The Vanishing Barter Economy in Russia: A Test of the Virtual Economy Hypothesis? Reply to Barry Ickes
This paper is a reply to Barry Ickes' critique of my paper â€œTrust versus Illusion: What is Driving Demonetization in Russia?â€ in which I show that the data reject Barry Ickes' Virtual Economy explanation of barter in Russia in favor of an institutional explanation based on the lack of trust.
