To put it in perspective, an edition of the Wall Street Journal Europe that included a profile of him after his first eight months on the job also featured pieces on president Yeltsin’s choice of Sergei Kiriyenko as his successor, the potential implications of a single currency for Europe’s banking sectors, and the uphill struggle faced by the Czech Republic, Poland and Hungary to get into the European Union.
