Russia after the Global Economic Crisis

edited by Anders Åslund ,
Sergei Guriev and
Andrew Kuchins

"These excellent essays by major Russian and Western scholars on Russia's key political and economic developments are vital reading for anybody who wants to understand Russia's current dilemma."

Carl Bildt, minister for foreign affairs of Sweden

"A delicate subject treated with genuine strategic sobriety—Russia after the Global Economic Crisis is deserving of serious reflection."

Zbigniew Brzezinski, former US national security adviser

"The book is a great example of a partnership between Russian and American experts. It provides a comprehensive and an independent view on Russia's mid-term and long-term challenges. While the book's conclusions are often controversial, it is a must read for everybody interested in the future of Russia."

Arkady Dvorkovich, aide to the President of the Russian Federation

"Russia after the Global Financial Crisis, a brilliant sequel to the highly acclaimed The Russia Balance Sheet, first cogently assesses Russia's current structural and policy shortcomings brought into sharp focus by the economic crisis and then astutely sets forth tough choices Russia must make to avoid future stagnation and alienation."

Carla A. Hills, chair and CEO, Hills & Company


Russia after the Global Economic Crisis examines this important country after the financial crisis of 2007–09. The second book from The Russia Balance Sheet Project, a collaboration of two of the world's preeminent research institutions, the Peterson Institute for International Economics and the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), not only assesses Russia's international and domestic policy challenges but also provides an all-encompassing review of this important country's foreign and domestic issues. The authors consider foreign policy, Russia and it neighbors, climate change, Russia's role in the world, domestic politics, and corruption.
