Working paper
Peiris U., Sokolova A., Tsomocos D. WP 2017. Saïd Business School . University of Oxford, 2017. No. 03.
The post-2008 period focused attention on "twin-crises". Banking crises may lead to sovereign crises where fiscal vulnerabilities are exacerbated by the extension of support for the banking system. We develop a model that describes private sector generated capital inflow that is used to finance investment and consumption expenditure. In the event of an economic contraction, the (convex) haircut on outstanding debt is negotiated, or bargained, centrally by the sovereign. Two results arise: the volume of debt and haircut rate are inefficient. In this setting the accumulation of capital achieves two goals. First, it generates sufficient optimism about future income to allow the debt market to function. Second, and counter-intuitively, it increases expected haircuts by raising the value of the outside option of complete default. These competing forces characterize the optimal balanced-budget macroprudential policy targeting capital investment.

Makarov I. A., Sokolova A. FIW Working Paper. The Federal Ministry of Science, Research and Economy (BMWFW), 2015. No. 149.
According to current international climate change regime countries are responsible for greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, which result from economic activities within national borders, including emissions from producing goods for exports. At the same time imports of carbon intensive goods are not regulated by international agreements. In this paper emissions embodied in exports and imports of Russia were calculated with the use of inter-country input-output tables. It was revealed that Russia is the second largest exporter of emissions embodied in trade and the large portion of these emissions is directed to developed countries. The reasons for high carbon intensity of Russia’s exports are obsolete technologies (in comparison to developed economies) and the structure of commodity exports. Because of large amount of net exports of carbon intensive goods the current approach to emissions accounting does not suit interests of Russia. On the one hand, Russia, as well as other large net emissions exporters, is interested in the revision of allocation of responsibility between producers and consumers of carbon intensive products. On the other hand, current technological backwardness makes Russia vulnerable to the policy of “carbon protectionism”, which can be implemented by its trade partners.

Rebiazina V. A. Management. CASE - Reference no. 516-0182-1. The Case Center, 2016. No. 516-0182-1.
The case is focused on the main changes in the marketing strategy of the Industrial Park 'Levoberezhniy'. Industrial Park 'Levoberezhniy' is an industrial area situated in Kirishi, the Leningrad Region, Russia. The industrial park is brownfield and allows to place up to first hazard class enterprises at the site. The objective of the case is to develop the competencies of b2b marketing strategy analysis on the basis of the Industrial Park 'Levoberezhniy'. The industrial park faces the strategic alternative: to create the additional value for the residents by forming the pool of complementary residents with synergetic production approach or to earn money faster by selling the land to any potential residents. This choice is challenging, because creating additional value by synergetic approach takes a lot of time and money and the final synergetic effect can't be easily predicted. It is quite difficult to figure out all possible interactions between potential residents and find out all possible forms of their cooperation. The objective of the current marketing strategy is aimed at increasing the amount of residents in the industrial park, capturing new b2b markets in Russia and finding the potential residents in the foreign market. However, at the moment top management of the company is not satisfied with the marketing strategy, as up to now Industrial Park 'Levoberezhniy' doesn’t have enough residents. The existing marketing and communication strategy has to be changed as the company plans to find the residents in the foreign market.

The paper focuses on the syntax of noun phrases in Chukchi (Chukokto-Kamchatkan). In Chukchi, structure of noun phrases is drastically different dependent on the case of  its head in several respects: we discuss expression of number, incorporation of adnominal dependents and order of constituent. We suggest several order hierarchies, which can partially explain the observed facts.

Rebiazina V. A. Management. CASE - Reference no. 514-082-1. The Case Center, 2014. No. 514-082-1.
The case is focused on the main changes in marketing strategy of the 'Uraltrubmash' company which happened due to the implementation of new production technology in 2006. JSC 'Uraltrubmash' is a tube rolling plant, operating in the Russian market since 1994. Modernization of the plant and changes in production technologies allowed the company to offer unique selling proposition to its clients, to differentiate from competitors and find marketing niches in the Russian B2B market, as well as significantly improve the quality of customer service. In 2014, the company is Russia's largest manufacturer of precision tubes, with leading positions in several niche markets. The implementation of new production technology in 2006-2009 resulted in changing of many areas including the plant's marketing strategy and had positive impact on the image of the plant. The objective of the current marketing strategy of 'Uraltrubmash' is aimed at increasing the loyalty of existing customers, capturing new markets in Russia and entering European market. However, at the moment top management of the company is not satisfied with its marketing strategy, as up to now the plant was focused on improving product quality and optimising production processes, while marketing was viewed as a second priority and as a background function. The existing marketing strategy has to be changed as the company plans to enter European market.

Positselski L. arxiv.org. math. Cornell University, 2014. No. 1404.5011.
We construct the reduction of an exact category with a twist functor with respect to an element of its graded center in presence of an exact-conservative forgetful functor annihilating this central element. The procedure allows, e.g., to recover the abelian/exact category of modular representations of a finite group from the exact category of its l-adic representations. The construction uses matrix factorizations in a nontraditional way. We obtain the Bockstein long exact sequences for the Ext groups in the exact categories produced by reduction. Our motivation comes from the theory of Artin--Tate motives and motivic sheaves with finite coefficients, and our key techniques generalize those of Section 4 in the author's paper "Mixed Artin-Tate motives with finite coefficients".

We introduce the notion of a categorical cone, which provides a categorification of the classical cone over a projective variety, and use our work on categorical joins to describe its behavior under homological projective duality. In particular, our construction provides well-behaved categorical resolutions of singular quadrics, which we use to obtain an explicit quadratic version of the main theorem of homological projective duality. As applications, we prove the duality conjecture for Gushel-Mukai varieties, and produce interesting examples of conifold transitions between noncommutative and honest Calabi-Yau threefolds.

