  Putin‘s elite and internal policy (Part II)

Vadim Volovoj, Doctor in Political Sciences
2006 05 24

In view of the above ideas of V.Putin, and according to the article of A.Illarionov (www.kommersant.ru/doc.html?docId=642781) on “management” of economic issues in Russia, we could have a very simple picture of the economic policy vision of the current president of Russia:…

  • State control of strategic economy sectors: direct and indirect via the controlling interest. Those who do not obey, are put into jail or sell their actives.
  Putin's elite and internal policy (Part I)

Vadim Volovoj, Doctor in Political Sciences
2006 05 23

In his article “Do not hurry to criticize Putin” (The Financial Times, Great Britain), a well known political scientist Anatoly Liven writes, that Putin, while “establishing” Russia, tries to copy the experience of East Asia (China, Southern Korea, Taiwan), where a semi-authoritarian approach towards the development of capitalism, i.e. the dominant role of the state gave exceptionally good results. 

According to the political scientist, it seems that Mr.Putin is trying to establish the state of Russia, in which the principle role would be played by administrative, security and economic elites, similarly as in eastern Asia and to certain extent in Turkey with the dominant military, and in France (not incidentally General De Goll is one of the favorite political actors of V.V.Putin).
