Anthropology of Debt in Post-Soviet Economies
Keywords:debt regimes, debt relations, post-Soviet economy, power relations
This introduction to the special issue outlines important anthropological insights into debt relations and relations of indebtedness drawing on my own research on post-Soviet economies as well as on the contributions to this special issue. This special issue deals with post-socialist and post-Soviet economies that embarked on similar economic paths after the collapse of the communist regime.
