The Re-Emerging Role of the State in Contemporary Russia
I examine ownership structure of Russian firms during the 1998–2006 period, where a greater emphasis is placed on motivations behind increased government ownership in the latter years, when oligarchs’ opportunistic influence on the firm diminished as state ownership correspondingly increased. As this phenomenon is also correlated with improved corporate growth during the period, I argue that state participation in corporate governance acted as an effective substitute mechanism to constrain wealth-tunnelling behaviour of corporate insiders and local bureaucrats in a country defined by a weak property rights system.
