    Nationalism in Russia non-existant

    Bush sending huge sums to Russia as reparation for the catastrophes inflicted by Harvard Consultants!!

    "The best and brightest of America's premier university came to Moscow in the
    1990s to teach Russians how to be capitalists. This is the inside story of how their
    efforts led to scandal and disgrace.
    Since being named president of Harvard University in 2001, former U.S.
    Treasury secretary Lawrence Summers has sparked a series of controversies that
    have grabbed headlines. Summers incurred the wrath of African-Americans when
    he belittled the work of controversial religion professor Cornel West (who left for
    Princeton University); last year he infuriated faculty and students alike when he
    seemed to disparage the innate scientific abilities of women at a Massachusetts
    economic conference, igniting a national uproar that nearly cost him his job; last
    fall brought the departure of Jack Meyer, the head of Harvard Management Co.,
    which oversees the school's endowment but had inflamed some in the community
    because of the multimillion-dollar salaries it pays some of its managers.
    Then, in quiet contrast, there is the case of economics professor Andrei Shleifer,
    who in the mid-1990s led a Harvard advisory program in Russia that collapsed in
    disgrace. In August, after years of litigation, Harvard, Shleifer and others agreed
    to pay at least $31 million to settle a lawsuit brought by the U.S. government.
    Harvard had been charged with breach of contract, Shleifer and an associate,
    Jonathan Hay, with conspiracy to defraud the U.S. government."
