More on the Russian Retail Trade Law

Josh Wright —  2 February 2010

I’ve published (in Russian) an op-ed in Vedomosti, a Russian newspaper that is a joint project of the Financial Times and the Wall Street Journal.   It is based, at least in part, on this blog post.  The op-ed focuses on the US experience over the last decade in evaluating shelf space contracts and the likely negative effects of the Russian law’s restrictions on shelf space contracts and retail size.  I am indebted to Vadim Novikov of the Moscow Higher School of Economics for translating.  For TOTM readers interested in the English version — I will post it here shortly.
