Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2007 im Fachbereich BWL - Wirtschaftspolitik, Note: 2,3, Universität Hamburg (Department Wirtschaftswissenschaften), Veranstaltung: Aktuelle Probleme der russischen Wirtschaftspolitik, 29 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Nach dem Zusammenbruch der sozialistischen Planwirtschaft 1991 bewegt sich die Beziehung vom Staat zur Wirtschaft in Russland zwischen zwei Extremen. Zum einen lässt sich in den 1990er Jahren, in der Jelzinära , bis hin zum Ende des Jahres 2003, in etwa das Ende Putins erster Amtszeit, eine Dominanz der Wirtschaft, bzw. einzelner Wirtschaftseliten, den so genannten Oligarchen, über den Staat, feststellen (siehe Anhang 1). Sowohl die föderalen als auch die regionalen Behörden waren unter der Kontrolle oligarchischer Finanzmittel (vgl. Yakovlev 2006, 1033). Diese Form der Beziehung zwischen Staat und Wirtschaft lässt sich als „State Capture“, als „Herrschaft der Wirtschaft über den Staat“, beschreiben. Seit dem Beginn Putins zweiter Amtszeit im März 2004 scheint eine Verlagerung dieser Dominanz zum Staat über die Wirtschaft stattzufinden. Dieses Phänomen bezeichnet Yakovlev (2006, 1048) als „Business Capture“, bzw. als „Herrschaft des Staates über die Wirtschaft“. Im Folgenden soll erarbeitet werden, wie sich in Russland die Beziehung zwischen Staat und Wirtschaft entwickelte. Es werden Annahmen über Putins Absichten und seinen politischen Kurs in Bezug auf das Verhältnis zwischen Staat und Wirtschaft herausgearbeitet. Die Gewichtung hierbei liegt insbesondere auf der Beziehung zwischen der Regierung und den wirtschaftlich sowie politisch sehr einflussreichen Oligarchen. „Die zentrale Frage ist, ob nach der „gelenkten Demokratie“, die in wesentlichen Zügen bereits während der ersten Amtsperiode Putins von 2000 bis 2004 etabliert wurde, in der zweiten Amtszeit nun auch die Schaffung einer „gelenkten Wirtschaft“ folgen soll“ (Pleines 2005a, 6). In Kapitel zwei werden zunächst die Begriffe „State Capture“ und „Business Capture“ erklärt. Im Anschluss folgt in Kapitel drei eine kurze Darstellung, inwiefern „State Capture“ im Russland der 1990er, unter Jelzins Regierung, stattgefunden hat. In Kapitel vier wird herausgearbeitet, wie es zum so genannten „Business Capture“ unter Putin kam, um dann in der Schlussbemerkung Vermutungen darüber anzustellen, was Putin eigentlich mit seiner Politik bezweckt.

The Man Without a Face is the chilling account of how a small-minded, low-level KGB operative came to control the world's largest country and, in an astonishingly short time, destroyed years of progress, making Russia once more a threat to her own people and to the world. Handpicked in 1999 by the 'Family' surrounding an ailing and increasingly unpopular Boris Yeltsin, Vladimir Putin, with very little governmental or administrative experience beyond having served as deputy mayor of St Petersburg, seemed like the perfect choice in the eyes of an oligarchy bent on moulding the president's successor to its own designs. Suddenly the boy who had scrapped his way through post-war Leningrad schoolyards, dreaming of ruling the world, was a public figure, and his popularity soared. Russia and an infatuated West were determined to see the progressive leader of their dreams, even as with ruthless efficiency Putin dismantled the country's media, wrested control and wealth from the country's burgeoning business class, and decimated the fragile mechanisms of democracy. Within a few brief years, virtually every obstacle to his unbridled control was removed and every opposing voice silenced, with political rivals and critics driven into exile or to the grave. As a journalist living in Moscow, Masha Gessen experienced this history firsthand, and for The Man Without a Face she has drawn on information and sources no other writer has tapped. Her horrifying and spellbinding account of how this 'faceless' man manoeuvred his way into absolute - and absolutely corrupt - power will stand as a classic of narrative non-fiction.

Securitising Russia shows the impact of twenty-first-century security concerns on the way Russia is ruled. It demonstrates how President Putin has wrestled with terrorism, immigration, media freedom, religious pluralism, and economic globalism, and argues that fears of a return to old-style authoritarianism oversimplify the complex context of contemporary Russia. The book focuses on the internal security issues common to many states in the early twenty-first-century, and places them in the particular context of Russia. Detailed analysis of the place of security in Russia's political discourse and policy-making reveals nuances often missing from overarching assessments of Russia today. To characterise the Putin regime as the 'KGB-resurgent' is to miss vital continuities, contexts, and on-going political conflicts which make up the contemporary Russian scene. Securitising Russia draws together current debates about whether Russia is a 'normal' country developing its own democratic and market structures, or a nascent authoritarian regime returning to the past.

Vladimir Putin and Russia Imperial Revival

Discerning the early stages of the rebirth of a new Russian empire from the ashes of the Soviet Union, Vladimir Putin and Russia?s Imperial Revival argues that Russia?s recent overtly aggressive actions and foreign policy doctrines have signaled a renewal of the Cold War. At the least, Russia?s actions represent the potential for renewal. This book explains these developments in a historical context.The book begins by describing Russia?s initial policy of rapprochement after the collapse of the Soviet Union and its development into a foreign policy of threatened or actual armed aggression. It identifies today?s Russia as a nation determined to re-establish itself as a political and military force. As a prominent figure in the development and continuation of its current foreign policy, Vladimir Putin plays a central role in the topics covered.Previous literature often treats Putin as an individual phenomenon examining his connections to corruption or the secret police, but here David E. McNabb examines him as the latest in a long history of Russian despots who followed similar expansionist policies. He details some of the tactics Putin uses to instill fear and dominate political policies of republics newly independent from Russia. These tactics include the use of energy as a weapon, cyber terrorism, and military support for ethnic Russian separatists in other sovereign nations, most recently exemplified by Russia?s annexation of Crimea from Ukraine via armed invasion.In an attempt to demystify Russia?s re-emergence as an international political force, Vladimir Putin and Russia?s Imperial Revival grounds its analyses in history. It explores as far back as the establishment of the first Russian empire, and regards Putin as a leader determined to establish a fifth imperial incarnation. It provides a nuanced understanding of how Russia arrived at its current position through recent and distant internal and international events.
