Политическая конкуренция = конкуренции в бизнесе?

Please find below a short comment from me that I send to the readers. It all began when some people at an economic theory conference asked me to tell them about the status quo in the modern competition in politics. The question is nothing new and the reasons why it is asked are understandable enough. But given the venue where it was asked, it was naturally extended and finally looked like: If we take the concepts of healthy business competition and healthy competition in politics, can we establish a link between the two-' Frankly, I never thought about that. The reason for that is the fact that the legal regulation of the antimonopoly measures and the political pluralism policies regulation are the subject matters of two quite different specializations in the legal profession. Nevertheless, I made a mental note about the problem identified to me, and I started making real notes on paper on matters related to the theme. Then it suddenly turned out the idea to discuss the problem was in the air and the modern economic conditions really produced the question. Can we put an equality mark between the competition in politics and business competition- Is it true that political monopolies inevitably bring about more unhealthy competitive business practicesThe questions seem to be as pressing as the usual Russian questions Who is to blame- and What should be done- and the question of who would rule the country in the future. I understand that the problem cannot be examined from the point of view of a legal professional only as the problem is only partially legal. That is why I suggest a multidisciplinary discussion should be opened. As a specialist in the constitutional law that examines the legal regulation of the state power, I shall try and examine the problem from a legal specialist's point of view.
