bneWebinar: Russia’s new virtual economy

Is Russia’s economy going to be cut off from the rest of the world and what would that look like?

bne IntelliNews’ editor-in-chief Ben Aris discussed the question with renowned economist and Russia scholar Barry Ickes, who is best known for coining “Russia’s virtual economy” to describe the 1990s economic barter system.

Prof Barry Ickes - head of the economics department at the Pennsylvania State University.

He is also a non-resident senior fellow with the Center on the United States and Europe at Brookings Institute and the financial director at The New Economic School in Moscow. He previously served as a chair on the board of directors of the National Council for Eurasian and East European Research.
