Key moments

Any reform or radical transformations should be based on continuity and consistency even if they are revolutionary changes.
Mikhail Abyzov
Government should be smaller and smarter and more strategic.
Anthony Blair
Governments that have established effective institutions over the course of centuries that work to enhance the efficiency of the entire economy, political system and social system work for the entire population as a whole and achieve success.
