A penetrating look into the extreme plutocracy Vladimir Putin has created and its implications for Russias future Full of insight and informed judgment, former diplomat Anders slund takes aim at the authoritarian kleptocracy and the inner circles of power.John Lloyd, Financial Times This insightful study explores how the economic system Vladimir Putin has developed in Russia works to consolidate control over the country. By appointing his close associates as heads of state enterprises and by giving control of the FSB and the judiciary to his friends from the KGB, he has enriched his business friends from Saint Petersburg with preferential government deals. Thus, Putin has created a super wealthy and loyal plutocracy that owes its existence to authoritarianism. Much of this wealth has been hidden in offshore havens in the United States and the United Kingdom, where companies with anonymous owners and black money transfers are allowed to thrive. Though beneficial to a select few, this system has left Russias economy in untenable stagnation, which Putin has tried to mask through military might.

Full of insight and informed judgment, former diplomat Anders slund takes aim at the authoritarian kleptocracy and the inner circles of power.John Lloyd, Financial Times [A] superb book.Martin Wolf, Financial Times There are many books already on the Russian oligarchy, but slunds is unique. He does not hesitate to name names and to identify Russian and foreign banks, financial institutions, and government agencies which have facilitated this massive and arguably historically singular episode Oleh Havrylyshyn, Atlantic Council An interesting book. Ayse Dietrich, International Journal of Russian Studies Finalist for the Hayek Prize, sponsored by the Manhattan Institute An insightful and authoritative guide to Russias economy since the fall of communism by the foremost Western expert on the subject.Daniel Treisman, Professor of Political Science, University of California, Los Angeles Anders slunds economic analysis is impeccable. This is a hard-hitting, fact-based account of Putins Russia.Paul Gregory, University of Houston and Research Fellow, Hoover Institution, Stanford University No one in the outside world has followed and analyzed Russias economic policies and trajectory since the demise of the Soviet Union as thoroughly as Anders slund.
