In 1990, Ronald Logan gave a two-day seminar on the PROUT model of development to leading progressive intellectuals of the Russian Far East. Those attending saw in PROUT what they had been seeking: a coherent theory of development that stressed regional autonomy, cooperative enterprise, and economic democracy. This led to an invitation by the Governor of Khabarovsk Krai for the PROUT Institute to participate in a competition among leading economic institutes of the region to conceptualize a vision for the economic future of Khabarovsk Krai. Logan and Carla Dickstein, then professor of economics at West Virginia University, collaborated on the drafting of this PROUT Institute report.
