Dialectics of Economic and Legal Transformations in Russia
Purpose: The article is devoted to the problem of the relationship and interdependence of economic and legal transformations. Based on an analysis of the last 160 years of Russia's development, the authors have tried to show the failure of providing unilateral reforms, either economic or political. Design/Methodology/Approach: The mutual influence of economic and political processes has been revealed. Particular attention is paid to the problem of state security in the context of reform processes. The research is based on the method of systems analysis, as well as dialectical, theoretical, legal, and historical methods. Findings: The dead-end nature of totalitarian development is also shown as well as the problem shifting from it. The authors concluded that in the conditions of an underdeveloped civil society in Russia, economic and legal reforms should be simultaneous and sequential, while the state authorities are responsible for ensuring internal security. Practical Implications: It is necessary to prevent interference in the transformative processes of both radical and ultra-radical (left) elements. Both in the past and in the present a lot depends on the personality of the leader in Russia and on the strength of the power structures, exactly the security service. Originality/Value: The transition from totalitarian development to post-totalitarian development is accompanied by large-scale economic and political reforms. Moreover, two options are possible: the revolutionary, observed in Europe, and the reform of histories (China and Vietnam), the difference between which lies in the elimination or preservation of the dictatorship of the Communist Party.
