Il 2010 è stato un anno sorprendente per la Turchia. Se da una parte, infatti, il processo di avvicinamento all’Ue presenta sempre più difficoltà, dall’altra il Paese è riuscito a ottenere una stabilizzazione politica e una crescita economica senza precedenti.

40% of Russian GDP is realized within so-called monogorod i.e. single-industry towns whose economic and social life revolves around the success of a single industrial complex.
But this model is showing signs of weakness. Around 20 of these towns have managed to overcome the 2008-2010 crisis only because of strong state intervention.
The first social disorders have occurred in some towns and others could follow soon. However, in spite of these troubles it is hard to conjecture the end of the monogorod.
The Egyptian revolution, which sparked on January 25, was widely considered successful when it actually succeeded after 18 days in forcing old Mubarak to step down.
