Global Fields and Economic Theory: The Impact of German Scholarship on Russian Political Economy in the Eighteenth and Nineteenth Century

  • Leonid Shirokorad
Chapter

Abstract

This chapter explores twin sources of Russian economics: the Russian state and foreign fields of (primarily German) actors and discourse. Russian “economics” ended up caught in between these two forces that sometimes were complementary, and sometimes contradictory: German scholars and institutions (universities) offered the human capital the Russian state desperately needed, yet that knowledge could threaten the status quo on which the Russian state depended, from serfdom to autocracy. The story in this chapter is that the field of economics in Russia—a combination of discourse, institutions, and professional roles and identity—is a story of two other fields (European, and especially German, economics and the Russian state) whose overlap was fraught with tension.
