This article discusses the use of public finance to reindustrialize Russian economy. The authors focus on the growing wear and tear of fixed assets, which damages the competitiveness of the Russian economy (even compared to other CIS economies). They show how a proper implementation of changes to corporate profits tax (CPT) may improve the situation and provide a calculation of CPT and VAT deduction in case of repair of fully depreciated fixed assets. They also prove that cost of repair of fully depreciated fixed assets should not be deducted for CPT purposes or affect the incoming deductible VAT.
The paper examines the structure, governance, and balance sheets of state-controlled banks in Russia, which accounted for over 55 percent of the total assets in the country's banking system in early 2012. The author offers a credible estimate of the size of the country's state banking sector by including banks that are indirectly owned by public organizations. Contrary to some predictions based on the theoretical literature on economic transition, he explains the relatively high profitability and efficiency of Russian state-controlled banks by pointing to their competitive position in such functions as acquisition and disposal of assets on behalf of the government. Also suggested in the paper is a different way of looking at market concentration in Russia (by consolidating the market shares of core state-controlled banks), which produces a picture of a more concentrated market than officially reported. Lastly, one of the author's interesting conclusions is that China provides a better benchmark than the formerly centrally planned economies of Central and Eastern Europe by which to assess the viability of state ownership of banks in Russia and to evaluate the country's banking sector.
