Что изменил Закон о торговле: количественный анализ
The paper estimates the first consequences of the new Trade Law aimed at restoring a «balance of market power» in retailer-supplier relationships. Empirical data were collected in November-December 2010 from the grocery sector and home electronic appliances sector. 512 filled questionnaires were received from managers of retail chains and their suppliers in five Russia’s cities. The author argues that proclaimed goals of the Trade Law have not been achieved. Contract relationships have not changed for three quarters of retailers and suppliers. There are no significant effects on conditions of market entry, frequency of vertical restraints, and general estimations of the level of contract requirements.
