Overview

Kremlin Capitalism describes Russia's massive economic transformation. It provides a wealth of data and analyses not previously available. The authors articulate the political and economic goals of Russian privatization, examine the current ownership of the largest enterprises in Russia, and chart the challenges of corporate governance and restructuring in Russia's new private corporations. Kremlin Capitalism is based on the only continuous study of Russian privatization throughout the Russian Federation from 1992 to the present. The authors tracked down the story of the transition in fifty of Russia's eighty-nine provinces, updating their findings after the June 1996 election. The result is an up-to-the-minute report of the largest property transfer in history and an analysis of one of this century's most significant economic transformations. The volume also characterizes the position of workers in terms of unemployment, wages, union power, and their changing role as employee shareholders.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Blasi The New Owners, HarperBusiness, 1992. reprint, an economics professor and adviser to the Russian government, and his coauthors describe the successes of the privatization efforts based on the "Russian national survey" of large Russian businesses, gathered from 1992 to 1996. The detailed description is excellent, but there is little about other Russian business issues that would interest general readers for whom, the authors state, this book is intended; they would be better served by Anders Aslund's How Russia Became a Market Economy Brookings Institution, 1995. As an advocate of the present privatization course, Blasi avoids criticisms, unlike Marshall Goldman in his Lost Opportunity LJ 11/15/94. Blasi has a similar report on the Internet . Recommended only for collections with a focus on privatization issues.Michael Neubert, Library of Congress, Washington, D.C.
From the Publisher
"The first comprehensive and in-depth study on the restructuring of Russian enterprises. . . . Blasi and his colleagues had uniquely privileged access to the unfolding story in Moscow and the critical evidence on the ground in Russia's regions. They have seized this opportunity and written a fascinating book that describes the battle between workers, managers, organized crime, the old Soviet bureaucracy, financial-industrial groups, citizens, entrepreneurs, banks, and foreign investors as they compete for their vested interests while trying to detach themselves from the communist past. For many years to come, the book is certain to remain of great value to a broad spectrum of serious students of Russia and enterprise restructuring processes in general."—Choice

"A remarkably well informed account of the Russian privatization program during its early years. . . . The authors present a balanced, nuanced, and realistic assessment of the Russian experience. . . . A valuable book for those interested in the early stages of Russian economic transition, and for those who seek a deeper understanding of the current dilemma."—The Russian Review
