In Conversation with: Oliver Bullough and Roman Borisovich on Kleptocracy: What and Why?

Kleptocracy is to the 21st century, what communism was to the 20th century. It is the great rival to democracy, a system of corrupt authoritarianism that combines thuggishness that would have been familiar to the Victorians, with offshore wizardry that only a handful of financial engineers can understand. An ever-greater share of the world’s countries are sliding into kleptocracy, and everyone needs to understand what that means. In this first talk, Roman Borisovich – banker, insurance executive, anti-corruption activist, and hidden camera investigator – guides us through the best known of all the kleptocracies: Russia, the land of his birth.
