So that intellectual slut (apologies to sex workers) is trying to jump on another bandwagon again, after doing Russia in together with the Russian mob? (on Sachs' Russian mafia connection see Janine R. Wedel, _Collision and Collusion_ - parts of which appeared in The Nation June 1, 1998 issue).

Sachs' role in Eastern Europe was best summarized by the Polish Minister of Finance: "Sachs did not make any new discoveries her, but he helped us in that he could make many peopl eunderstand the obvious truths thatthey might not have understood otherwise." In John Kenneth Galbraith's words, he did what economists do best - "providing the needed conclusions to those in the position to pay for them."
