Über dieses Buch

This book describes the importance of integration and clustering in creating sustainable economic growth. Modern economic conditions demonstrate the need for governmental stimulation of cluster initiatives in entrepreneurship, and make it necessary to study the experience of developed countries in the sphere of stimulation of cluster initiatives in entrepreneurship, and to offer recommendations for improving the system of state stimulation of these initiatives. The authors conclude that at present, innovational economy is an economic system that functions on the basis of business networks, as this model offers innovational cooperation between specialists from various scientific and technical spheres, between organizations of various sizes (large, medium, and small), and between groups of various types of companies. Cluster strategy in modern global practice is one of the most important tools of public policy for increasing the competitiveness of national economies. This means that the most competitive spheres develop on the basis of the cluster principle, and support for cluster building increases a country’s economic competitiveness.

Support for Cluster Initiatives in View of Development of Innovational Economy: Regarding the Issue of Legal Regulation at the Level of Subjects of the Russian Federation

Detailed study of the global tendencies of state economy’s transition to innovational type of development allows making a conclusion about active popularization of the phenomenon of economic clustering over the recent 15 years. Unification into clusters of small and medium enterprises has to become a decisive direction of realization of the strategies of perfection of particular spheres, which pre-determines priority of development of foundations of cluster theory as applied to territorial organization of production. Experience of the developed countries points at active application of cluster approach which has been used within study of the problems of competitiveness, in the process of development and realization of strategies and programs of development, and for the purposes of optimization of interaction of various subjects of large and smack business. The same path was chosen by the Russian Federation. The Russian Government has taken a serious task of transformation of the structure of small business through increase of the share of small enterprises involved in the sphere of processing industry on the basis of sub-contracts with large enterprises. It is a serious reason for activation of cluster policy and scientific study of the issues of state and other actors’ conducting the cluster development of territories. It is also a significant foundation for realization of attempts for determination of existing gaps in its regulation in normative and legal vector.

Methodology of Complex Evaluation of Eco-Economic Effectiveness of Agricultural Clusters

Aggravation of ecological problems in agriculture leads to necessity for formation of a new scientific approach to evaluation of eco-economic effectiveness of the use of agricultural lands and formation of irrigated agriculture clusters. Insufficiently systemic approach to consideration of a large number of ecological risk factors during formation and development of agricultural clusters leads to economic problems—primarily, due to reduction of soil fertility.Solving the issue of systematization of the above characteristics allows describing any complex eco-economic system, including the complex of ameliorative measures. Therefore, the paper offers the methodology of unified evaluation complex for assessment of investment projects related to amelioration.Possibility of integration into a unified model of key indicators of the project, reflected in the form of quantitative evaluations that characterize the project at a certain moment allows realizing the task of building a systemic interconnection of quantity and quality of conducted ameliorative measures and evaluation of expenses for them. The developed graphical model of a unified evaluation complex allows for qualitative assessment of economic effectiveness of the project and the volume of expense for creation of the project on the whole and of its specific elements.

Political Existence of the System of Social Space-Time

Politics is interpreted as an activity that regulates social time and space (STS), and the peculiarities of the mechanisms and processes of STS are considered in the general context of society’s civilizational and political history.In this aspect, every epoch is characterized not only by its own “design” of STS and the range of political chronotopes, but also by the peculiarities of their forming and the peculiarities of social identity. It should be mentioned that in pre-industrial societies the structure of STS, the range of political chronotopes and their geopolitical hierarchy are determined primarily by natural-geographical factor (population and territory size, resource potential). In industrial society, it is determined by the level of technological development. In modern world, the specificity of social time and space is determined primarily by the variety of person’s identities of political and cultural self-identification and by the scale and level of involvement of “the virtual” in society’s social and political objective reality. In this context, projective and virtual transformative individual and social minorities’ activity become the dominant process of forming STS and regulating political objective reality.

Wind Rose as One of the Main Factors of Apartment Buying Decision

The article analyzes the data on wind directions in the city of Volgograd for 1998–2014. As a result of statistical analysis, we found the disparity between empirical data and the data obtained from the set of rules of building climatology. According to the set of rules, the predominant wind direction in Volgograd is west wind, and according to our data—east wind. As the study showed, many citizens of Volgograd consider the issue of wind direction not to be the one that should be taken into account when buying an apartment. However, it should be known that lack of data on predominant wind direction might lead to the purchase of apartment which would have less comfort than apartment which is less influenced by wind, especially winter wind. Based on longstanding meteorological data, we have built a general wind rose for Volgograd which can be used by anyone who plans to buy the real estate property. This is necessary, as many developers neglect the influence of the wind rose on residential houses and focus on location of the house on the property.

