Edited by: V. L. Inozemtsev, P. Dutkiewicz. NY: Routledge, 2012.

This book seeks to “re-think democracy.” Over the past years, there has been a tendency in the global policy community and, even more widely, in the world’s media, to focus on democracy as the “gold standard” by which all things political are measured. This book re-examines democracy in Russia and in the world more generally, as idea, desired ideal, and practice. A major issue for Russia is whether the modernization of Russia might not prosper better by Russia focusing directly on modernization and not worrying too much about democracy. This book explores a wide range of aspects of this important question. It discusses how the debate is conducted in Russia; outlines how Russians contrast their own experiences, unfavourably, with the experience of China, where reform and modernization have been pursued with great success, with no concern for democracy; and concludes by assessing how the debate in Russia is likely to be resolved.

Over the past decade Russia has experienced stable economic growth with Gross Domestic Product (GDP) growing by 7 percent per year from 1998 to 2007. While the nation still enjoys a relatively healthy growth rate, analysis shows that the sources for the future growth are limited and to boost growth Russia should rely on increasing labor productivity. Improving productivity will impose new demands on Russia's workforce requiring better skills to satisfy the needs of economy growth. The international business environment survey reports that Russia's private sector considers the lack of skills and education of workers to be the most severe constraint on its expansion and growth. Despite the very high level of formal education attained by Russian workers the problem behind this may be explained by the current quality and content of education, which does not develop the necessary skills and competences demanded by the labor market. This report examines the reasons and the consequences of this skills deficit, which constrain productivity and limits innovation ultimately stifling accelerated economic growth in Russia. The objectives of the report are: 1) to deepen the understanding of the structure and composition of this skills deficit by analyzing in detail the demand for and supply of particular cognitive and non-cognitive skills; 2) to review the capacity and problems of the current systems for skills provision in Russia both through the public and private provision thereby identifying some of the underlying reasons for this skills gap; and 3) to support the development of evidence-based policy making in professional education and training, which will lead to a system better responding to the challenges of the economy and labor market.

Tatyana Bogdanova, Davit Bidzhoyan. Vol. 850: Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing. Springer, 2019.

This book contains a selection of papers accepted for the presentation and discussion at the 2018 International Conference on Digital Science (DSIC’18). This Conference had the support of the Institute of Certified Specialists, Russia, AISTI (Iberian Association for Information Systems and Technologies), and Springer. It will take place Convention Centre, Budva, Montenegro, October 19-21, 2018.

DSIC’18 is an international forum for researches and practitioners to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, results, experiences, and concerns in the several perspectives of Digital Science. The main idea of this Conference is that the world of science is united allowing all scientists/practitioners to be able to think, analyze, and generalize their thoughts.

DSIC aims efficiently to disseminate original research results in natural, social, art, and humanities sciences. An important characteristic feature of the Conference should be the short publication time and worldwide distribution. This Conference enables fast dissemination, so conference participants can publish their papers in print and electronic format, which is then made available worldwide and accessible by numerous researchers.

The Scientific Committee of DSIC’18 was composed of multidisciplinary group of 26 experts. One hundred and seven invited reviewers who are intimately conceded with Digital Science have had the responsibility for evaluating, in a “double-blind review” process, the papers received for each of the main themes proposed for the Conference: Digital Art and Humanities; Digital Economics; Digital Education; Digital Engineering, Digital Environmental Sciences; Digital Finance; Business and Banking; Digital Media; Digital Medicine; Pharma and Public Health; Digital Public Administration; Digital Technology and Applied Sciences.

DSIC’18 received 88 contributions from 16 countries around the world. The papers accepted for the presentation and discussion at the Conference are published by Springer (this book) and will be submitted for indexing by ISI, SCOPUS, among others.

This case study has been designed to be used for the course in Strategic Management which is being taught within the Master’s programs and MBA. It tells the history of the actual non-ferrous metals processing company actually existing in the Russian Federation. In the middle 90s of the last century, the above company found itself in deeply critical situation caused by the slump in demand in mature market. The new CEO of the company was faced with a task of choosing the strategy that could save the company from going bankrupt. We provide information on output indices movement, capacity utilization level, prices in the most important raw material and dynamics of exporting products.

Teaching notes describe how one can use the case study as a basis for strategic analysis and comparative analysis of the possible management actions of the company. We provide information on the company’s development in the following years, which allows one to estimate the effectiveness of the most rational choice of the strategy as part of the case analysis, as well as comment on it for the students to understand.

