Mongolians prepare to elect a new president

[Нийтэлсэн: 25.06.2017] [Эх сурвалж: ]

ADDRESSING more than 3,000 supporters in a packed arena five days before the first round of Mongolia’s presidential election on June 26th, Khaltmaa Battulga, the Democratic Party (DP) nominee, promised the things candidates everywhere tend to promise: modern infrastructure, better jobs and restored national pride. Other pledges were more specific to Mongolia, such as one [...]

The IMF bails Mongolia out—again

[Нийтэлсэн: 28.02.2017] [Эх сурвалж: ]

WHEN Jim Anderson first lived in Mongolia in 1993, there was one local word foreigners could not help but learn: baikhgui, which translates as “absent” or “unavailable”. Bread? Rice? Electricity? Often as not, they were baikhgui, he recounts in a blog post for the World Bank, for which he has returned to Mongolia as country [...]

Mongolia loses its shine—and some of its treasured autonomy

[Нийтэлсэн: 14.10.2014] [Эх сурвалж: ]

NOT long ago Mongolia seemed a blessed land, with growth rates—over 17% in 2011 and around 12% in each of 2012 and 2013—that were the envy of the world. Mining was the promise in a country with annual GDP per person of less than $2,000 just five years ago and $4,000 today. Some $3 trillion [...]

Elbegdorj scrapes home

[Нийтэлсэн: 28.06.2013] [Эх сурвалж: ]

SINCE throwing off Soviet domination and embracing democracy 23 years ago, Mongolians have got used to electing their leaders. But their sixth free presidential election, held on June 26th, marked something of a departure from the high drama of earlier contests. This time there was less acrimony, less campaign buzz, and lower voter participation. Yet [...]

A horde of data

[Нийтэлсэн: 07.12.2012] [Эх сурвалж: ]

IN THE second half of the 20th century, Mongolia warmed by 2°C—an increase few, if any, other countries can match. Recent change has brought droughts and zuds (winter storms) which complicate the lives of the country’s herders of sheep, cattle and goats as they adjust to a market economy after decades of communism. This year’s [...]

Putting og in the yurt

[Нийтэлсэн: 30.11.2012] [Эх сурвалж: ]

GLANCE at Mongolia’s agricultural-output tables provides a vivid sense of what a difficult place it can be for vegetarians. Three kinds of meat top the chart—mutton, beef and goat. Potatoes make a decent showing, above camel meat but below horse meat. Carrots, cabbage and onions all feature, but only as statistical afterthoughts. The title of [...]

Change at the top

[Нийтэлсэн: 31.07.2012] [Эх сурвалж: ]

THE MONTH-LONG wrangle over the make-up of Mongolia’s new governing coalition is almost over. It was announced on July 19th that the Democratic Party (DP), which has 31 of the parliament’s 76 seats and is the party of the current president, will rule in coalition with several smaller parties that have a total of 11 [...]

‘Rabidly Partisan Politics’ Could Leave Mongolia Struggling With The Resource Curse

[Нийтэлсэн: 30.04.2012] [Эх сурвалж: ]

POLITICS in Mongolia has been rough-and-tumble since 1990, when the country escaped Soviet domination to become a vibrant if imperfect democracy. But when scores of security forces raided the home of a former president, Nambariin Enkhbayar, and detained him over what officials call a serious case of corruption, politics took a new and ugly turn.

The Mongolian sandwich

[Нийтэлсэн: 07.10.2011] [Эх сурвалж: ]

COUNTRIES choose their friends but not their neighbours. Mongolia has just two, China and Russia. Both are huge; and both, at different periods in history, used to dominate it. Two decades after the collapse of the Soviet Union, Mongolia—once called the 16th Soviet republic—is enjoying the exercise of full sovereignty. And it is expecting a [...]

Mistah Khurts, he free

TO THE surprise of many, Bat Khurts, the head of Mongolia’s National Security Council, is back at his desk in Ulaanbaatar, and not sitting in a German prison, awaiting trial for his alleged involvement in a kidnapping in 2003. The charges that allowed his detention have been dropped. Among those surprised was the Foreign Office [...]

THE locked doors of a public library in West Norwood, a drab part of south London, are an unlikely economic indicator. But a plaintive note explaining the closure—thieves have stripped the roof of its copper cladding, letting in rain on the books below—hints at profound changes to the global economy. And copper is the metal [...]

No pastoral idyll

“THIS is a time when social contradictions are becoming conspicuous in our country,” China’s ruling Politburo concluded at a meeting on May 30th. As they were gathering, security forces in Inner Mongolia, north of the capital, were clamping down on the province’s biggest outbreak of ethnic unrest in decades. Elsewhere, messages of sympathy were pouring [...]

Перед началом войны в Ираке Дональд Рамсфелд (Donald Rumsfeld), на тот момент министр обороны США, в одном из заявлений сделал комментарий о «старой» и «новой» Европе. В 2011 году все большее число бизнесменов будут проводить различие между «старыми» и «новыми» развивающимися рынками, пишет обозреватель The Economist.

Nomads no more

[Нийтэлсэн: 22.10.2010] [Эх сурвалж: ]

MONGOLIANS were until recently wont to describe themselves as “beggars sitting on a huge pile of gold”. The country has vast but largely untapped mineral deposits. Until recently wages were low and jobs scarce. Shoppers in Ulan Bator, the capital, were not spoilt for choice—unless they were in the market for dried meat, vegetables or [...]

Bitter toll As millions of animals die by famine, some herders long for the bad old days

[Нийтэлсэн: 11.04.2010] [Эх сурвалж: ]

IN A country where livestock outnumber people by an order of 16 to one, animal welfare is no small matter. In Mongolia this year the animals are not faring well at all, and the 2.8m human inhabitants are feeling their pain. Hundreds of thousands of Mongolians depend directly upon animals for their own livelihood. The [...]

The Dalai Lama sends envoys to China once again, as our correspondent returns to Tibet

CHINESE officials appear ready to resume talks with representatives of the Dalai Lama after a 15 month lapse, but in the Tibetan capital, Lhasa, the authorities remain on guard. Few expect the talks to make much progress, nor tensions in Tibet to subside. As the Dalai Lama’s envoys headed to China for what are expected [...]

Авторы “индекса Биг Мака” сочли юань самой недооцененной валютой мира

[Нийтэлсэн: 09.01.2010] [Эх сурвалж: ]

Журнал The Economist опубликовал “индекс Биг Мака”, который оценивает покупательную способность национальных валют только по одному показателю: сколько стоит знаменитый гамбургер от McDonald’s. По подсчетам журнала The Economist, самой переоцененной валютой мира является норвежская крона. В Осло за популярный гамбургер потребителю придется отдать более 7 долларов. В Китае, валюта которого недооценена по отношению к американской [...]

“INNER-PARTY democracy is the life of the party,” enthused China’s former president, Jiang Zemin, as he prepared to hand over to Hu Jintao seven years ago. It could, he said, promote democracy in the country as a whole. But Mr Hu’s cautious experiments with reform inside the party appear to have fizzled. So too, it [...]

Ценовой шок на продовольственном рынке в 2007-2008 годах заставляет некоторые страны говорить о необходимости переключения части ресурсов на субсидирование продовольствия – для автономного развития и во избежание будущих кризисов. Но необходимость накормить 9 млрд человек в 2050 году говорит о другом: сельское хозяйство должно быть максимально эффективным. Для этого необходимы рынки и международная торговля. Инвестирование [...]
