  1. It’s discouraging to know even more of how the world’s wealthy are undercutting any semblance of morality developed through history. When will the moment arrive when the masses will demand that natural resources belong not to greedy individuals but to the people of a nation to preserve for future generations?

  2. After Soviet Union collapsed there were two instances which could provide the protection and start capital to these new “entrepreneurs” in their absurd successful wealth collection (=stealing) projects. The most important was organised crime (Russian Mafia) and later the heirs of the old security apparatus who mamaged to return the states role. The leaders of Russian Mafia in Russia and Ukraine were Jews. They did choose the suitable people with a flexible moral to be in the focus in the performation the “collection and concentration” operations. That explains the incredible huge amount of Jewish oligarchs from Russia, Ukraine and other soviet states.

    In the 90’s it was not difficult to establish a successful business in the region. The problem came when the new business begun to make money and grow. Then emerged those “people” who made the business proposition – give us the majority ownership of your business or prepare for the funeral of your family. That made possible to create in a couple of years those massive concentrations of Soviet assets in hands of those oligarchs. When the concentration was performed much of the financial assets and ownership was transferred to western/international tax havens and the oligarchs got new citizenship in western countries and Israel. When Putin’s gang managed to get the power this massive asset reorganisation management system was partly stopped and Russian economy begun to get more normal “western” forms and oligarchs had to adopt new more state respecting “rules” in the game or leave the country permanently. However total reorganisation the financial and industrial order created in the wild years of 90’s was already to late.

    1. @ SimoHurtta:

      I agreed with everything you wrote in your comment up to the passage above. Whoa, that’s a wild bit of revisionist history. Putin introduced “more normal western forms?” Is that what the Russian economy is today? A “more normal western economy?” The oligarchs are respecting the “rules of the state?”

      It’s also worth noting that Jews were not the only oligarchs. There were/are non-Jewish oligarchs as well.

      I don’t want to get into a disputation about Putin as we’ve had our disagreements on this in the past. Nor is Putin the subject of my post. Do not reply to this post.

  3. Not all Soviet oligarchs were/are Jews, nobody claimed that. Jews represented about 0.4 percent of Soviet Union’s population in 1989. The majority of those oligarchs created in the 90’s are Jews. The seven oligarchs who controlled 50% of Russia’s economy during the 1990s, six were Jewish: Boris Berezovsky, Vladimir Guzinsky, Alexander Smolensky, Mikhail Khodorkovsky, Mikhail Friedman and Valery Malkin.How they managed to get their economical power is essential and the role of organised crime is avoided in the analysis of this “process”.

    I have worked as a bank economist, studied also soviet trade as one of the subjects in university. I live 200 kilometres from the Russian border, I have visited several times Soviet Union and Russia. I know some Russians and people who have made business in Russia. Russia is hardly today a total dictatorship. Equally USA (or Israel) is today no model of democracy and equality.

    1. @ SimoHurrtta: While you mentioned the Jewish oligarchs you neglected to mention those who enabled them, and without whom they could never have become oligarchs: Boris Yeltsin and Vladimir Putin. Neither Jewish. Oh and btw, Putin’s wealth far exceeds the wealthiest of the oligarchs. Estimates put it in the range of $50-200 billion.

      Russia is hardly today a total dictatorship.

      Well, of course it maintains the vestiges of democracy. There are elections, of sorts. THere are a few dissenters (those who haven’t yet been poisoned to death). As for Israel and the U.S., I would never proclaim either a “model” of anything. But the U.S. is a far freer country despite its many failings.

      As I wrote earlier, I do not wish to prolong this. Putin is not the subject of the post or of this blog generally. I’d like to keep it that way.
