Editorial Reviews

Fischer, an economist who advises Russian economist ministers on behalf of the German government, presents a thorough study aimed at policy-makers, academics, and donor countries who, in his words, "are slowly understanding that the only sustainable solution for overcoming Russia's persistent crisis hinges on industrial recovery. For this, Russia's manufacturing sector needs substantial capital and investments...."
