Resumen del libro
Russia's free-market reforms have not been undetermined by any single person of feature, contends Jerry Hough in this thought-provokin book. Hough argues that a combination of factors -including Boris Yeltsin's political reach into institutions of the financial world and mistaken assumptions about the nature of free-market economics- tarnished Russia's capitalist star.
