Putinomics: The Price of Power in Russia

  • May 10, 2017

Putin’s government is usually associated with incompetence and corruption. Yet, the Kremlin has managed to deploy power so ruthlessly at home and abroad in part because of its ability to muster economic resources. Miller traces the economic policies that underwrite Russia’s expansive foreign policy and Putin’s continued control over  the country’s political system.

Joining us to discuss Putinomics is Chris Miller. Miller is a Fellow at FPRI’s Eurasia Program where he serves as the editor of the Baltic Bulletin. He is also the Associate Director of the Brady-Johnson Program in Grand Strategy at Yale University. His is the author of  The Struggle to Save the Soviet Economy: Mikhail Gorbachev and the Collapse of the USSR
