The collection of materials of the IX international research and practice conference "European Science and Technology" is the research and practice edition which includes the scientific articles od students, graduate students, postdoctoral students, doctoral candidates, research scientists of higher education institutions of Europe, Russia, the countries of FSU and beyond reflecting the processes and the changes occurring in the structure of present knowledge.
There are a lot of changes in all spheres of life in China, including art, in the end of 1970. This leads to appearance of new directions in art, also brings the fundamental changes in principles of art of China. Wang Guangyi is considered to be the founder of the Political Pop art. Political Pop art is one of the leading directions in contemporary Chinese art in the beginning of the 90th. This article is devoted to the oeuvre of Wang Guangyi and the process of appearance of Political Pop art, its prerequisites, conceptions and stylistic characteristics.
In theory, a poverty line can be defined as the cost of a common (inter-personally comparable) utility level across a population. But how can one know if this holds in practice? For groups sharing common consumption needs but facing different prices, the theory of revealed preference can be used to derive testable implications of utility consistency knowing only the "poverty bundles" and their prices. Heterogeneity in needs calls for extra information. We argue that subjective welfare data offer a credible means of testing utility consistency across different needs groups. A case study of Russia's official poverty lines shows how revealed preference tests can be used in conjunction with qualitative information on needs heterogeneity. The results lead us to question the utility consistency of Russia's official poverty lines.
In the coming decades in the process of globalization the position of the USA and Europe will weaken, while the role of developing countries will increase. The role of the two largest emerging economies – China and India – will be of special significance. What future will these fast-growing giants face? The demographers agree that pretty soon India will lead the world in population and thus surpass China, while China will encounter serious ageing population problems. But economic and political scenarios of the future are quite different: from resounding success and world leadership to collapse caused by demographic and socio-political troubles. Which of them is more feasible? In the present article I analyze the Chinese and Indian development models separately and comparatively and make a forecast of their perspectives in the twenty-first century. Such an analysis could be helpful for understanding Russia's ways of development.
The article considers the preliminary results of the research comparing self assessment and real choices behavior strategies in difficult and conflict situations.
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.
