The economic crisis of 2010s: the social and political origins and consequences

TERRA ECONOMICUS, , Vol. 13 (no. 2),
p. 46-56

On the basis of alternative macroeconomic estimations, the development of the Russian economy in the post-Soviet period is analyzed. It is argued that, if the existing economic policy remains unchanged, the economic crisis of 2013–2014 is expected to be deep and lasting, and would have farreaching social and political implications. The article contains an in-depth analysis of the moderate liberal course of action to change the route of the history of Russia, as well as the way of Russia’s modernization, revealing their advantages and disadvantages.
