The Soviet Collapse -Grain And Oil - Gaidar

Dear all,

I read a a very nice article about the Soviet collapse.

Beside the very compact and good overview which is particular for people like me (means connected to Russia somehow) it gives insights in
  • why the economical theories are finally still derived & connected from how peasant use there clods
  • why democracy is besides an "humanitarian dogma" also a economical necessity
  • where Russia may head
so, a recommended reading from my side.

You find it here (There is also a PDF available).

About this blog

This blog is a close up on Russia and the CIS. I am not giving you the big picture.
I would anyway fail. I am too long here. So beauty & decay,
education & corruption, high culture & kafka-style administration are meanwhile normal for me.
So this blog is like a painting from from Roy Lichtenstein... when you are with your nose on it :) You will just see the dots, not gaining any understanding of the whole.

Most things will look strange in this blog. But you can be sure, I would not live here, if there would not be a lot of great things here. Unfortunately, the weired stories are more interesting to tell & read.
Don’t judge Russia on this blog, if you want to know the country, come over and take a look by your own.
