David Lane on What Next for Russia?

David Lane discusses the impact of transformation on the post-socialist countries and distinguishes between positive and negative consequences. He outlines the challenges facing Russia and examines the different components of the political and economic elites, as well as their preferences for political change. Finally, he considers the possibility of a movement to socialism.

He is also a former Vice-Chair of the SCRSS. He is currently studying unemployment in Ukraine, Russia and China.

    I really enjoyed this lecture. I wish it had been longer. I am left a little puzzled as to how David collects and analyses his data - especially as Russia is such a large country. I am also surprised he did not refer to the impact of television, and the internet. This later, especially Social Media is having a significant effect - and is affecting the dynamics of society, and a fortiori the politics and sociali structures.
    I would also be grateful for references to explore the avenues he opened up.
