В «тучные годы» высоких цен на нефть страны Персидского Залива, как и Россия, не прилагали достаточных усилий для диверсификации своих экономик.

Russia's Innovation Facade

Russia’s state-controlled push for innovation is widely discussed, but has had little real impact. Walking across the Skolkovo village, a major innovation hub near Moscow, gives the impression of being at the midst of Russia’s booming innovation culture. The Russian Silicon Valley, as called by then-President Dmitry Medvedev in 2010, hosts a futuristic and expensive state-of-the-art business school campus with its design inspired by paintings of “Suprematism” by avant-garde artist Kazimir Malevich.
