Keleinikova S.V., Samygin D.Y., Bulycheva Y.V. - Models of the Organizational and Economic Development Mechanism of the Regional Vegetables Market pp. 11-23


Abstract: Nowadays in Russia there is no satisfaction of needs of the population in vegetable products, which consumption is almost a half less than required standards. The main reasons are low level of vegetable production and the purchasing power of the population, which is associated with a low level of development of market infrastructure. The investigation was performed according to data about manufacturers of vegetable production of the Republic of Mordovia. In this article were used the Herfindahl-Hirschman Index, index Linda, technique of the analysis of market potential, economic-mathematical methods of extrapolation of trends and optimization of production. The necessity of improving the mechanisms of agrofood policy on market vegetables, showing characteristics and existing problems of effective functioning of vegetable subcomplex, summarizes the main factors of development of the market of vegetable production, formed the methodology and held on its analysis and assessment of the State of competition Wednesday at the vegetable market in the Republic of Mordovia, developed models to optimize the structure of sown areas under vegetables in agricultural enterprises, in the assessment of the market potential of vegetable growing on the organizational structure of the wholesale food market. Results of the study will be useful to the authorities for the formation of food policy on the vegetables market, because they allow to identify promising areas and positions in sales of vegetable products, that stimulate their further production.
Andreeva T., Astanina L. - Organization of the regulatory and infrastructure support of cluster projects of the Siberian Federal District pp. 14-27


Abstract: The subject of this research is the organization of regulatory, financial and infrastructure support of cluster projects of the Siberian Federal District (SFD). The object of this research is the projects of innovative clusters of SFD subjects, which comprise a group of pilot clusters of the Russian Federation or clusters that are leaders in the world-class investment attractiveness. The authors meticulously examine the existing government measures of organizational, regulatory, financial and infrastructure support of cluster projects, centers of cluster development, external organizations that provide infrastructure support, as well as presence of infrastructure themes of projects of the SFD cluster formations themselves. Special attention is given to the systematization, analysis and determination of differences in provision of the SFD subjects with organizational, regulatory, financial and infrastructure support of execution of cluster projects. A conclusion is made that there is sufficient existing organizational, regulatory and infrastructure support of execution of the cluster projects. The author’s special contribution into the research of this topic consists in structuring and generalization of information regarding the existing organizational, regulatory and infrastructure support of cluster projects of the examined SFD subjects, and formulation of differences of the level of the provided support based on the analysis of the acquired data.

Gushchenskaya N.D., Mukhina E.G., Sumarokova M.A. - The Methodological Approach to Evaluating the Dynamics of Agricultural Credit Cooperatives' Development in the Russian Federation pp. 46-53


Abstract: The authors of the article offer their own method of evaluating the dynamics of agricultural credit cooperatives' development in the Russian Federation. The method is based on the system that consists of absolute indicators of the scale, and relative indicators of the intensity and efficiency of cooperatives' development in a particular territory. For each indicator, the authors suggest to assess the average annual growth factor which allows to assess the average dynamics of each indicator for a certain period of time. To make a rating, the authors suggest indicators of credit cooperatives' development and their threshold values. Using the nonparametric indicator of the correlation ratio (using the Spearman's coefficient), the authors assess the level of the correlation ratio of factual indicator values in relation to threhold values. The research is based on general research methods (analysis, synthesis, induction, deduction, observation) as well as methods of statistically economic analysis (analysis of statistical series, correlation analysis). The results of the research allow to describe peculiarities of the development of agricultural credit cooperatives in the federal districts of the country, to define the 'leaders' and evaluate 'strong' and 'weak' points, and, consequently, to define vectors for its development in the future. The advantage of the method is its universal nature because it may be used to describe the rating not only within the country but also within a particular federal district or other territory. The other distinctive feature of the meethod is its 'mobility' in terms of indicators being used.

Abstract: Due to its geographical position and an array of cultural, historical and natural sights the Republic of Mordovia presents a considerable interest to tourists, however, the Republic’s traditional concern with manufacture of agricultural products has put tourism aside as economi-cally insignificant industry. Nevertheless, the need for creating a competitive tourist guidance facilities is proved by international and domestic nation-wide positive tendencies in the devel-opment of tourism as one of the most promising industries of the world economy, as well as by its wide multiplier effect, providing a stimulating effect on related industries such as transport, construction engineering, production and sale of souvenirs, agriculture, public catering industry, insurance, etc. The paper reveals the competitive advantages of the Republic of Mordovia and presents the results of the SWOT-analysis of development of tourist facilities and assessment of tourist-recreational potential of the region. The research is based on the systems approach with application of comparative analysis and economic-statistical methods. The authors substantiate the necessity for intensive activities aimed at broadening competitive position and creating conditions that extend the Republic’s competitiveness in the market of tourist services. The main conclusion of the study is that the authors underscore that only the use of state incentives adequate to new realities and support measures for tourism, formulation of necessary legal, institutional and economic basis will help to increase the competitiveness of the Republic of Mordovia in the market of tourist services.
Balandina S.V., Ryabova S.G. - Incomes and Living Standards at the Regional Level pp. 73-83


