Газопровод из России в Южную Корею: российский вектор.
The book focuses on the analysis of political processes in South Korea since liberation from Japanese colonialism in August 1945 till an establishment of the Republic of Korea in August 1948. The political story of the era of liberation (1945-1948) figures as a period of tense sociopolitical standoff, which involved national groups and international forces. The political discussions over trusteeship regime, land issue, punishment of Korean collaborators, and other actual problems of the national development strengthen tensions between the Soviet Union and the United States after the World War II. The author attempts to define how South Korean political groups and international forces contributed to the tragic ending of the unfolding geopolitical conflict – a division of Korea into two independent states.
We address the external effects on public sector efficiency measures acquired using Data Envelopment Analysis. We use the health care system in Russian regions in 2011 to evaluate modern approaches to accounting for external effects. We propose a promising method of correcting DEA efficiency measures. Despite the multiple advantages DEA offers, the usage of this approach carries with it a number of methodological difficulties. Accounting for multiple factors of efficiency calls for more complex methods, among which the most promising are DMU clustering and calculating local production possibility frontiers. Using regression models for estimate correction requires further study due to possible systematic errors during estimation. A mixture of data correction and DMU clustering together with multi-stage DEA seems most promising at the moment. Analyzing several stages of transforming society’s resources into social welfare will allow for picking out the weak points in a state agency’s work.
