A very sane (albeit old, 2003) view of Russian economy before and afte 1998 by Stiglitz. He critisises Eltsin, the favourite of Western mainstream media who created a cheesy and melodramatic image of him, whereas he was just a puppet of IMF and WB in what Stiglitz calls ‘The Ruin of Russia’.

And this, hahaha, is a critique of Stiglitz ‘Discontent’. The most deplorable and pathetic letterĀ  that I’ve ever read.
