Video description
MBS is transforming Saudi Arabia and the Middle East.

Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO

Mohammad bin Salman was designated as Saudi Arabia's new crown prince in June 2017. Since then, he has rapidly consolidated power and led Saudi Arabia towards some progressive reforms, such as granting women the right to drive. He also has plans to privatize certain segments of the economy, with the goal of reducing Saudi Arabia's economic dependency on oil. These changes, along with a suppression of Saudi Arabia's religious Right, could potentially begin to destabilize one of the Middle East's most powerful nations.

Vladimir Putin's topless photos, explained

You have probably seen the odd, and often shirtless, photo-ops staged by Russian President Vladimir Putin. While most world leaders content themselves with appearing at sober state functions or occasional political rally, Putin's official photocalls suggest a rich, Walter-Mitty-esque fantasy life. But even though we may think these photos are just Putin stroking his wild ego, there is actually a very rational political strategy behind them.