In all three countries, inflation will remain at a low level both this year and in 2015. The disinflation environment, however, may exacerbate problems in the fiscal sphere, especially on the back of sluggish economic performance. This will be important for Croatia and Serbia, where budget expenditures (and hence deficits) will increase this year. Slovenia, on the other hand, is demonstrating stronger fiscal discipline.

Economic instability and currency depreciation in the CIS have spread to other countries, with Georgia becoming the most recent victim. Bulgaria has been less affected by the crisis, but it is constrained by monetary policy.

Inflation has continued to slow in the CEE region, moving into negative territory in Hungary and declining to a historic minimum in Romania. The start of the ECB's QE program and the stabilization of financial markets have given monetary authorities in the two countries more room for rate cuts. Regardless, fiscal discipline will remain under pressure.

Croatia. Output decreased by 0.5% y-o-y in 3Q14 and will probably decline by the same amount for the full-year 2014, making it the sixth consecutive year of decline. The country managed to improve its current account balance, mainly due to the export of services, but the large budget deficit and inefficient state-owned sector is still a problem. We expect the burden of the adjustment to fall on the new government that will be appointed after the parliamentary elections at end 2015 or beginning of 2016. Serbia. GDP contracted by 3.6% y-o-y in 3Q14 and will likely be down 2.0% in 2014 as a whole. The Serbian economy was heavily affected by floods and slowing demand from its major trade partners in the EU. The country remains a twin-deficit economy: the budget deficit could get close to 7.8% of GDP this year, while the current account deficit may stay around 6.3% of GDP. The dinar weakened as a result. Fiscal consolidation is a necessary condition in the EU accession process, but its implementation will probably entail another year of economic decline in 2015. It also means the currency will probably continue to weaken further next year. Slovenia. The economic situation started to improve at end 2013 and remained positive during 2014, as GDP rose 3.2% y-o-y in 3Q14. Slovenia enjoys a current account surplus, due to its large manufacturing base, although its fiscal position was negatively affected by the banking crisis. We expect economic growth to continue in 2015, although the large amount of NPLs in the corporate sector is still a threat to stability.

> Poland. The Polish economy is growing like a DM economy, while Bulgaria is still searching for a new growth model. Unlike many other countries, Poland was able to avoid recession in 2008-09, and it continues to demonstrate sustainable growth, albeit the threat of deflation exists. Polish economic growth is expected to accelerate this year, supported by a strong performance in construction. Consistent and strong macroeconomic policy kept the country's debt/GDP ratios at bay during the crisis, and has contributed to steady deleveraging in recent years. > Bulgaria. Bulgaria's economic growth remains slow, and after a sharp correction in 2009 the economy saw little restructuring in recent years. There has been deflation since mid-2013, but economic growth is set to accelerate this year to around 1.5%, which could offset the negative impact of deflation on the budget. The country's industrial output improved in 2013-14, but domestic demand has weakened in recent months. > Latvia. Latvia's economic growth still remains strong but may decelerate this year as a side effect of instability in the region and mounting complications in relations between Russia and the EU. Heavily indebted Latvia tightened its macroeconomic policy in the aftermath of the 2008 crisis and remains committed to maintaining macro stability, having joined the Eurozone. Deflation cannot be ruled out as a result.

Increasing volatility on financial markets, uncertainty about Greece's debt restructuring and economic slowdown, and currency depreciation in the CIS region have put growth prospects in Poland and Latvia at risk. However, Poland has more flexibility to respond to these challenges, as it has an independent monetary policy and weaker links with the CIS.

The Serbian and Croatian economies contracted in 2014, GDP declining a respective 1.8% and 0.4%. Both countries are running a significant budget deficit and have an elevated level of public debt. Serbia has begun painful fiscal consolidation with the help of the IMF, while Croatia has been trying to muddle through, but it has taken its economy close to stagnation as a result.

Climate change is already having a negative impact on agricultural production in Russia, especially grain production, since this sector is perhaps the most dependent on weather and climate factors. This report presents an economic evaluation of the impact of climate change on crop production at the national level and a long-term economic evaluation of the losses, profits, and risks for agriculture throughout Russia. It analyses the situation in the two the major agricultural regions, where the negative effects of climate change are especially pronounced, and examines the prospects for adapting Russia’s agriculture to climate change
