Россия в 2015 г.: рецессия со стороны предложения
The observed facts about Russia’s 2015 recession, such as acceleration of inflation and lack of increase in unemployment, lead to conclusion that this recession was caused by supply-side restrictions rather than a fall in aggregate demand. Although it is not easy to identify these restrictions, they may be connected with such things as increased administrative pressure on business or increased monopolization of the economy in combination with a general economic stagnation that had been lasting for several years already. Under these circumstances, standard monetary and fiscal policies cannot do much. Rather, revival of economic growth requires structural reforms aimed at development of competitive economic environments and rule of law.

The article is devoted to the trends and determinants of the transformation of Russian regions' industrial specialization during the period of economic growth. Using the methodology of statistic and econometric analysis it is tested whether the tendency of diversification dominates the tendency of regions’ industrial specialization in 1997-2004 and whether there is a convergence of Russian regions' industrial structures. The considered factors of industries' development in a particular location include the initial industrial structure, inter- and intraregional technologic links between industries, quality of investment climate, R&D potential, international competition.
In this paper the public-private wage gap is estimated by means both of the OLS and the quantile regression, which will provide a more complex picture of the distribution of the public-private sector wage gap. The author finds the existence of significant public-private wage gap (about 30%) considering both observable and unobservable characteristics of workers and jobs. Using the decomposition based on quantile regression helps to answer the question about the nature of the wage differences. The author comes to the conclusion that the main reason for the gap is the institutional mechanisms of public sector wages in Russia. The analysis is based on the data from Russian Longitudinal Monitoring Survey (RLMS-HSE) 2000-2010.
