If you think that Russia represents too risky an opportunity for business ventures right now, think again, says author Richard Poe. Those entrepreneurs and corporations that are already there are making money hand over fist. It is in their own self-interest to promulgate newspaper and magazine articles that exaggerate the risk, play down the potential rewards, and keep people like you out. But now, with the no-nonsense, step-by-step guidance provided here, you can beat the "insiders" at their own game. How to Profit From the Coming Russian Boom offers reliable, relevant, hard-to-come-by information you won't find anywhere else, including how to understand the Russian "mindset," finesse the everchanging bureaucratic structures, and know "what's hot, what's not" right now, investment-wise; an up-to-the-minute directory of prime Russian business contacts ... plus a ready-made Rolodex of travel agents, car services, translators, lawyers, consultants, and government agencies; important insights into Russian culture and etiquette - including candid tips and traps on such daily concerns as lodging, travel, shopping, and entertainment; how to choose among those industries, markets, and regions that are competing for your dollar, with foolproof methods guaranteed to keep you from being conned; who the crooks are and who the players are ... or how to find a Russian partner you can really trust; and much more!
