Economic Power and Economic Strategy in Russia
In recent years the power relationship between business and the state in Russia has moved strongly in favour of the state, with the state increasingly involved in Russia’s leading business sectors and with increasing state ownership in key industries. This book surveys these important changes and assesses their significance. It discusses how strategic government policies have been formulated, and examines the objectives and means of policy concerning strategic assets. It explores the impact of increasing government control of the economy on both domestic business and foreign investors, and assesses the implications for Russia’s external relations. It includes coverage of the key energy sector.
