Dear Colleagues,

 


As you will all be aware the Nobel Prize in Economics for 2015 has been awarded to Angus Deaton from Princeton “for his analysis of consumption, poverty, and welfare”.  Deaton has worked on consumption, demand and inequality. His real contribution is perhaps methodological; leading economists to base policy on evidence, and requiring that evidence to be strongly founded on analytical rigor and high quality data collected for the purpose. Deaton’s approach transformed the study of macroeconomics, particularly the links between individual income and consumption choices, and macroeconomic framing of the consumption function. He is a pioneer on household surveys, and his work has hugely improved our understanding of the relationship between consumption and income in poorer countries, as well as how people respond to changes in prices.

 

Deaton’s work has influenced many branches of economics, including comparative economics. The widespread development and application, for example, of household surveys in the transition economies to understand the functioning of the labour markets or the impact of consumption taxes owes much to his work. While much thinking in recent years has gone to more abstract and less easily measured concepts related to institutions, Deaton’s research brings us back to the micro-foundations of macroeconomic behaviour and reminds us that the use of heuristics on rich and reliable datasets allows quite simple economic theories to provide deep insights.

 

At the same time, economic events of the past twelve months have led us yet again to rethink what until recently seemed to be the inevitable trends of history. A few years ago, there seemed to be consensus about the inexorable rise of China, and perhaps the so- called BRICs, as an economic force, paralleled by the decline of the United States and Europe. Such unidimensional analyses seem rather dated now. There seems little doubt that China’s growth rate is slowing and will continue to do so. At the same time, deep structural problems which have their roots in institutions, history and culture are casting long shadows over the growth potential of countries as diverse as Brazil, Russia, Turkey and Nigeria, not to mention the European Union. The need for a framework which is more specific and context based has once again been highlighted.

 

Comparative economics starts from the premise that our understanding of economic performance in one context can be deepened by comparison with other contexts, and the problems thrown up in the past few years in many emerging and developed economies highlights the need for such research. Deaton’s Nobel Prize reminds us that it is important for such work to be strongly evidence- based.

 

I trust the entire EACES membership has a productive and reflective end to 2015, and I wish you well in all your endeavours.

The EACES workshop “Russian Firms in Comparative Perspective” will be held within the framework of the XVII HSE International Academic Conference on Economic and Social Development (Moscow, April 19-22, 2016). The workshop is organized by the Institute for Industrial and Market Studies of National Research University – Higher School of Economics (HSE) in cooperation with EACES and Economic Systems (http://www.journals.elsevier.com/economic-systems/, 2014 Tompson Reuters Journal Citation Report Impact Factor: 0.649).

The EACES workshop aims to promote empirical research on Russian firms by the international academic community. The workshop also intends to develop academic networks among researchers interested in Russian and other emerging economies. We especially welcome studies related to the organization, management, behavior as well as internationalization of Russian firms with a comparative perspective over time or between other countries.

 

Accordingly, we solicit papers on a variety of related topics, including but not limited to:

l  Ownership structures, privatization, renationalization, and corporate governance system;

l  Management systems and technologies, investment, innovation, restructuring;

l  Emergence and future prospects of family and small businesses;

l  Market entry and exit, firm survival, firm performance;

l  State-business relationship, investment climate, state capture, corruption.

l  Internationalization, international competitiveness;

l  Impact of financial crises and sanctions on business development.

 

The working language of the workshop will be English.

 

The workshop program will include a keynote speech by Prof. Saul Estrin (London School of Economics and Political Science; President of EACES) and a number of panel sessions on specific topics. The duration of a panel session is 90 minutes. Researches will have 15 minutes for presentation to be followed up by discussants.

 

We invite you to send extended abstracts of papers for presentation at the workshop to organizers (ayakovlev@hse.ru) and simultaneously to register and to submit the abstract on the HSE academic conference website online (see more details at: http://conf.hse.ru/en/2016). We accept your paper proposal from September 9, 2015 until November 11, 2015. The abstract should be in RTF or Microsoft Word formats, be no longer than 1,500 words and include three to five key words. For accepted papers, we would ask authors to upload the full version of the paper (no longer than 10,000 words; Word, RTF or PDF file) into the conference website (and also send the paper to e-mail address ayakovlev@hse.ru) by March 7, 2016.

 

Program Committee of the Workshop: Tatiana Dolgopyatova (HSE, Russia), Julan Du (Chinese University of Hong Kong, China), Ichiro Iwasaki (Hitotsubashi University, Japan), Byung-Yeon Kim (Seoul National University, South Korea), Tomasz Mickiewicz (Aston Business School, UK), Alexander Muravyev (HSE, Russia & IZA, Germany), Andrei Yakovlev (HSE, Russia).

3.2 Education at Higher School of Economics

 

 

 

 

 

 

Introduction to Education at HSE University

 

HSE University is Russia’s leading higher education institution not only in economics and social sciences, but also in the humanities and computer science. Based in Moscow, with campuses in St. Petersburg, Nizhny Novgorod, and Perm, HSE is an international university that attracts students, professors, and researchers from around the globe. The university combines Russian education traditions with the best international teaching practices, and offers education programs specifically for non-Russian students at all levels of education.

 

HSE’s Foundation Year prepares students who have no knowledge of Russian language with the necessary skills to enter into Russian-taught bachelor’s and master’s programs.

