Sexy designer lingerie is displayed for sale in a shop window opposite St Basils Cathedral on the edge of Moscow's Red Square. From behind the walls of Moscow's Kremlin, Russia has been ruled by Czars, by Bolsheviks, and more recently by democratically elected Presidents. Outside the Kremlin walls a new power has emerged: money. Since embracing capitalism, Moscow has become one of the worldÕs most expensive cities. Luxury goods are abundant and fetch the same prices as in London or New York. But beyond the bright lights of Moscow, the average salary in the country is just $4,000 a year. Moscow is an enclave where fortunes are being made and there is no shortage of places to spend it.
