Sharoyko F.V., Chvyakin V.A. - Organizational behavior within the structure of HR management pp. 1-9


Abstract: The subject of this research is the questions of organizational behavior of company employees. Special attention is given to the assessment of the structure of organizational behavior, suggesting the determination of a set of factors that characterize communication potential of the company, management approach, and conflict behavior trends of the personnel. Deterioration in organizational behavior requires the implementation of flexible (adaptive), rather than just directive management approaches. With regards to company employees with critical indicators of its communication potential, it is necessary to introduce courses on the development of communication skills under the conditions of low budget financing. The research methodology is based on Fritz Roethlisberger’s theory on the fundamentals of Western managements, as well as the concept of organizational behavior of James J. Gibson. The main conclusions define the role and importance of communication potential of the company, management approaches, and conflict behavior trends of the personnel in assessing the structure of organizational behavior. The directive management approach generates the latent proneness to conflict, and in 75 percent of the cases leads to dysadaptation of the communication structure and significantly reduces confidence indicators between the employees. The scientific novelty consists in the substantiation of adaptive human resource management depending on the peculiarities of organizational behavior, as well as in the establishment of the role of organizational-psychological conditions of joint effort within the structure of organizational behavior.

Tsurikov V.I. - Economic approach towards deterrence of crime: Part 3. Anti-corruption strategies in modern Russia pp. 37-54


Abstract: The subject of this research is the problems of combating corruption crimes in modern Russia. The article analyzes certain measures essential for significant lowering of the current level of corruption, as well as reducing the negative impact of business corruption on the economy and society. The author challenges the popular social views, according to which the successful deterrence of corruption requires severe punitive measures, including death penalty. Special attention is given to the analysis of factors, which lead to the loss of deterrent effect of punishment. The research uses an economic approach towards crimes and penalties. Based on the obtained estimates of the expected penalty for corruption, the author demonstrates that the typical for the Russian law enforcement practice ultralow value of probability of penalty for an offence deprives the penalty of any deterrent effect. The author acquires a quantitative assessment of such threshold value of probability of penalty for corruption, the overcoming of which would allow restoring the deterrent effect of penalty and successfully reduce the number of corresponding offences. It is concluded that even the repeated reduction of the number of corruption offences, accepted by the society as great breakthrough in combating corruption, can be achieved solely by petty corruption. In such case, the total annual volume of bribes will drop by just few percentage points, which reflect in continuous negative impact of corruption on the economy. Therefore, the process of increasing the likelihood of penalty for corruption offences should certainly be accompanied by decisive measures of the government aimed at gradual revocation of the immunity the officials currently possess.

Leaning on the analysis of the current state of industrial capacity, the authors come to the conclusion that innovative modernization requires substantial investment resources, formed by enterprises themselves, as well as by financial market.

Abstract: A. G. Aganbegyan’s became an occasion for introspection on the financial situation in post-Communist Russia. The usage of extensive empirical evidence, specific facts, author’s observation, additional analytical material and theoretical foundations, demonstrates that persistent financial problems of the country are not unrelated deficiencies, but rather a systemic disorganization.

The key factors of systemic disorganization include: subjectlesness; oligarchical capitalism; deindustrialization and primitivization of the economy; nationalization and bureaucratization of the economy; separation of economic actions from the norms of ethics and fairness. The scientific novelty consists in defining the factors of systemic disorganization. The conclusion is made that the country is facing a long and difficult way towards overcoming systemic disorganization in all spheres of management and life, but it is still on a civilized market path.
