What Went Wrong? The reasons for the Failure of Stabilization in Russia in 1992


  • Marek Dabrowski
  • Jacek Rostowski


In this paper we examine four main kinds of reason for Gaidar's team failure in Russia: 1) problems arising from the process of designing the programme; 2) failures of implementation; 3) problems arising from Russia's economic structure; 4) problems arising from Russia's political structure.
