Borders


A little diversion from the usual trade and finance posts.  This is about a neat op/ed in the NY Times today about borders–both real and imaginary–and how they reflect history, politics and economics.  Eastern Europe is a part of the world that I’ve spent many years studying and working so it is a topic I enjoy following  as time allows.  Most of my work has been in Southeastern Europe, primarily Hungary and the former Yugoslavia, where history is very much alive and still shapes the region’s economics and politics.  Enjoy the column!
