Did you know that more billionaires call Moscow home than any other city on the planet?
Apparently, Moscow just passed New York City to claim this bragging right.
My brother just took a job hunting trip to Moscow and was blown away with the number of firms itching to hire him. (He's fluent in Russian and has a dozen years of startup telecom experience.)
He told me that the job market is so hot there right now, that "run-of-the-mill equity analysts can make $600,000 per year in Moscow."
The Russian boom is so furious, I also read that something ridiculous like 500 cars are being bought there EACH DAY. It's hard to imagine that pace keeping up. Though it would help explain the jam-packed trains.
There's always a bull market, somewhere.
