I Am An Ukrainian

My readers have to excuse me, but these days I can’t think about monetary policy. What is on my mind is the terrible events in Ukraine. I have for the past 15 years spend a lot of time in Central and Eastern Europe. I have seen the miracle of a country like Poland. But I have also seen how the people of Ukraine have been cheated by their corrupted and criminal politicians from seeing the same kind of progress as their neighbours in Poland.

I could write a lot about how I feel about this, but you have to excuse me because today I am not able to express my sadness about the terrible events in Kiev. I fear things will get even worse in the coming days. I pray it won’t.

Today I am an Ukrainian. Please watch this.

    Thank you so much for posting this video. The work for freedom – sometimes it seems as though it has scarcely even begun.

  2. Lars – At the start of the year, you said you hoped you’d be able to post less abt monetary policy. You were right… there are things more important than monetary policy!
