Socio-Economic Foundations of the Russian Post-S - The Resource-Based Economy and Estate-Based Social Structure of Contemporary Russia

by Simon Kordonsky, Svetlana Barsukova

Socio-Economic Foundations of the Russian Post-S - The Resource-Based Economy and Estate-Based Social Structure of Contemporary Russia Synopsis

Simon Kordonsky divides the social structure of contemporary Russia into distinct estates or social groups and describes each organization's unique resource-based political and economic nature. As he guides readers through Russia's peculiar service and support estate system, Kordonsky reveals how remarkably effective inventing and institutionalizing threats can be in the distribution of scarce resources in a social system of this kind. His book emphasizes the fundamental differences between resource-based economies and traditional risk-based economies and their role in Russia's future.
