Russian economist touts Belarus' economic system

Russian economist Mikhail Khazin told the Ekho Moskvy radio station that Belarus and China pose a threat to the global financial elite.   The economist touted Belarus's economic model: "Russia cannot copy Belarus' model but in Germany this is possible. If the German leaders decide that they need a socialist system, they would come to Belarus, all 100,000 German bureaucrats, establish the same system in Germany within three months, and immediately get a competitive edge as compared to the current system," he said.
