The Liquidity of the Economy and Citizens is Key to a Rapid Post-crisis Recovery

Many economic experts are already predicting that the pandemic caused by the Corona virus will be a bigger challenge for the world economy than anything we’ve faced in the recent past, including the 2008 financial crisis. The Government of Serbia has space, primarily in its fiscal policy, to respond to the challenges facing businesses and citizens

Comment by Yanis Varoufakis

Europe is Unprepared for the COVID-19 Recession

If there is one European body that has consistently demonstrated its lack of fitness for managing economic crises, it is the Eurogroup of eurozone finance ministers. True to form, it will respond to the COVID-19 crisis with heroic announcements heralding impressive numbers that disguise the irrelevance and timidity of the agreed policies

Proven Values for Both Good Times and Bad

In times of hardship, examples of true cooperation like the Nordic one seem even more meaningful than during “regular” times. Yet such relationships, based on shared values and a willingness to achieve results that contribute to the mutual development and well-being of citizens, will be equally if not even more important for the Western Balkan region once the current challenges pass.

Comment by Zoran Panović

Pandemic Genre

Prior to the storm of the Corona virus, Vučić determined that Agriculture Minister Branislav Nedimović should be first below him on the SNS election list, only to expressly comprehend that Health Minister Zlatibor Lončar would come to the fore. Although this now comes across as being slightly inhumane, the main political points will be won and lost in the health sector. And in security

What Can Be Learned From Finland

Education System – One of the Best in The World

Finland's education system is considered one of the best education systems in the world. It has been a top performer since the first Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) triennial international survey back in 2000. Finland's education system works because its entire structure has been around several core principles. First and foremost, equal access to education is a constitutional right. Another important principle is that one should be allowed to choose their educative path, which should never lead to a dead end. Learners can always continue their studies on an upper level of education
