Влияние силовых групп интересов на производительность экономики в недемократических режимах
The article considers the relationship between the importance of power interest groups in undemocratic regimes and productivity of economy. The authors propose an original theoretical model using the achievements of the theory of securitization in order to trace the mechanism of the influence of the "Siloviki" on the economic development of states in the absence of institutional and social restrictions. Based on the theoretical model, a quantitative index of the influence of the "siloviki" is proposed, combining a set of institutional and political variables. A set of statistical methods is used to identify the relationships between the index of the siloviki’s influence and economic development: panel regressions with fixed effects and discontinuous regressions. The models’ results show a stable negative impact of power interest groups on productivity of economy.
