An important book that gives Estonia a vision and plan for a prosperous future.
The New Estonian Golden Age introduces an alternative view on age-old and controversial topics that are holding up Estonian aspirations of prosperity. Estonia, known as "The Baltic Tiger", is one of New Europe's most impressive economic turn-around stories since gaining independence from the Soviet Union in 1991. They implemented innovative ideas such as flat tax, online voting and e-government. At one point, the leaders were predicting that Estonia would become one of Europe's five richest nations. Now the nation is on the verge of an unprecedented economic crisis, the leaders have retracted this statement as too ambitious. This book contends that if leaders combine pragmatic long term vision with bold decisions, the dream can still come true.
