This book delivers an unexpected and unpopular message: the West played a pivotal role in the Russian economic disaster of the 1990s. It shows how Western advisors, including the International Monetary Fund and the U.S. Treasury, applied a narrow conception of economics that pushed Russia, after more than 70 years of communism, toward another failed Utopia.
