INFORMAL ENTREPRENEURSHIP AND INFORMAL ENTREPRENEURIAL ACTIVITY IN RUSSIA

P. 119-150.

The chapter deals with the ambiguities of informal entrepreneurial activity and its specific contextual framing under transition in Russia as an example of a fragile mid-income economy. It stresses the transition-specific reasons of its sustainability, contrary to the most current literature explaining it as a the Soviet heritage etc. (the 'path dependence' argument). The author uses the results of the two first waves of the own longitudinal survey of 13 Muscovite entrepreneurs and start-ups (2013-2014). The paper contains some policy recommendations.
