City Size, Efficiency and Economic Growth

The paper discusses some basic theoretical and empirical arguments in the favour of developing large urban agglomerations in Russia. The claims of the superiority of large cities in productive efficiency and economic growth are tested on extensive statistical evidence and are not unambiguously confirmed. The author underscores the need to adjust regional policies so that medium and small cities could unleash their growth potential.

Urbanization Changes in Siberia: View Satellite

Based on nightlight and Landsat satellite images, we derived the urban built-up lands in Siberia and higher-resolution of urban built up areas for four major Siberian cities: Novosibirsk, Krasnoyarsk, Omsk, and Irkutsk. We found that while the region has experienced significant reductions in population, large administrative centers experienced a first decrease but then increase in population. We also derived urban air quality indicators and identified the major environmental issues facing these Siberia cities through expert interviews Novosibirsk, Krasnoyarsk, and Irkutsk. We also examine the co-evolving relationship between urban built-up area, urban population and economic development in Siberia for the period from 1992 to 2012.

Determinants of the Global Culinary Space

The author looks at the influence determinants of various national cuisines in the global culinary space. They are: the area of the country, its population, natural diversity, long-standing traditions of social inequality, diet taboos (if any) imposed by religion, ethical and moral reasons. A large number of examples illustrate how the specifics of national cuisine are attributable to historical forms of social inequality in different countries. Some attention is also paid to culinary-class disaggregation, when different classes of the same society focus on different national cuisines.

On the Asian Vector of Russia’s Development

In recent years, due to the shift in the gravity center of the world economy in the Asia-Pacific region, the share of Asian countries in Russia’s foreign trade has increased. However, the spatial structure of the Russian economy is not keeping pace with these changes. In order to harmonize the spatial and foreign trade structural changes that contribute to the growth of the efficiency of the Russian economy and its inclusion in the global division of labor, along with efforts to increase the production potential of the Far East, it is necessary to intensify the development of Siberia, using the potential of the Eurasian integration and the Economic belt of the Silk Road.

From which Country is foreign Direct Investment more Profitable for Russia?

The purpose of the study is to assess the efficiency of companies with direct foreign investments from different investor countries on the basis of calculating profitability indicators and evaluating technical efficiency. Based on an analysis of 4361 companies with  FDI the following was revealed. Over the past three years the profitability of companies with FDI (estimated by ROA and ROI) is falling to negative values. The effeciency of these companies depends on the investor country. The profitability of companies with FDI from Germany, the USA, France and other developed countries is much higher than those from China, Hungary, Turkey, and also offshore countries. In addition, investments from countries that imposed sanctions (Germany, the USА, Austria, the United Kingdom, Switzerland) got a higher evaluation of the effeciency of the DEA.

Resources Against Innovations. On the Limited Effect of the “Resource Multiplier” in Terms of the Innovation Development

The article considers the specificity of innovation process in the resource and non-resource sectors of the economy. We substantiate the thesis about a limitation of the “resource multiplier” using logical analysis and results of cognitive modeling. The conclusion is that the reliance on resources is unreliable in the evolutionary perspective in Russian conditions and therefore we should give priority to the development of the manufacturing sector as a foundation of economic growth and of implementation in innovation process.

On the Occasion of Centenary of the Decline of the West or the Downfall of the Occident

The paper discusses the key ideas of a well-known work The Decline of the West (GermanDer Untergang des Abendlandes) or The Downfall of the Occident written by Oswald Spengler a hundred years ago. A major topic of the work – the decline of culture and degradation of morals, policy, and economic system of the western civilization is widely discussed at present too. Spengler believed that the decline of any great culture is inevitable and manifests itself in its transition to a phase of civilization, i.e., according to his criteria, urbanization, imperialism, and socialism, which he treated rather as spiritual, than material phenomena. Moreover, rationalism, skepticism, and atheism widely spread in spiritual life of the society are also considered as evidences of the decline of traditional culture. The paper made an attempt to analyze a modern situation in the European countries according to the criteria specified.

The Role of Trust in Authorities in the Formation of Migration Flows

For the Urals in the XVII - First Half of the XVIII Century

The article is devoted to the influence of trust and distrust on the state and regional authorities on the promotion of the Russian population across the Urals, Siberia and the Far East in the 17th - the first half of the 18th centuries. Two components of the migration stream are singled out, the first is the resettlement organized by the authorities. The second part was completely unauthorized and, if possible, avoided the centers of official colonization. The dangers of living in undeveloped regions, the threat of military attacks and economic needs inevitably forced all immigrants to contact the authorities and agree to cooperate with them in exchange for legalization, protection and development of trade relations. In turn, the regional authorities, interested in settling the eastern regions, favorably accepted all the settlers, regardless of their status, seeking from the central government forgiveness for the fugitives and permission to settle them in their new place of residence.
