This paper evaluates the raw material dependence of two export-oriented oil and gas extracting countries. We find evidence of presence of the Dutch disease in both countries and of the resource curse in Russia. Reduction of volumes of crude oil and natural gas production and exports, compensated by the growth of value added in other kinds of economic activity, suggests that Norway is gradually overcoming the Dutch disease by means of expanded reproduction of human capital. On the other hand, extraction of hydrocarbons may remain a driver of the Russian economic growth.

Artykuł ocenia zależność od surowca dwóch orientowanych na eksport krajów wydobywających ropy naftowy i gaz. Znaleźliśmy świadectwo obecności Holenderskiej choroby w obu krajach i przekleństwa zasobów w Rosji. Zmniejszenie wielkości produkcji i eksportu ropy naftowej i gazu ziemnego, skompensowane wzrostem wartości dodanej w innych rodzajach gospodarczej działalności, wskazuje na to, że Norwegia stopniowo przezwycięża Holenderską chorobę za pomocą rozszerzonej reprodukcji kapitału ludzkiego. Z drugiej strony, wydobywanie węglowodorów może pozostać koło napędowe rozwoju rosyjskiej gospodarki.
