bigger than Ukraine

Dan Drezner of the Fletcher School has a lot of smart ideas. He is particularly astute on foreign economic policy questions.  Now he has an excellent piece on how to handle Putin and Russia.

Like me, he's skeptical about sending western weapons to  Ukraine. Yet he has some excellent suggestions on how to pressure Putin on other issues of importance to him.
  1. Create a pathway for Sweden and Finland to join NATO
  2. Finish negotiating TTIP.
  3. Start building CoCom II
  4. Pay attention to Moldova.
  5. Play the long game of a frozen conflict in Ukraine.

I hope western leaders will pay attention and go for it.
