Bill Browder

A Tale of Modern Russia

The New York Times has an extraordinary article running in Thursday's paper about an investor named Bill Browder who has, let us say, run into some problems with the Russian government.

Bill was in my Aspen Institute Crown Fellowship Class a few years back, and told us incredible stories about his adventures in Russian capitalism. This story is a must read for any one wanting to get a better sense of how Russia has evolved in the age of Putin. It is isn't pretty.
