La reforma del complejo industrial militar de Rusia

Durante la administración del Presidente Vladimir Putin, Rusia ha iniciado un programa extenso para reestructurar su industria de defensa que se ha contraído dramáticamente desde la era soviética. Este proceso ha tenido algunos avances, pero persisten los problemas estructurales fundamentales que conducen a que Rusia exporte cantidades importantes de armas avanzadas a regiones proclives al conflicto, lo que ocasiona que el Kremlin entre en desacuerdo con Europa, Estados Unidos y otros países.

En los últimos seis años, la administración Putin ha promovido la nacionalización y consolidación de compañías de defensa del sector privado para convertirlas en holdings grandes, de composición vertical y controlados por el gobierno. En noviembre de 2000, Putin aprobó la creación de una agencia exportadora de armas única supervisada por el gobierno, Rosoboronexport, para acabar con la competencia autodestructiva que se había desarrollado entre las empresas exportadoras de armas más importantes del país. Hace unos meses, la agencia obtuvo el derecho exclusivo para vender armas rusas a países extranjeros.

En este momento, el gobierno promueve la creación de una institución similar en el sector de la aviación, la nueva United Aircraft Building Corporation (Corporación Unida de Construcción de Aeronaves) que incluye a fabricantes importantes de aeronaves de ala fija del Estado y privados. Quienes propusieron la fusión creen que mejorará la eficiencia de la industria aeronáutica rusa y, al disminuir los costos, hará que los aviones rusos sean más atractivos para los compradores extranjeros.

    The Next Battle in China’s War on Corruption

    • Chinese President Xi Jinping knows well the threat that corruption poses to the authority of the Communist Party of China and the state it controls. 
    • But moving beyond Xi's anti-corruption purge to build robust and lasting anti-graft institutions will not be easy, owing to enduring opportunities for bureaucratic capture.

    Putting Europe’s Long-Term Unemployed Back to Work

    Across the European Union, millions of people who are willing and able to work have been unemployed for a year or longer, at great cost to social cohesion and political stability. If the EU is serious about stopping the rise of populism, it will need to do more to ensure that labor markets are working for everyone.

    A Belt and Road for the Americas?

    In a time of global uncertainty, a vision of “made in the Americas” prosperity provides a unifying agenda for the continent. If implemented, the US could reassert its historical leadership among a group of countries that share its fundamental values, as well as an interest in inclusive economic growth and rising living standards.

    How Best to Promote Research and Development

    Clearly, there is something appealing about a start-up-based innovation strategy: it feels democratic, accessible, and so California. But it is definitely not the only way to boost research and development, or even the main way, and it is certainly not the way most major innovations in the US came about during the twentieth century.

    Preparing for the Trump Trade Wars

    In the first 11 months of his presidency, Donald Trump has failed to back up his words – or tweets – with action on a variety of fronts. But the rest of the world's governments, and particularly those in Asia and Europe, would be mistaken to assume that he won't follow through on his promised "America First" trade agenda.
