Professors and Bankers: Russia’s State Bank Charters of 1860 and 1894, Economic Expertise and Public Opinion

Humanities. HUM. Basic Research Programme, 2015. No. WP BRP 116/HUM/2015 .
The paper considers the role of public opinion and economic expertise in planning and realization of two important Russia’s financial reforms of the nineteenth century: the creation of the State Bank in 1860 and its reform in 1894. It aims at expanding the limits of institutional history and complimenting it with the analysis of ideological and political context. The focus on the images of «ideal» economic development that existed in public imagination as well as in expert opinion enables to look at the financial policy of the 1860s-1890s from a new prospective.
