Abstract: Drawing on a unique set of surveys, this article explores the question of whether Russia s post-communist business associations are generally antithetical to or supportive of the broad objectives of economic restructuring.Contrary to the most widely cited analysis as to the purposes of collective action in the business community, the survey evidence demonstrates that association members have embraced market-adapting behaviors at greater rates than non-members.The responses of both firms and associations, moreover, suggest that the associations themselves are, at least in part, directly responsible.These findings point to the conclusion that in contemporary Russia the net returns to collective action in support of market development are high relative to those for purposes that are less benign.
