Dabrowski M. Iss. 494: CASE Reports. Warsz.: Center for Social and Economic Research, 2018.

In the last decade, advanced economies, including the euro area, experienced deflationary pressures caused by the global financial crisis of 2007‒2009 and the anti--crisis policies that followed—in particular, the new financial regulations (which led to a deep decline in the money multiplier). However, there are numerous signs in both the real and financial spheres that these pressures are disappearing. The largest advanced economies are growing up to their potential, unemployment is systematically decreasing, the financial sector is more eager to lend, and its clients—to borrow. Rapidly growing asset prices signal the possibility of similar developments in other segments of the economy. In this new macroeconomic environment, central banks should cease unconventional monetary policies and prepare themselves to head off potential inflationary pressures.

There is a growing consensus that the major European economies will continue to stage a recovery in 2014, which will help smaller countries bounce back. The Bulgarian government has approved a budget for 2014 that envisages GDP growth of 1.8%. This number is above the 0.5% y-o-y reported for 9m13 and 0.8% seen in 3Q13, but is still relatively unimpressive for a country with relatively low GDP per capita (around $7,000 in 2012). Moreover, achieving this level of growth is not a foregone conclusion, as it will depend on the economic situation in Germany and Bulgaria's other major trade partners, particularly as the government expects growth to be driven by exports and improvements in the tourism sector

Despite the seemingly improving economic situation in Germany, a major trade partner of East European countries, economic trends in Slovenia, Hungary, Romania and Croatia have not changed much in recent months apart from some signs of a slightly deeper contraction in Slovenia and a bit of a stronger performance in Hungary. The formerly strong links between Germany and these countries' growth rates are gradually becoming weaker, pointing to a sort of "decoupling" between the core and peripheral European countries amid slowly changing foreign trade flows. German exporters are no longer benefiting from credit expansion in Eastern Europe and are increasing trade with faster-growing Asian economies, while growing trade with non-EU countries helped ease economic difficulties and/or supported growth in some East European countries (which have been able to expand trade with non-EU countries). Domestic demand remains subdued in most countries.

> Georgia. Georgia's $16 bln economy saw strong annual growth in 2010-12 of around 6-7%, but in 2013 growth slowed to 3.2%, which is still good but not enough for an economy with a GDP per capita of around $3,600. Indeed, over the year, Georgia - which depends heavily on capital inflows - failed to utilize its competitive advantage of lower unit labor costs than in other countries in the region, such as Turkey and Bulgaria. > Turkey. The Turkish economy performed well in 1H14 as industrial output rose 3.8% y-o-y (down from 5.3% y-o-y in 5m14). GDP climbed 4.3% y-o-y in 1Q14, and we estimate 2Q14 to show GDP growth just below 4.0%. We expect 3.7% for 2014 as a whole, which is a bit stronger than we expected early in the year. > Bulgaria. Similar to some other smaller economies in the region, Bulgaria benefited from a recovery in the Eurozone that was characterized by ECB President Mario Draghi on August 7 as "moderate and uneven." Bulgarian GDP picked up to around 1.4% y-o-y in 1H14 (1.2% in 1Q14 and 1.6% in 2Q14). Given that Bulgaria's currency is pegged to the euro, the country was unable to extract benefits from this recovery to the same extent as some other countries, such as Turkey, Hungary or Romania, whose monetary policy and exchange rates are more independent. In 2H14, Bulgaria will face additional pressure from potentially slower growth in the EU as policy makers in the West and Russia continue experiments with sanctions.

Economic growth. The Hungarian economy continued to perform well in 2Q14, GDP growing 3.9% y-o-y, a bit better than in 1Q14 (3.7%) according to the second reading. However, due to base effects (the economy contracted y-o-y in 1Q13 and 2Q13 was the weakest quarter of 2013 at 0.5%), seasonally and calendar-adjusted Q-o-Q GDP growth decelerated from 1.1% in 1Q14 to 0.8% in 2Q14. Romania's GDP expanded 2.4% y-o-y in 1H14 (3.9% y-o-y in 1Q14 and 1.2% in 2Q14), which looks solid compared with the rest of the EU but not as strong as in neighboring Hungary. Next year, growth is set to moderate in both countries. Investment activity. Hungary's accelerating GDP growth was driven by increased government consumption and investment in production capacity (as well as growing exports), while in Romania, investment and construction contracted. Exchange rates. The Hungarian forint has depreciated moderately this year, a bit more against the dollar and less against the euro. The weaker currency has helped keep Hungarian exports competitive on European markets (around 75% of foreign trade turnover is with EU countries). The Romanian leu has strengthened against the euro, which could explain why the country's economic performance was a bit worse in 2Q14 than earlier in the year.

