The Strange Case of Mart Laar


The highly successful East European economic model began with a history teacher, a man who freely admitted that he was ignorant of economics and business. But, he was an honest man who found himself at the onset of a new enterprise and simply did the best he could. That man was named Mart Laar and Eastern Europe’s economic success traces back to him.



I ran into Mart at a conference some years ago and instantly realized that his story was terribly instructive and needed to be told.

In this issue you’ll find that story, coverage of the classic book Flatland, and more.
