PHOENIX - Who says you can't have your cake and eat it, too? All it takes is the New Math invented by the Harvard leftist "voodoo economists," led by Jeffrey Sachs of the Harvard Institute of International Development (HIID). And the greasing of the palms which helps make the unpalatable digestible.
During the 1992-1994 Yegor Gaidar-orchestrated "reforms," inspired by these heavy duty Harvard liberals - read "commies" - "these guys were able to carry on the biggest privatization in the world without creating a single private enterprise," a free market Russian economist Larisa Piyasheva seethed in a just-completed book by Anne Williamson, "How America Built the New Russian Oligarchy."
(Lest you forget, Gaidar was that "western darling" who was supposed to lead the "backward Russians'" on their road to capitalism and prosperity, under the tutelage of the HIID. Instead, this former 'aparatchik' had led his nation to corruption and ruin before being fired in 1994).
How is that possible? Williamson, who has covered Russia since 1987 for a myriad of U.S. publications, ranging from the Wall Street Journal to the SPY magazine, explains in her hard-hitting book due to be published soon by Farrar, Straus and Giroux:
If the preceding comes as a surprise to you, as it may to many readers who have exclusively relied on the establishment media as sources of information on Russia, then you ought to line up in front of the nation's bookstores when Ms. Williamson's book becomes available. Just as some brain-dead Americans did last on Mar. 23 so they could catch a glimpse of Hollywood's (also mostly brain-dead) stars arriving for the Academy Awards presentations.
For, the "Financial Crime of the Century" - the plunder of Russia's assets following the end of the Cold War by the New World Order (NWO) sharks and hyenas - will make a far more interesting a story than the high-tech sinking of the "Titanic." Even in monetary terms Russia's disaster was a bigger story. According to Vladimir Zhirinovsky, the leader of Russia's Liberal Democratic Party, it was a $400 billion heist. And here's the lowly "Titanic" crew trying to sink itself for the umpteenth time for a mere $1 billion or so!
Yet unlike TiM, which is well past believing that the destruction of Russia was an act of incompetence rather than malice, Ms. Williamson is prepared to give the NWO sharks and hyenas the benefit of the doubt. Which is why even the liberal doves may appreciate her book.
Note the preceding words - "unless economic sabotage of the former USSR really was the US's intention." Of course, such a sabotage WAS the U.S. intention (read the U.S. globalists' intention - see TiM GW Bulletins "Russia is Still the Bogey", "Kremlin and Wall St/NWO-Two Rival Gangs?", "What Dr.Glazyev Didn't Notice in Brzezinski's Ideas," and "Bleeding Russia Dry" - all TiM GW Bulletins from December 1997, plus "Yeltsin's 'Red October II'" - TiM GW Bulletin 98/3-10, 3/31/98)).
Suppose someone stabs you in the back with a knife. Does it make any difference to the victim - you - if the assailant were a Harvard klutz who tripped and committed a crime inadvertently, versus a CIA- or a Mossad-hired assassin? Common sense would suggest it does not (make any difference).
"Here, With Democracy! "
A sign scribbled in chalk on a snow-covered Moscow garbage can (April 1997)
The same logic applies to Russia. It should make no difference to the Russians whether or not the Harvard leftist, voodoo economists, such as the "Sachs et. al." crowd, tripped and fell on their swords. Or if they were merely the stupid executioners of a malicious act of deception and fraud of the Russian people perpetrated by their masters - the NWO Wall Street elite. The bottom line was the same. A knife in the back. No wonder the Russian peoples' view of the western-style reforms, is epitomized by the above photo below.
But even from a pragmatically western viewpoint, things got uglier, Williamson writes:
Guess Chubais hasn't heard of an old American adage - that "the only honest politician is the one who STAYS BOUGHT!" Trouble like Chubais' happens when people try to eat their cake and have it, too. May he, Yeltsin, Nemtsov, etc., not to mention Clinton, Albright or Rubin, all gag on their cakes before the Russian or American people do.