Abstract: The problem of raising living standards and reducing the income disparity in Russian regions is one of the most pressing. It is quite natural since a sharp break in living conditions based on the territorial principle is unacceptable. The authors of the article show the dynamics of cash incomes and expenditures of Mordovian citizens and also the results of a comparative analysis of the Volga Federal District on individual indicators reflecting living standards. The authors concluded that the standard of living in the country remains low, and focus on the negative trends that are emerging in the country in the field of income generation and distribution of public spending, and also on the growing income disparity. The research is based on the systems approach using comparative analysis and economic and statistical methods. The research involved data of The Federal State Statistics Service and Local Agency of Federal State Statistics Service of the Republic of Mordovia. The authors emphasized the need for active measures aimed at improving living standards in the region and creation of conditions that would contribute to the reduction of income disparity. The main conclusion of the reseasrch is that only application of adequate state control measures and establishment of necessary legal, institutional and economic grounds would improve the standard of living. 
Napolskikh D.L. - Institutional Aspects of Modeling Regional Industrial Clusters pp. 81-88


Abstract: This research deals with the methodological approaches to modeling of institutional interactions of economic agents of regional industrial clusters. A hypothesis is advanced that the analysis of the institutional environment structure makes it possible to determine the stage of clusters life cycle and the direction of clustering processes within the economic space. A refined classification of cluster economic agents is given in terms of their role in implementing the cluster policy of the region. Particular attention is paid to the organizational forms of economic activity of participants in regional industrial clusters. Three types of institutional interactions of economic agents of the cluster are identified. The models of institutional interactions of economic agents at various stages of the life cycle of a regional industrial cluster have been developed. In the course of the research, the possibility of applying the methodological potential of the institutional theory under the scientific task of modeling regional industrial clusters is substantiated. Within the framework of the institutional structure of economic agents of cluster are identified four stages of the life cycle: innovation, infrastructural, competitive and transformational. The result of the analysis shows that in the process of institutional interactions, the economic agents of the cluster form in relation to each other either a stimulating or a development-limiting strategy.
Cheremisinova D.V., Krichevets E.A., Ryabchenko D.S. - Development of a model of short-term liquidity for wineries pp. 92-104


Abstract: The goal of this research is the development of a multifactor regression model based on financial indexes that take into account the specificity of economic and financial activity of winemaking industry for formulation of assessment methodology of the current liquidity. The object of this research became the 40 largest winery assets in the Republic of Crimea, federal city of Sevastopol, and Krasnodar Region. The authors put forth a hypothesis that the structure of current assets, presence and capacity of own and loan funding sources, their maturity and seasonal character, must be considered in assessing the score of short-term liquidity for the wineries. The foundation for this research is the classical method of stochastic modeling of economic activity, namely the correlation and regression analysis. The main contribution of the authors consists in the selection of factors that would consider the specifics of work of the winemaking enterprises, structure of their assets and funding sources; development of regression model for quantitative assessment of the impact of factors upon the level of current liquidity of wineries overall.

Melezhechkina Y.Y., Or'kina T.G. - Assessment of Tax Security in the Republic of Mordovia pp. 135-142


Abstract: in their research the authors underline that there is not enough research devoted to the indicative analysis of regional tax security. The fact that there is no stable tax system, indicators or treshold amounts, complete theoretical or practical basis for analysing tax security proves the need to conduct an in-depth research that involves an indicative analysis in this sphere. The authors present a set of indicators to describe the status of tax security in territories whch can be assessed based on the analysis of open information sources. Using the aforesaid indicators, the authors have carried out analysis of tax security in the Republic of Mordovia over the period since 2010 till 2014. The authors use indicators calculated based on the Russian Federation data as treshold values. In the course of the research the authors have also used general research methods and methods of indicative analysis. The information basis of the research involves data of the Federal Tax Service of Russia as wll as Department of the Federal Tax Service of Russia for the Republic of Mordovia. As a result of the research, the author proves the need to extend a set of tax security indicators taking into account indicators used in foreign practice, in particular: integrated complete value-added tax rate; tax wedge; and tax elasticity ratio. The authors also carried out an assessment of tax elasticity based on the data for the Russian Federation and Republic of Mordovia over the period since 2010 till 2014. Results of the analysis of the indicators for the Republic of Mordovia prove the fact that there is a high rate of taxpayers' debt and low independence of a regional budget.

Shakirova R.K. - Institutional Environment of Regional Industry Clustering pp. 163-175


Abstract: The object of the research is the process of formation of regional industry clusters, the subject of the research is the institutional environment that affect the formation and development of clusters in the regions. The author of the article considers theoretical aspects of topics related to the concept of "institution" and "institutional environment". In particular, she outlines the main qualifying features of the concept "institution", methods of classification of institutions, highlights the basic elements of the institutional environment of regional cluster development. Special attention is paid to the algorithm used to analyze the institutional environment of regional clustering. The main research method involves a set of abstract-logical methods (induction and deduction, analysis and synthesis, analogy and comparison, formalisation and modelling). The main conclusion of the research is that for the initial stage of studying the institutional environment of the cluster it is better to divide institutions into different groups depending on their level of formalization and level of control. The scientific novelty of the research is caused by the fact that the author defines elements of the institutional environment for cluster development of the regions, and also develops the algorithm for this kind of analysis.
