New book! The Russian Economy under Putin

What has been going on in the Russian economy under President Putin? And what may the future look like given the external environment, internal challenges and reform processes? New book “The Russian Economy under Putin” is edited by Torbjörn Becker, Director at SITE, and Susanne Oxenstierna, Deputy Research Director at the Swedish Defence Research Institute (FOI).

The book presents a comprehensive view of the state of the Russian economy under President Putin. It considers the extent of Russia’s integration in the world economy, where Russia’s exports of oil and gas are a key factor, discusses Russia’s internal challenges, including changing demographics, declining government revenue, the need to counter over-reliance on the oil and gas sector and the consequences of high military spending, and assesses the prospects for economic reform, highlighting especially the power struggles between different vested interests. Overall, the book provides a basis for understanding what has been going on in the Russian economy under President Putin and what the future may look like given the external environment, internal challenges and reform processes.

The book is published by Routledge. It is available as hardback and e-book, order your copy here.
