Evolution of the Commercial Banking System in Russia
Association for Evolutionary Economics at Allied Social Sciences Association conference. January 4-6, 2013. San Diego, CA, the United States of America
Abstract: We undertook an institutional analysis of commercial banks in Russia. After the failed experiment with private financial intermediation in the 1990s Russia migrated towards a banking system consisting of three, rather than two, tiers and featuring core institutions controlled by the state directly or indirectly. This evolution is consistent with this country’s historical pattern of financial intermediation. It is also in line with recent trends in the real sector of the economy where public ownership has rebound over the past decade. The core state-controlled banks have evolved into hybrid institutions performing two various sets of functions, those of a regular commercial bank and a policy bank. We found a similar evolution in China but not in transition economies of Central Europe. Institutional matrix theory suggests that in non-market economies centralized finance and credit allocation is the dominant institutional form while private banking activity is a complementary one.Keywords: Russia; banks; state; institutions; institutional matrix

New systemic institutional approach for comparative political and economic analysis
Presentation. Union for Radical Political Economy at Allied Social Sciences Association conference. January 4-6, 2013. San Diego, CA, the United States of America
An idea that modern economics as necessarily based on market capitalism continues to dominate in scientific-scholarly discourse. The objective of this presentation is to present an Institutional Matrix Theory, or X- and Y-theory as an alternative systemic institutional approach to economic and political development. It puts forward some new arguments to explain ‘grassroots resistance’ to the deep marketization in many societies and answers the question “why capitalism triumphs in the West and fails everywhere else”.Keywords: systemic institutional approach, comparative analysis
