Fighting Corruption Inside Putin’s Russia with Bill Browder
University of Chicago Institute of Politics, Chicago IL
Institute of Politics
Bill Browder’s journey started on the South Side of Chicago and moved through the University of Chicago to Stanford Business School to the dog-eat-dog world of hedge fund investing in the 1990s. It continued in Moscow, where Browder made his fortune heading the largest investment fund in Russia after the Soviet Union’s collapse. But when he exposed the corrupt oligarchs who were robbing the companies in which he was investing, Vladimir Putin turned on him, expelled him from Russia, and stole $230 million in tax payments. Browder embarked on an unrelenting quest for justice in Sergei’s name, exposing the towering cover-up that leads right up to Putin. He joins the IOP and the Pozen Family Center for Human Rights to talk about his story and his new book, Red Notice.
