   Shevtsova I. K. We Will Help Local Authorities Local Authorities Will Help Us: Patron-client Relations and Control under Private Firms
    In order to control private business in socially significant spheres local authorities often prefer using the strategy of capture. However, even under favorable conditions these strategies are not always implemented. Author argues that local authorities tend to refuse of exploiting the power strategies when desired control under private firms can be achieved by more mutually beneficial and less costly patron-client relations. The research is based on 14 interviews with businessmen (managers and owners), working in Perms housing service sphere. Temporal limits of the data collection are Spring 2013 Fall 2014.
   Key words: control under private firms; patron-client relations; patronage; local authorities.
