Just a brief note that I’ve been seeing stuff I thought I’d edited go out into the emails lately, including a mishap yesterday where it read the FSB and FSO officials were collecting QR-codes when in actuality their own codes didn't work and that was being sorted. Apologies. Was a weird mix of stuff I’d just thrown down as a space holder and separate link I ended up not running with. I think it’s due to having had the page open on two separate tabs and my broken keyboard continually losing loose keys to be reattached as well as inserting periods at random intervals. I will do better to avoid these lapses in judgment and technical prowess in the many days to come. That is all. Oh, and while I’ll probably make reference to it tomorrow, I thought you might like this chart from Iika Korhonen’s latest policy brief from BOFIT on Russia’s long-term growth potential.

There are a ton of things going into gross capital formation but just worth noting. Other stuff in there worth peaking at including another chart I plan to use. Hopefully you’re having a pleasant day or evening.