 

For students who wish to study in English, HSE offers 17 English-taught two-year master’s programs – more than any other university in Russia. These programs span computer science, economics, humanities, international affairs, law, management, mathematics, and social sciences. Many are double-degree programs taught with partner universities in Europe, so that students gain experience not only in Russia but also in another country as well. In addition, full-tuition government scholarships are available for international students in many of these full-degree master’s programs.

 

Currently, HSE has one English-taught double-degree bachelor’s program in economics, in collaboration with the London School of Economics and Political Science (University of London).

 

Many international students first come to HSE for short-term programs, where they can earn ECTS credits that are transferable to their home universities. Summer University is open to students from all academic fields and offers an interdisciplinary selection of English-taught courses. Semester in Moscow is held during the fall and spring semesters and visiting students in this program can take any courses offered at HSE that meet the requirements of their home universities.

 

HSE also offers Russian language training at all levels throughout the year, including an intensive 10-week summer school and a 6-month Russian foundation course.

 

The university’s main buildings are located in the center of Moscow, in the Kitai Gorod neighborhood. HSE has much experience in working with international students and has offices and units devoted entirely to providing support on issues from applying and visa processing to selecting courses and finding cultural activities. All international students are guaranteed housing in one of HSE’s affordable dormitories, which are easily accessible by public transportation.

 

Best regards,

5.1 Book Publication

 

Disequilibrium Sports Economics, edited by Wladimir Andreff, Edward Elgar, 2015

 

Palgrave Dictionary of Emerging Markets and Transition Economics, 2015, Palgrave Macmillan

 

Edited by Jens Holscher and Horst Tomann

 

The period of transition from socialism to capitalism in parts of Europe and Asia over the past 25 years has attracted considerable interest in academia and beyond. From the Editors of Palgrave's iconic series 'Studies in Economic Transition' comes the Palgrave Dictionary of Emerging Markets and Transition Economics. This dictionary addresses the needs of students, lecturers and the interested general public to quickly find definitions and explanations of topics, institutions, personalities and processes in this historical phase of changing societies, which as such is not concluded. Today newly emerging market economies try to learn from the experiences of transition economies. Those who love The New Palgrave Dictionary of Economics will enjoy the format of this Dictionary, which uses an encyclopaedia-based approach, where articles not only define the terms but provide an overview of the evolution of the term or theory and also touch on the current debates.

Editorial:

 

The presidential message in this 75th issue of EACES quarterly newsletter mentions the recognition of Professor Angus Deaton’s work on consumption, poverty, and welfare that bagged Nobel Prize in economic sciences for the year 2015. His real contribution is perhaps methodological; leading economists to base policy on evidence, and requiring that evidence to be strongly founded on analytical rigour and high quality data collected for the purpose. Deaton’s approach, linked to many branches of economics including comparative economics as well, establishes the links between individual income, consumption choices, and macroeconomic framing of the consumption function. As a pioneer of household surveys and bringing us back to the micro-foundations of macroeconomic behaviour his work has hugely improved our understanding of the relationship between consumption and income in poorer countries. His work is an example how rich and reliable datasets allows quite simple economic theories to provide deep insights.

 

Section 2 of this newsletter includes call for papers to two interesting workshops: 2nd Workshop (Youth) on Unemployment in Europe, 5-6 May, 2015, Warsaw, Poland, and EACES Workshop on Russian Firms in Comparative Perspective to be held in April 21-22, 2016, Moscow, Russia. Researchers are requested to follow the contacts and present their research outcomes. Likewise, Section 3 is about some announcements. It gives information regarding Newsletter of the Turin Centre on Emerging Economies (OEET), and Education at Higher School of Economics, Moscow, Russia.

 

Central European University, Budapest, Hungary is organising a conference on the Role of State in Varieties of Capitalism (SVOC): Achievements and Challenges for Central and Eastern Europe and the Emerging Markets, 26-27 November 2015. Section 4 presents information regarding this. The conference will be quite innovative in its nature; and we will keep posting additional available information.

 

Section 5 is all about recent publications of some EACES members. Wladimir Andreff, Professor Emeritus, University of Paris 1 Panthéon Sorbonne, France, has edited Disequilibrium Sports Economics published by Edward Elgar, 2015. For decades, sports economics has been set within the framework of equilibrium economics, in particular when modelling team sport leagues. Based on a conviction that this does not reflect real life, this book addresses a gap in the literature and opens up a new research area by applying concepts drawn from disequilibrium economics. The first part of the book focuses on economic disequilibrium in sports markets and competitive imbalance in sporting contests. The second part concentrates on soft budget constraints and their consequences for club governance and management. Also inclusive in this section is the Palgrave Dictionary of Emerging Markets and Transition Economics, 2015, edited by Jens Holscher and Horst Tomann and published by Palgrave Macmillan. The dictionary contains scientific rigours that addresses the needs of students, lecturers and the interested general public to quickly find definitions and explanations of topics, institutions, personalities and processes in this historical phase of changing societies, which as such is not concluded. Today newly emerging market economies try to learn from the experiences of transition economies.

 

Second part of Section 5 informs recent publications of Sanjaya Acharya. Moreover, journals associated with comparative economic societies and their recent publications are also inclusive in this section. They include European Journal of Comparative Economics, Economic Systems, Post-communist Economies, Comparative Economic Studies, European Journal of Development Research, and Economic Annals.
