Oil and gas: a blessing for the few. Hydrocarbons and inequality within regions in Russia

Tullio Buccellato, Tomasz Mickiewicz

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Building on earlier work on regional inequality in Russia the article seeks to demonstrate that the regional oil and gas abundance is associated with high within-region inequality. It provides empirical evidence that hydrocarbons represent one of the leading determinants of an increased gap between rich and poor in the producing regions. The discussion focuses on a possible cluster of geographic, economic and political factors underlying the phenomenon.
