ABSTRACT
The article reports on the resignation of economic adviser Andrei Illarionov from the Kremlin. It is suggested that Illarionov, unlike Russian President Vladimir Putin, advocated privatization as the cure for Russian's economic ills and proposed strict budget controls. It is suggested that Illarionov's departure marks a decisive shift in Russia's economic direction from the Yeltsin-era free market to more state control.
