In the May issue of Esquire, readers will find out why they should have more children than originally planned; which of Russia’s regions are the dirtiest, most expensive, suicidal and psychologically abnormal; why medical students are afraid to receive medical treatment in Russia; the cost of a medical school diploma; whether computer games are useful; and everything about placebos in a five-minute guide. They will also find a new story by Julian Barnes and the rules of life according to Gwyneth Paltrow and George Romero.
The May issue of Esquire was also released with a supplement: “Institutional Economics for Dummies," a book by Alexander Auzan. Institutional economics touches on a hot topic — the path for Russia’s further development. National Planning Institute president Alexander Auzan explains why everyone must stand for a duel, bribe traffic cops and refuse to bargain in supermarkets. He proves that the world is a collection of irrational and immoral opportunists and explains how to survive in such a world. Auzan also explains the different forms of ownership using the examples of an ordinary wardrobe, Bangladeshi industry and apples grown on Sparrow Hills.
