Rise of the Minigarch

I am told that many oligarchs in Russia are now known as minigarchs. They're down to their last £100 million.


  1. Hard to know what to say.
    If I were them I'd be worrying about my future.
    As ordinary Russians grow poorer they'll want their oil and gas back.

  2. best foriegn policy you can have, oil under 50 dollars a barrel.

  3. Don't think the prefixes (prefices?) are coterminous - mini doesn't relate to oli - or it would be maxigarchs downsizing to minigarchs. Oligarchy is rule by the few (oli- means few in Greek.

    Isn't pedantry fulfilling?
