Methods/Statistical Analysis: The research of the specifics of multiplier and accelerator effects of investments in the Russian economy is based on the historical and genetic approach.

Findings: The authors have built a regression model which reflects both: Changes occurred in the investment mechanism in the 1990s and their impact on the cumulative process in the post-Soviet economy. The causes and negative consequences of low investment activity in Russia have been identified. The well-founded conclusion has been made about the futility and harmfulness of raw materials export model for the further development of the country due to its inability to utilize the potential of the stimulating effect of the “cumulative demand” (consumer and investment one) factor.
