Firms in Imperial Russia faced institutional barriers to firm formation and a relatively small financial sector, yet Russian industry grew rapidly around the turn of the twentieth century. This talk presents results from several studies using newly collected firm-level and corporation-level data from the Russian Empire that reconcile the dynamism of the Russian industrial economy with remaining obstacles, thus permitting a more nuanced assessment of economic development under the Tsars.
