Aslund has a new book out: How Capitalism Was Built.
He opens with a full broadside. "The main struggle of postcommunist transformation stood between radical market reformers, who desired a swift and complete transition, and rent seekers, whose desire was to make money on a prolonged period of market distortions." Oh crap. See, Anders, this is just going to piss people off.
BTW, the book is word for word from his lectures at Georgetown.
