About the Book
In only a few short years, the largest communist nation in the world, the USSR, dissolved into modern-day Russia. What would appear to be the fastest developed federalist republic in history is, more realistically, a struggle between the generally ignored legal institutions and the shadow economy. The effects are most obvious in malfunctioning social institutions, misplacement of national resources, deepened poverty, and a lack of national security. The corrupt underground market in Russia is the norm—Russian youth and emerging entrepreneurs see lack of integrity as a fact of life.

From Shadow Economy to Shadow Society examines the impact and underlying causes of Russia’s shadow economy. The implications of shadowy patterns sweep across economic and governmental spheres. Hidden within cultural layers and economic practices, the disease of shadow consciousness is not restricted to any particular nation, race or gender. It infects and exacerbates socioeconomic problems increasingly being felt worldwide.

Economists Dr. Vladimir Biryukov and Alla Ratner investigate the effects the shadow economy has had on the Russian Federation in addition to calling for a greater public and institutional awareness and possible solutions to the problem. And, in so doing, From Shadow Economy to Shadow Society presents the reader with a unique glimpse into the hidden recesses of collective consciousness, layered and dispirited, as it spreads across cultural, territorial and generational boundaries.
