World Disorder Lecture Series: Lawless Economy?

In this public lecture, Bill Browder, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Hermitage Capital Management, will give a firsthand critical analysis of the Russian economy–—particularly the absence of the rule of law–—laden with insights derived from his personal experience.

This lecture is made possible by a grant from the Cabot Corporation at the behest of former Cabot Board of Director and IAS Trustee Emeritus Ronaldo Schmitz. The talk is part of the World Disorder Lecture Series, organized by Jonathan Haslam, George F. Kennan Professor in the School of Historical Studies, and is free and open to the public.

The Institute will partner with local bookstore Labyrinth Books to make copies of Browder’s book Red Notice: A True Story of High Finance, Murder, and One Man’s Fight for Justice (Simon & Schuster, 2015) available at the event. A book-signing and reception will follow the lecture.
