dissolution of the Soviet Union. The Ukrainian parliament had already passed a resolution in support of the upcoming vote, in making the former Soviet republic, a separate state on August 24th. That is why this date is recognized as Independence Day in Ukraine. The referendum itself […]

Brazil: A New Economic And Political Beginning

Brazil: A New Economic And Political Beginning

The Brazilian Senate finally did what had become inevitable, that is the impeachment of President Dilma Rousseff on August 31st by a vote of 61 to 20. Her crime was the illegal manipulation of government accounts, but the real transgression was presiding over the worst recession in decades. Her approval ratings went from 79% in March of 2013, to around 10% in March of 2016. In violation of the law, the former president moved funds between various government budgets. Her objective was […]

Rise Of Nationalist Populist Political Parties Will Bring An End To European Union

The recent conservative party defeat in a state election, indicates that even in stable and prosperous Germany, there is rising discontent among voters towards the status quo.

For the first time in postwar history, the conservative Christian Democrats received fewer votes in a state election than a populist movement on the right. Their […]

Uzbekistan Facing An Uncertain Future

Uzbekistan Facing An Uncertain Future

After nearly a week of doubt, it became clear that long time leader Islam Karimov of Uzbekistan had finally died. Since independence in 1991 from the former Soviet Union, he ruled the predominately secular country with an iron hand. Karimov had maintained sway over this Central Asian nation, since his appointment to power by the communist leadership in 1989. President Karimov has dominated the political arena in Uzbekistan for 27 years. Despite a two term constitutional limit, he was returned to office […]

Croatia In Economic And Political Stalemate

Croatia In Economic And Political Stalemate

Croatia a country of 4.8 million inhabitants, has been in a political stalemate since June and it is a reflection of the present division among the electorate. The main parties consist of the Social Democrats (SDP) and the Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ). The leadership continues to focus on connections and rivalries of the past, which does little to solve issues that face the country in the present. The previous election was last November, but the HDZ dominated coalition government collapsed two months […]
