河南——美国总统唐纳德·特朗普与朝鲜领导人金正恩在河内举行第2次峰会5天前,两位前越南通讯部长被捕 ,并以“涉及管理和公共资本滥用的违法行为被起诉。”据称,这两名官员以超过估值4倍的价格批准一家国有电信公司收购一家私营电视制作机构,并因此给国家造成了约3.07亿美元的损失。


越南开始开放经济时几乎不允许私人所有权,这一点与朝鲜非常相像。但在30年后,像许多发展中国家一样,越南同样无法避免追求财富的精英们所产生的不利影响。有证据显示,强势私人企业对国内政策产生了过度的影响。越南前主席 Trýõng Tấn Sang在人民日报刊发的一篇评论文章显示,越南现在面临比共产党执政70年历史上任何时候都更严重的腐败现象。“执政者和寻租者相互勾结滥用国家政策,”他写道。“他们所安排的商业交易非常有利于某些个人和团体,但却在扰乱经济的同时对国家预算造成不可估量的损失。”

One really has to wonder what the "buccaneering" Brexiteers have to complain about.
