The economic performance of the Russian economy is very different from the economic performance of other countries in Eastern Europe that have also undertaken market reforms. Yet real Russian gross domestic product (GDP) declined for eight years and stabilized for a period of time. Other countries such as Poland, for example, have benefited from continued high economic growth. This chapter explores oblast and federation intergovernmental fiscal relations as a possible reason as to why Russia lags behind in economic growth.
