Several Aspects of Research on the Informal Economy in Russia
AbstractThe study of the informal economy, in which there is growing interest in the Russian scientific literature, is impossible without defining the very concept of "informal economy." T. Shanin, who introduced into scientific parlance the concept "expolar form" as analogous to the concept "informal forms," identifies one of the fundamental directions of research on the informal economy, but specifically the study of "socioeconomic forms that are neither market-capitalist, nor state-planned, nor a simple combination of both. Such expolar economic forms were scornfully examined within the framework of dominant theoretical stereotypes as marginal and transitory. We are becoming more and more convinced of the nonmarginality of such forms and their growing diffusion and significance are clearly no mistake or misunderstanding.">sup>1>/sup>
