Ukraine is shock treatment for a complacent world. After the fall of the Soviet Union Russia In 1989 we looked as if we were about to enter a new era of global collaboration. The European Union would gradually expand. Perhaps even Russia and the old Soviet states will join in in due course. The two remaining superpowers, the US and China, would forge close ties and, together with Europe, would train their vast resources to create a better future for humanity. World peace would be secured. With wars a thing of the past, we would work together to ensure people have the education, health care and other vital supports they need to live safely, take risks and be free.

Communism was dead. At least, as the Finnish economist Anu Partanen puts it in her masterpiece The Norse Theory of Everything; In search of a better life: “No one wants to live in a society that does not support individual freedom, entrepreneurship and open markets. The truth is (as Finland proves) that free market capitalism and universal social policies go well together – it’s not about big government, it’s about smart government.”
