Explaining Russia

I have been away for a few days at a conference, thus the lack of posts. Meanwhile, I recommend this article entitled ’10 charts that explain Russia’ by Mark Adomanis. The charts speak for themselves.


One thought on “Explaining Russia”

  1. I read somewhere that the average wage grew, in dollar terms, 7-fold between 2000 and 2010. After that, I don’t think you need any charts. Although, yes, it’s also true that every quality-of-living statistic has improved by leaps and bounds since Putinism replaced the ‘western-liberal democracy’ model of the 1990s.
