The Surprising Success of the Kremlin’s Economic Strategy

13 April 2018 - 10:00am to 11:30am

Chatham House, London


Chris Miller, Assistant Professor of International History, Fletcher School, Tufts University



Russia’s economy is known more for corruption than for capable economic management. Yet, in his recent book, Putinomics: Power and Money in Resurgent Russia, Chris Miller argues that Putin’s economic strategy has, despite its well-known problems, been surprisingly successful. Russia’s economy has stabilized, inflation is at historic lows and the budget is nearly balanced. How has this happened? What principles have guided the Kremlin’s economic policies? To what extent does Putin’s economic strategy serve the interests of the Russian people? And will ‘Putinomics’ bring in this latest presidential term? 

Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