We introduce the notion of a categorical join, which can be thought of as a categorification of the classical join of two projective varieties. This notion is in the spirit of homological projective duality, which categorifies classical projective duality. Our main theorem says that the homological projective dual category of the categorical join is naturally equivalent to the categorical join of the homological projective dual categories. This categorifies the classical version of this assertion and has many applications, including a nonlinear version of the main theorem of homological projective duality.

  We show that the derived category of any singularity over a field of characteristic 0 can be embedded fully and faithfully into a smooth triangulated category which has a semiorthogonal decomposition with components equivalent to derived categories of smooth varieties. This provides a categorical resolution of the singularity.

This paper examines determinants of corruption across Russian regions. Key contributions include: (i) a formal study of economic corruption determinants across Russian regions; (ii) comparisons of determinants of perceived corruption versus those of actual corruption; and (iii) studying the influence of market competition and other factors on corruption. The re-sults show that economic prosperity, population, market competition and urbanization are significant determinants of Russian corruption. The use of alternative corruption measures reveals that economic prosperity and population have a largely similar impact on corrup-tion perceptions and corruption incidence. However, there are significant differences in the effects of competition and urbanization.

We propose a new method for assessing agents’ influence in network structures, which takes into consideration nodes attributes, individual and group influences of nodes, and the intensity of interactions. This approach helps us to identify both explicit and hidden central elements which cannot be detected by classical centrality measures or other indices.

The article suggests concept of chain generalized exchange proposed by Ekeh (1974) as a central concept underlying nonprofit marketing. Most studies and research perspectives are based on controversial concept of complex exchange (Bagozzi,1975) to be a central concept for nonprofit marketing. Article discusses limitations of complex exchange concept and offers chain generalized exchange to be a central concept of nonprofit marketing.

Nonprofit accountability in Russia is becoming increasingly important as nonprofit organizations become more open delivering more social services, public participation increases and third sector institutions evolve. In this paper authors demonstrate accountability in its different dimensions as it is shaped by the specific Russian social, economic and political environment. Supportive  empirical data available from the annual Monitoring of the State of Russian Civil Society is used to argue that Russian nonprofits face contradictions between “accountability for” and “accountability to” different stakeholders. These contradictions are a challenge requiring new legislation and behavioral ethics which could balance the sector’s heterogeneity.  In conclusion a two-tier regulatory framework is suggested.

 We consider the class C(T) of continuous real-valued functions on the circle. For certain classes of functions naturally characterised by the rapidity of decrease of Fourier coefficients we investigate whether it is possible to bring families of functions in C(T) into these classes by a change of variable. This paper was originally published in Matematicheskii Sbornik, 181:8 (1990), 1099--1113 (Russian). The English translation, published in Mathematics of the USSR, Sbornik, 70:2 (1991), 541--555, is to a large extent inconsistent with the original text. Herein the author provides a corrected translation.

This paper uses data from the Russian Longitudinal Survey that span the two recent economic recessions of 1998 and 2008 to study the effect of declining incomes on household composition. We hypothesize that individuals face a tradeoff between taking advantages of economies of scale and specialization when living with others and individual privacy. Consumption smoothing is achieved by forgoing privacy during a crisis and results in an increase in household size. Our empirical results suggest that members of the households that experienced negative income shocks are more likely to move in with others than households whose income remained the same or increased.

This study investigates the topical structure of the Russian-language blog-publishing service LiveJournal and the change in it that occurred in the course of the public activity after the State Duma elections in December 2011 as compared to a previous “control” period (November 27 – December 27 and August 15 – September 15 respectively). The data for both periods have been automatically obtained from 2000 top-rated blogs on the basis of ratings published by LiveJournal. Unsupervised topic modelling of the sampled posts was done using Latent Dirichlet Allocation algorithm. In December 2011 we found considerable growth in weights of all the topics closely associated with the discussion of voting results and protests, accompanied by a more moderate decrease in the majority of other social topics.The number of users who started posting texts that may be conventionally qualified as political according to LDA in December 2011, considerably outnumbers the number of those who ceased posting political items, which may indicate the existence of a blogger mobilization process in political topics.

This article analyzes changes in contemporary Latvian historical culture as regards the place it assigns to Baltic Germans in the country's past. During most of the twentieth century, their past presence in the region was represented as not really important. German noblemen and burghers were reckoned to the exploitative classes and, as such, received negative appraisal. After Latvia became independent from the USSR, German heritage came to be cherished as a symbol of Latvia’s Europeanness and a major attraction for international tourists, which is especially visible in Riga. In smaller towns, such as Koknese, partnership with a German town may originate from historic ties linking former Baltic Germans to the place, but this does not necessarily involve a historical policy emphasizing their positive presence in the history of the town. In the rural community of Irši, a transformation of the local historical culture largely takes place under the influence of the so-called ‘homesick tourists’ from Germany who come to visit the former German colony Hirschenhof that existed between 1766 and 1939.

In 2013, Russia launched Project 5-100 to place five Russian universities among the top 100 university rankings by 2020. As one of the important changes within universities Project 5-100 sought an enhancement of the management system. This paper provides insights into the changing roles and responsibilities of middle managers in Russian university under Project 5-100. The theoretical approach of new managerialism was applied, using documentary analysis, semi-structured interviews and survey as data-gathering tools. The findings demonstrate that significant changes toward more a managerial character influenced the responsibilities of the heads of academic units (HAU). It reveals disagreement between managers and academics on many questions evaluating the changes. The author concludes that managers also may contribute to the implementation of Project 5-100, but agreement between different levels of staff needs to be achieved for further successful development.
