    Corporate Raiding in post-Soviet Russia2013In: Baltic Worlds, ISSN 2000-2955, Vol. 6, no 2, p. 4-8Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Hostile takeovers and company captures have been an everyday reality in the post-Soviet Russian economy. This phenomenon is called “reiderstvo” in Russian, a term which is derived from the English word "raiding”. The article introduces the reader into the subject, identifies the main historical phases of "reiderstvo" during the 1990s and 2000s, provides description of a typical raiding attack and connects the "reiderstvo" phenomenon to activities of informal networks in the Russian business and state apparatus.

    The Russian Economy at the Crossroads: Before and Beyond the Ukrainian Crisis. Interview with Andrei Yakovlev2015In: Baltic Worlds, ISSN 2000-2955, Vol. 8, no 3-4, p. 62-66Article, review/survey (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Interview article with Andrei Yakovlev, professor at the Higher School of Economics in Moscow and head of the Institute for Industrial and Market Studies on recent tendecies. Yakovlev, a leading Russian economist, has a deepknowledge of the transformation of Russian enterprise throughout the post-Soviet time. In this interview, he puts the microeconomic perspective within a broad political economic context and evaluates the policy choices made by Russia’s political elites after the Arab Spring in 2011. Although he is quite pessimistic about Russia’s prospects, Yakovlev suggests that the new geopolitical situation and sanctions have created promising opportunities for the Russian economy. However, these opportunities can be used only if Russian elites achieve a new consensus regarding redistribution of economic rent.

    The state, informal networks, and financial market regulation in post-Soviet Russia, 1990-20082015In: The Soviet and Post-Soviet Review, ISSN 1075-1262, E-ISSN 1876-3324, Vol. 42, no 1, p. 5-38Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The article examines how informal networks inside the Russian state influenced the formation and further development of the country' s financial markets during the 1990s and 2000s. The main argument is that the activities of these networks made it difficult to implement any coherent state regulation policy in the field. At the same time, rivalry between competing informal networks and different organizations contributed to institutional development and some improvements. The result was a dualist institutional structure of the Russian speculative financial markets that reproduced itself throughout the period in question. The study is based on in-depth interviews conducted at Moscow-based financial institutions.

    The 2014–15 Financial Crisis in Russia and the Foundations of Weak Monetary Power Autonomy in the International Political Economy2019In: New Political Economy, ISSN 1356-3467, E-ISSN 1469-9923Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article contributes to international political economy debates about the monetary power autonomy (MPA) of emerging market and developing countries (EMDs). The 2014–15 Russian financial crisis is used as a case study to explore why an accumulation of large international reserves does not provide protection against currency crises and macroeconomic adjustments in EMDs. The analysis centres on the interplay between two dimensions of MPA: the Power to Delay and the Power to Deflect adjustment costs. Two structural factors condition Russia’s low MPA. First, the country’s subordinated integration in global financial markets increases its financial vulnerability. The composition of external assets and liabilities, combined with cross-border capital flows, restrict the use of international reserves to delay currency crises. Second, the choice of a particular macroeconomic policy regime embraced the financialisation of the–mainly state-owned–Russian banking sector, thus making it difficult to transform liquidity inflows into credits for enterprises. Russia’s main comparative advantage, hydrocarbon export revenues, is not exploited. The type of economy created due to the post-Communist transition means that provided ‘excessive’ liquidity remains in the financial system and is channelled into currency arbitrage. This factor increases exchange rate vulnerability and undermines Russia’s MPA.

    The state capture of Russian non-bank financial institutions and markets after the 2008 crisis2016In: Competition & change, ISSN 1024-5294, E-ISSN 1477-2221, Vol. 20, no 1, p. 3-20Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article explores the expansion of the Russian state into financial markets after the 2008 global financial crisis. The main argument is that the Russian state has been unable to pursue its own developmental agenda in the sector despite increased regulation and state takeovers. While independent private market participants were pushed aside by state-controlled financial intermediaries, the state failed to follow its own policy strategy towards establishing an international financial centre in Moscow. Instead, the Russian financial market institutions were rendered into a vehicle for inter-bank lending under control of the Central Bank of Russia. Data from Russian stock market and corporate bond market trading highlights the trend. The study discusses the role played by informal power networks in redistribution of state-controlled resources and financial flows, and how this factor influenced the state regulation of financial markets in Russia.
