"20 years Putin: Why China trumps Russia". This was the topic of Gabor Steingart's interview with Michael Rochlitz about economic competition between Russia and China.
Michael Rochlitz recently published a book together with Alexander Libman from the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität in Munich in which the two scientists compare the economic development processes and the reform efforts of Russia and China. The book deals primarily with the question of how the two authoritarian countries create incentive structures for economic growth in their peripheral regions.
Gabor Steingart is a journalist, author, and editor of the "Morning Briefing". From 2010 to 2018, he was first editor-in-chief and then editor of the Handelsblatt.
