He has also created a super wealthy and loyal plutocracy that owes its existence to him personally. In a conversation with Kennan Institute Deputy Director William Pomeranz, Atlantic Council Senior Fellow Anders Aslund discussed his new book “Russia’s Crony Capitalism” and how Putin has begun to mask economic stagnation through military adventurism.
