Vladimir Putin : Russia getting stronger?

Russia getting stronger?

Read recently that Russia (unlike the US) has no debt and now has the second largest gold supply in the world. If the West continues to overspend and the world currencies continue to devalue, could Russia emerge stronger than the rest?

They have the 6th largest economy as of now (and growing), have a budget surplus, and their influence is spreading in the Middle east and neighboring regions. This and the people are more traditional.

Anyone think that they will reclaim their status as a world superpower in the next generation or so?

Fancy meeting you here, Joe. I was just seeing if Putin had a imdb page and lo and behold...

Surprised there isn't more current news here.

Re: Russia getting stronger?

I am surprised as well. And yes indeed. It is a small world :)
