Понять неформальное (О книге В. Л. Тамбовцева "Экономическая теория неформальных институтов")

Вопросы экономики. 2015. № 6. С. 151-157.
The review considered the first in the history of Russian economic thought an attempt to give a detailed analysis of informal institutions (IF). It is recognized that in general it was successful: the reader got acquainted with the original classification of institutions (including informal) and their genesis. The reviewer thinks that the best achievement of the author is his interdisciplinary approach to the study of problems and, moreover, his shift in emphasis on the achievements of social psychology because the model of human behavior in the economic mainstream is rather primitive. The work makes evident that namely this model limits the ability of economists to analyze IF. The reviewer also noted correctness of the author when he points to the need for economists in the analysis of the IF genesis to highlight the uncertainty and reject economic determinism. The reviewer concludes that further thoughtful conversation about IF is hard to imagine without reference to this book.
