Working paper

Может ли российский бизнес ограничить "силовое давление" со стороны государства

Яковлев А. А., Казун А. П., Соболев А. С.
In their most recent works, North and his co-authors (North, Wallis, Weingast, 2009) (North, Wallis, Webb, Weingast, 2012) name the formation of organizations capable of effectively restricting violence in society as a necessary condition for transfer from developing societies to sustainable economic growth societies. However, the mechanisms of emergence and conditions for the operation of such organizations in contemporary developing countries remain unclear. We shall follow the logic of formation of such organizations using the case study of collective actions of the Russian business community aimed at restricting “state violence” against business. We shall try to identify the conditions leading to a shift in the choice of strategies from attempts of informal agreements with extorters controlling means of coercion to cooperation of businessmen and trace further evolution of organized forms of collective actions. Finally, we shall assess to what extent the created organizations can be effi cient and self-supporting in the long term.