Conceptual Aspects of Tax System Development in Cyclic Economy

The objective of the research is study of the transition points of the tax system in order to define its further development. The paper envisages the tax system development regularity as a dynamic system within various forms of economies.The methods of dialectics were applied in this article such as induction and deduction, analysis and synthesis as well as logic approach to noesis. Theoretic and methodological basis consists of fundamental works in the catastrophic theory, mathematic simulation, and self-organizing system theory represented in the works of Russian and foreign scientists.Different variants of phase transition from one economic system to another are defined within the present research. The features of each system phase transition within the acknowledged chronology are considered. The key impelling factors for each period are found. The probable development vector of the tax system after the finance crisis in 2018–2020 is determined.The altered economic conditions will require the formation of completely new tax system where the main taxable items will include labor, financial capital and land. The phase transition will presumably last for several decades and will induce high levels of social, politic, and economic instability in the world. The formation transition takes place under the influence of external factors and only at the precise moment when the previous formation has created the necessary conditions for that transition to the next formation.

Economic Aspects of Application of Biotechnologies During Creation of Forest Plantations

The article views economic possibilities for creation of forest plantations on the territory of forest fund and areas taken from agricultural turnover. With the help of survey among the managers of enterprises that work in the sphere of forestry, evaluation of risk and income during creation and exploitation of forest plantations was performed. It was established that the age of cutting (or turnover) of forest plantations, together with assortment and agricultural technique of growing, influences significantly the entrepreneurial revenues and risks. Forest plantations with minimal turnover of cutting are the most risky and unprofitable. A criterion of entrepreneurial certainty in effectiveness of creation of forest plantations is combination of acceptable level of revenues with acceptable risk. It is proved that significant factors for development of entrepreneurship in this sphere are measures for support and tax subsidies. A large part of entrepreneurs that work in the forestry sphere of the central part of Russia are not sure in effectiveness of plantation forestry, as these activities are related to risk and uncertainty in receipt of the final result, due to long time intervals of growing plantation trees. The economically expedient plantation forestry is based on combination of two conditions—turnover of cutting for the criterion of maximum of receipt of the targeted assortments and price for assortments that is sufficient for compensation of production costs which appear in the process of cutting. A large contribution into reduction of the turnover of cutting and, as a consequence, reduction of production costs could be done by biotechnologies. It is determined that with the use of biotechnologies, the cost of creation of forest plantations grow significantly. That’s why entrepreneurial structures are not interested in creation of plantations. This task could be solved in the sphere of development and establishment of the State program of support for development of agricultural forestry and plantation forest breeding. The program should envisage economic mechanisms of stimulation of development of plantation forest breeding.

Green Technologies: The Basis for Integration and Clustering of Subjects at the Regional Level of Economy

The authors consider the green technology as a platform to bring together the interests of business structures to expand business boundaries and improve the quality of life of the population. Development in the South Russian regions and cluster seed is not only a way to food security, but to the landscape gardening of cities and rural settlements. The use in landscaping cities of the matrices of Pete Oudolfa will bring the unique plants growing in the natural park of nature reserves in the region to urban human habitat. Knowledge and compliance with environmental laws should help mankind realize the need to search for and transition to a new stage of development of the world economy—“economy of ecology”. The emergence of the concept of ecological settlements “after oil green city” (Post Carbon Cities), “bio-positive sustainable settlement” (AN Tetior) eco-polis (D. Kavtardze), and green city based on industrialized medium-sized cities (L.N. Medvedeva) will provide an understanding of how life is seen in cities across the decades. Cluster policy model in regional economic systems will allow a differentiated approach to stimulate the cluster of subjects. The management of “lean technologies” will ensure the effective functioning of the cluster seed and achievement of identified milestones.

Strategic Management of Clustering Policy During Provision of Sustainable Development

Analysis of the problems of sustainable development of territories shows that one of the main methods for solving is transition to strategic management of the policy of clustering. Strategic management of the policy of clustering is pre-determined mainly by quick changes of external environment and emergence of hardly predictable economic and financial situations. An important precondition of transition to strategic management of the policy of clustering of territories is the process of globalization of the country’s economy, which determines not only the necessity to use the resource potential effectively, but also to create conditions for creation and formation of new competitive advantages. Enterprises and organizations of small business should become their bearers. The Concept of long-term socio-economic development of the Russian Federation until 2020 sets one of the most important conditions for transition to innovational development as “creation of a network of territorial and production clusters which realize competitive potential of territories”. Besides, the Strategy of innovational development of the Russian Federation until 2020 includes into the main goals of innovational policy of regions the transition to principles of innovational cluster policy. Thus, strategic documents of the federal level pay special attention to management of clustering policy through creation of a network of clusters which would allow increasing effectiveness of using competitive potential of territories and providing their sustainable development through development of the network of territorial and production clusters of subjects of small business.
