L’introduction de l’impôt sur le revenu en Russie impériale : la genèse et l’élaboration d’une réforme inachevée
The Tsar Alexander II undertook to dismantle the archaic poll tax and thus, he opened the way for the modernization of the Russian tax system. Between the second half of the nineteenth century and the beginning of the twentieth century, a number of new taxes on the property was created. However, several projects aimed at establishing an income tax in Russia generated a lot of debates in the governmental circles, but they were dismissed for different reasons, which we will discuss hereafter. Therefore, the Revolution of 1905 and the First World War would be needed for the realization of this reform, which was promulgated on 6 April 1916. While the government was preparing to implement an innovative tax, which was based on the principles and procedures that break with the practices of the old regime, the Russian state and society were upset by the events of 1917.
Cet article se propose de retracer l’invention de l’impôt sur le revenu en Russie impériale. En procédant au démantèlement de l’archaïque système de capitation, le tsar Alexandre II ouvrit la voie à la modernisation de la fiscalité impériale, qui s’étala jusqu’au début du XXe siècle. Durant cette période, plusieurs projets en vue d’introduire un impôt sur le revenu en Russie virent le jour, en suscitant de vifs débats au sein des milieux libéraux ; mais tous furent abandonnés pour une convergence de différentes raisons que nous allons préciser. Ainsi, il fallut attendre la Révolution de 1905 et la Première guerre mondiale pour voir se concrétiser cette réforme, qui fut promulguée par la loi du 6 avril 1916. Alors que le gouvernement s’apprêtait à implanter cet impôt novateur, les événements de 1917 vinrent bouleverser l’État et la société russes.

The paper examines the structure, governance, and balance sheets of state-controlled banks in Russia, which accounted for over 55 percent of the total assets in the country's banking system in early 2012. The author offers a credible estimate of the size of the country's state banking sector by including banks that are indirectly owned by public organizations. Contrary to some predictions based on the theoretical literature on economic transition, he explains the relatively high profitability and efficiency of Russian state-controlled banks by pointing to their competitive position in such functions as acquisition and disposal of assets on behalf of the government. Also suggested in the paper is a different way of looking at market concentration in Russia (by consolidating the market shares of core state-controlled banks), which produces a picture of a more concentrated market than officially reported. Lastly, one of the author's interesting conclusions is that China provides a better benchmark than the formerly centrally planned economies of Central and Eastern Europe by which to assess the viability of state ownership of banks in Russia and to evaluate the country's banking sector.
