Anders Åslund is a Swedish born economist with US deep state connections.


Aslund did his military service at the Swedish Defence Forces Interpreter School in Uppsala and learned Russian there, a tell-tale sign of early intelligence connections.

He graduated with a degree in business administration from the Stockholm School of Economics and then applied for a diploma program at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Åslund was a diplomat in Kuwait, Poland, Geneva and Moscow. He speaks English, Russian, German, Polish and French fluently.

Åslund was a panelist for the session on Prospects For The Former Soviet Republics at the 1992 Bilderberg. He is a member of the Integrity Initiative's US Cluster.[1]

Russian economic involvement

From November 1991 to January 1994, Åslund worked with Jeffrey Sachs and David Lipton as a senior advisor to the Russian reform government under President Boris Yeltsin and Acting Prime Minister Yegor Gaidar.[2] He worked also with Deputy Prime Ministers Anatoly Chubais and Boris Fedorov. This economic program led to several millions Russian dying early and a collapse in average life expectancy, thanks to a planned collapse in living standards and public services, but made large fortunes other places.

In 2013, his fellow neoconservative writer David Frum wrote that “Anders Aslund at the Peterson Institute is one of the world’s leading experts on the collapse of the planned Soviet economy,” a huge understatement, as Aslund was one of the main engineers behind this collapse.[3]

Later Career

He was fellow at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace in Washington DC from 1994 to 2005. From 2006 to 2015, he worked at the Peterson Institute for International Economics.

He is per 2020 a Board Member of the mighty NATO think-tank Atlantic Council.
