The Year of President Medvedev. The Jerk is Not Leaving

The paper publishes an article by Evgeny Gontmakher in which he analyses the first year of Dmitry Medvedev’s presidency. A year ago, the INSOR board member wrote, “A change of historic proportions is happening now. The post-1990s years of survival are coming to an end. There is jerk into a new, unusual future.” Stressing the relevance of this conclusion, Gontmakher assures readers that this has become the only way out of the crisis. “We should immediately save the economy and the social sector!” expert says. In this sense, not only has Medvedev’s agenda not become out of date, but it has also become more important. “There is little left – starting and finishing,” Gontmakher concludes.