Hungary, Romania and Turkey, which previously had much in common (including huge external imbalances), now seem to be following different paths. Hungary was able to orchestrate a fast but painful transition to a positive current account (and thus stabilized its external debt/GDP ratio), Romania's current account deficit has decreased, although the balance remains negative, and Turkey is still struggling to finance its external deficit of over 7% of GDP.

Poland was one of the few Eastern bloc countries to avoid a recession during the transitional period following the collapse of communism, having returned to growth already in 1993. The country also posted 1.6% growth in 2009, after which GDP growth accelerated to 4.2% on average in 2010-2011. However, it decelerated last year to 1.9%, and this year the economy is expected to expand roughly 1.2%. Overall, we expect Polish GDP in real terms to end this year 2.5 times the size it was in 1992.

Kharitonova N. Seville: Renacimiento, 2014.

The book examines two main topics related to the culture of the Spanish Republican exile in the Soviet Union: cultural centers of Spaniards in the USSR and the participation of Spanish exilées in Soviet cultural projects such as the review 'La Literatura Internacional' (later, Literatura Soviética) and the Spanish department of the publishing house Progress, in the period from 1937 until the 70ties. It's the first general study of the culture of the Spanish community in the Soviet Union based on the documents from the Spanish and Russian archives, news papers and journals, and testimonies of the Spanish exilées in the USSR.

The authors call on G20 leaders to emphasise the urgent need to address education and skills development for refugee children and youth in host countries. G20 leaders should also promote the updating and responsiveness of national education systems in terms of quantity and quality to address current migration challenges in both host countries and countries of origin. To facilitate the inclusion of refugee children and youth in formal and non-formal education systems of host countries, G20 leaders should provide additional financing, and redirect existing funds, to support education infrastructure and favourable framework conditions. We also suggest measures to intensify cooperation with local ministries of education, and to increase international cooperation in accreditation of education for refugees. We urge the G20 to strongly support international efforts to provide access to educational opportunities for refugees at all levels, including higher education.

Edited by: R. Tagiew, D. I. Ignatov, A. Neznanov et al. Leuven: Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, 2012.

In Experimental Economics, laboratory and f eld experiments are conducted on subjects in order to improve theoretical knowledge about human behavior in interactions. Although paying diff erent amounts of money restricts the preferences of the subjects in experiments, the exclusive application of analytical game theory does not suce to explain the recorded data. It exacts the development and evaluation of more sophisticated models. In some experiments, human subjects are involved into an interaction with automated agents and these agents are used for simulating human interactions. The more data is used for the evaluation, the more of statistical signi cance can be achieved. Since huge amounts of behavioral data are required to be scanned for regularities and automated agents are required to simulate and to intervene human interactions, Machine Learning is the tool of choice for the research in Experimental Economics. Moreover modern economics extensively involves network structures, which can be modeled as graphs or more complicated relational structures.

This volume contains the papers presented at the inaugural International Workshop on Experimental Economics and Machine Learning (EEML 2012) held on May 9, 2012 at the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium. This year the committee decided to accept 8 full papers for publication in the proceedings and two abstracts for presentation at the conference. Each submission was reviewed by on average 3 program committee members. R. Tagiew proposes a new method for mining determinism in human strategic behavior. N. Buzun et al. present a comparison of methods and measures for overlapping community detection. A. Fishkov et al. discuss a new click model for relevance prediction inWeb search. A. Drutsa et al. applied novel data visualisation techniques to socio-semantic network data. Gilabert et al. made an experimental study on the relationship between trust and budgetary slack. O. Barinova et al. proposed using online random forest for interactive image segmentation. A. Bezzubtseva et al. built a new typology of collaboration platform users. V. Zaharchuk et al. proposed a new recommender system for interactive radio network services. D. Ignatov et al. designed a prototype system for collaborative platform data analysis.

We would like to express our gratitude to all contributing authors and reviewers, especially to Malay Bhattacharyya, Hoang Thanh Lam, Olga Barinova and Alexandra Kaminskaya for their enormous e orts. We also want to thank our sponsors Amsterdam-Amstelland police, IBM Belgium, Research Foundation Flanders, Vlerick Management School, OpenConnect Systems and Higher School of Economics.

Human communication is basically the exchange of information. How can this be realized? Each communicant proceeds from a subjective perception of an objective reality; however in order to exchange information relating to this reality communicants are obliged to coordinate their perceptions. Each of us entertains personal experiences based on individual impressions and associations. But communication presupposes the presence of a common experience and the possibility of the coordination of subjective perceptions. It is presumed that communicants share common experiences: this seems to be the natural premise of communication.

            How is this possible? How can I be certain, for example, that my interlocutor understands the words in the same way I do? How can we correlate our understanding? It seems obvious that the necessary condition of communication is an agreement between the communicants. But how can this agreement be reached? Where is the initial point of the coordination of individual experience of different persons?

            The present book deals with this and related questions. Special attention is given to the role of deixis in the process of communication and to the mechanisms of linguistic comprehension.
