Overview

Fourteen papers, presented by Oleinik (Memorial U. of Newfoundland, Canada), detail recent theoretical developments in institutional economics and apply institutional economic theory to the recent transition experiences of Russian capitalism. The theoretical papers discuss such issues as values, coordination, and rationality and the economy of conventions; transaction cost economics, the theory of optimal contract, the theory of organizations, and institutionalism within economic history. The other chapters examine post-Soviet network capitalism, the foundations of the Russian market, post-Soviet privatization in light of the Coase theorem, unresolved transaction and governance cost issues in Russian privatization, institutional analysis of the Russian state, methods for analyzing the extralegal economy, and business groups in Russian industries.
