Стратегии Модернизации, Институты И Коалиции
[Strategies of Modernization, Institutions and Coalitions]



The article considers alternative variants of strategy formation: "modernization from above" and an approach based on the interaction of "coalitions of interests". To use the advantages of both approaches, it is suggested that a system of interactive control of growth be designed. It should be founded on procedures of compromise making and concerted efforts of the state and "coalitions of actions" such as business and consumers’ associations and trade unions that are already partially organized in Russia. The most important goal of the system is to work out mutually consistent plans of development for different economy sectors. At the first stage, the plans have to ensure fast economic growth by adaptation of western methods and technologies and gradual improvement of institutions as well. These conclusions follow from the analysis of policies of "economic miracle" countries and the theory of reform recommendations.
