You're being ridiculous. There is no credible way to say that Eastern Europe has not had solid economic growth across the board since the mid-1990s. I'd say you're manipulating data as well, but I...

Nah, it's used as an indicator all the time. Unless you have a better metric I'm going to dismiss your claim based on years of studying economic and human development using GDP per capita as a metric...

Shock Therapy worked in some places and failed completely in others, that goes without saying. For instance, it worked incredibly well in West Germany following WW2, when the entire state and...

I love Modest Mouse and have considered them my favorite band for a while, but Built to Spill may have a better discography overall at this point

Err, the US was certainly not pushing for "free market anarchism" in the post-Communist era, so I don't really know how to respond to that. Not to mention that anything that has to do with free...

What??? What is your definition of both? Given that neoliberalism is one of the most vague terms out there (no one actually identifies as neoliberal, and I've literally never seen the term used in a...

It talks a ton about the liberal reforms that the US was pushing for, which includes the opening of markets and such. I don't really know what you're getting at. The article isn't about Russian...

Is this going to be another "sub everyone out at 60 and give up 3 late goals" kind of game?

Honestly based on this year's performances the only one out of those that will really hurt is Gundogan. I love Hummels but he has looked off lately, Miki is a complete waste of money, and Immobile...

I just hope that not too many players follow him, I was already worried about who we're going to lose this offseason and this might make even more players take off.

Even though I figured Klopp wouldn't be around next season, it's still hard to believe Dortmund won't have him on the sideline next year now that he actually is leaving. Weird.

At least Bayern got...

I think people have been waiting for that righteous anger about the environment to boil over since like, 1965. Probably the most influential thing the Greens have done in the US was help get Dubya...
