HSE Seminar on Political Economy: Olga Valisyeva (Economics Research Institute, Far East RAS) about the effect of elite fragmentation in autocracies on the influence of resource abundance on the economic growth

Olga Valisyeva used the political variation across sub-national regions of the Russian Federation under Vladimir Putin to understand how differences in the extent of elite fragmentation in autocracies affects the influence of resource abundance on the economic growth in the short run.

Anastasia Burkovskaya introduced a model of electoral choice that allows for derivation of joint distribution of turnout and voter share from unobservable joint distribution of costs of voting and preferences over candidates. Under a set of mild assumptions, she showed non-parametric identification of joint distribution of costs of voting and preferences over candidates from observable data on single elections/referendum.

Thus, media freedom serves as an ex ante protection for such a dictator.
