Liquidity squeeze triggered by Russian clamp-down (an interview in the article)
Integration processes in the EAEU is associated with the development of regional banking regulation that secures the effectiveness of the integration policy and, ultimately, financial stability. The integrity of the regional regulatory mechanism will largely depend on the effectiveness of convergence and supranationalization of the economic and institutional aspects of banking regulation of the EAEU member states, and at the same time – on their synchronization with Basel III. In this regard, a regional regulatory mechanism – mini Basel III – should become the central core of the EAEU regulatory and supervisory system, a tool for mitigation of systemic risks, and a mean for maintenance of stress resilience of the national banking sectors, as well as a channel of interaction with international banking regulation authorities.
However, currently EAEU banking regulation lacks a complete framework, mostly due to the shortage of strategic vision on regulatory convergence and poor understanding of the integration risks due to the absence of reliable tools for measuring imbalances in the banking sector. Besides, a number of issues of institutional supranationalization, including the delegation of the regulatory power from national to supranational level, still remain open.
In this work, the author continues the study of the regionalization of banking regulation and supervision in the EAEU focusing on systemic risks and how the mini-Basel III mechanism could become a key tool in minimization of the system-wide instability and crises.
The article considers comparatively new but more and more developing trend in banking regulation and supervision which empowers the regulator (supervision body) to perform not only traditional prudential regulation aimed at financial stability of a credit institution, but also conduct of a credit institution vis-à-vis the client
Collection of research papers prepared on the basis of a multi-disciplinary scientific-practical seminar "International sanctions: threats, challenges and opportunities for the modernization of the Russian economy" (October 29, 2014). In the collection covers a wide range of problems related to the influence of the international situations on the Russian economy and development potential of importsubstitution.
The article delves into risks of differences in the banking regulation regimes of the EAEU member states and substantiates their alignment that would aim at entrenchment of the objectives of Eurasian economic integration, on the one hand, and ensuring financial stability, on the other hand. In this case, efforts to smoothening regionalization of banking regulation based on “mini-Basel III” approach seem to reduce the detrimental effect of systemic risks, which in fact is one of the principal driving forces of integration processes consistency and the achievement of the objectives of Eurasian integration.
Smoking is a problem, bringing signifi cant social and economic costs to Russiansociety. However, ratifi cation of the World health organization Framework conventionon tobacco control makes it possible to improve Russian legislation accordingto the international standards. So, I describe some measures that should be taken bythe Russian authorities in the nearest future, and I examine their effi ciency. By studyingthe international evidence I analyze the impact of the smoke-free areas, advertisementand sponsorship bans, tax increases, etc. on the prevalence of smoking, cigaretteconsumption and some other indicators. I also investigate the obstacles confrontingthe Russian authorities when they introduce new policy measures and the public attitudetowards these measures. I conclude that there is a number of easy-to-implementanti-smoking activities that need no fi nancial resources but only a political will.
One of the most important indicators of company's success is the increase of its value. The article investigates traditional methods of company's value assessment and the evidence that the application of these methods is incorrect in the new stage of economy.
