I suppose I should qualify my ascription of "native Russian" unto myself by saying I am in the US nowadays and for some time.

It is quite possible to become a successful entrepreneur in Russia, to be sure, although neither tax laws nor bureaucratic requirements make it as fluid and simple as in America, and the most efficient path taken de facto is to avoid following them to some measure.

My point was more that when you see really exciting figures like hundreds of millions to billions of dollars from Russians, there is something else at work than the fledgling capital markets for the hoi polloi.




>>"I suppose I should qualify my ascription of "native Russian" unto myself by saying I am in the US nowadays and for some time." Sorry, my mistake.


Or more likely, mine, as saying I'm a "native Russian" may give the impression that I wrote this comment in Russia.


Your writing doesn't exactly place you in Russia, more like U.S. East Coast academia.

You have a follower ;-)
