It is sort of nice to have an example of a laissez faire (basically) economy, and the horrors associated with it. Other than that, it is entirely tragic.
'"Russia's entering a new stage of capitalism, moving away from the shadow economy, moving away from a black-market type of mentality, towards a more civilised, transparent, open form of capitalism."'
Wow. Russia has finally turned the corner and is on the way to national prosperity. Again. For the tenth time. This year.
