    The Roots of Resistance

    Yuliya Tymoshenko

    An underground war is erupting in Ukraine's occupied cities, towns, and villages, as artillery duels between Ukrainian forces and Russia’s much larger army transform the Donbas into a wasteland. 

    As the war in Ukraine drags on, the savage resistance struggles against the Nazi-occupation of Europe in World War II now seem a prophecy of the partisan war under way across Ukraine.

    draws a direct line from Europe's anti-Nazi underground armies of World War II to Ukraine's partisan war today.

    Anne O. Krueger

    America's world-leading semiconductor industry is a testament to the advantages a competitive market economy has over a command economy like China. But now that the United States has gotten into the business of favoring some producers over others, it is setting the industry up for chronic under-performance.

    Brexit Britain Confronts Reality

    Chris Patten

    Britons must look at themselves calmly and honestly, recognizing the tough times that lie ahead and the changes needed to get the country back on track. Unfortunately, the country's political leaders remain unwilling to treat voters like grown-ups.

    The Post-Global Economy

    Many argue that the combined effects of the 2008 global financial crisis, the COVID-19 pandemic, Sino-American decoupling, and Russia’s war against Ukraine have dealt an irreversible blow to three decades of open trade and burgeoning supply chains.
