Joie de vivre and fine wines won out as the Roving Eye and Roving Son spurned NATO's anti-Russian paranoia in Brussels in favor of breaking out to Provence. The road passed through towns strong in culture and artisan delights yet paved with malaise, revealing why - at a time China and Russia are forging ahead with mega-deals - locals in NATO's southern territory view its economic march with Van Goghian apprehension. - Pepe Escobar

Indian prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi's investor-friendly image, nurtured while overseeing a boom in Gujarat state, likely appeals greatly to Chinese firms frustrated by India's opaque regulations and labor laws. However, while a victory for Modi could usher in a new bilateral era when the country's voting ends mid-May, there's a chance that nationalism could sabotage that opportunity. - Santosh Pai

The talks have
The occupation
Goes on,

Was hier im Gewand von Wissenschaft daherkommt ist reine Ideologie. Wäre sie auf die Vereinigten Staaten beschränkt, könnte dies der Rest der Welt verschmerzen. Das ist jedoch nicht der Fall. Und so besteht die ökonomische Freiheit nicht in der Freiheit souveräner Staaten, die ihren jeweiligen kulturellen Traditionen und spezifischen gesellschaftlichen Bedingungen gemäßen Wirtschaftsmodelle zu entwickeln.

Im confused. A few weeks ago we were told in the West that people occupying government buildings in Ukraine was a very good thing. These people, we were told by our political leaders and elite media commentators, were pro-democracy protestors.
