The Gaidar Institute published a book “Economic policy in Russia. Turbulent decade 2008-2018”dedicated to the memory of Egor T. Gaidar.
This book proposed to readers is the fourth of a series of fundamental monographs published by the Gaidar Institute for Economic Policy examining the entire almost 30-year period of the post-communist development of the Russian economy. The previous three volumes prepared under the guidance and with direct involvement of Egor T.Gaidar were collectively called “Economics of Transition” and published in 1998, 2003 and 2008.  This book considers a period that can be characterized by two key concepts: the global crisis and slowdown of economic development.
