The Low Quality of National Governance and Unevenness in the Economic Competitiveness of Regions: The Case of Russia

Russian Politics. 2018. Vol. 3. No. 2. P. 196-215.
Busygina I., Филиппов М.

Strong institutions and good governance are instrumental for success in the global economy.

Poor governance can be offset with the country’s comparative advantages; however, such advantages are likely to be geographically concentrated. We argue that in present-day Russia weak institutions and low quality of national governance make most regions unable to compete in the global economy.
