Alcohol Trade Restrictions and Alcohol Consumption: On the Effectiveness of State Policy

The paper analyzes the impact of nighttime alcohol trade restrictions in regions of Russia on the consumption of alcoholic beverages. Evaluation has been carried out based on the regional Rosstat data and individual data of the Russia Longitudinal Monitoring Survey by the HSE for 2009–2010. Econometric analysis has revealed a positive correlation between the amount of consumed alcohol and the duration of the allowed time for alcohol sales in the region. In addition, it has been found that night restrictions are more efficient than morning restrictions in the context of a decrease in alcohol consumption. The obtained results indicate the expediency of further tightening of the restrictive policy.

Allotment in First-Price Auctions: An Experimental Investigation

We experimentally study the effects of allotment—the division of an item into homogeneous units—in independent private value auctions. We compare a bundling first-price auction with two equivalent treatments where allotment is implemented: a two-unit discriminatory auction and two simultaneous single-unit first-price auctions. We find that allotment in the form of a discriminatory auction generates a loss of efficiency with respect to bundling. In the allotment treatments, we observe large and persistent bid spread, and the discriminatory auction is less efficient than simultaneous auctions. We provide a unified interpretation of our results that is based on both a non-equilibrium response to the coordination problem characterizing the simultaneous auction format and a general class of behavioral preferences that includes risk aversion, joy of winning and loser’s regret as specific cases. © 2016 Economic Science Association

Clusters as Innovative Melting Pots?—the Meaning of Cluster Management for Knowledge Diffusion in Clusters

There is broad consensus that economic development and society welfare correlate with the effectiveness and efficiency of countries’ science, technology, and innovation infrastructure. There is a broad range of actors active in all fields with diverging ambitions, missions, and aims striving for scientific, technological, and innovation excellence. Still one actor alone faces severe challenges in the respective global competition which is why increasingly clusters are formed and quipped with professional management. This raises the question if knowledge diffusion channels function more effective and efficient in organically grown self-organized channels or if targeted public policy intervention is needed to enhance these channels by means of attached cluster management. The article discusses the major conceptual features of cluster management and spillovers and the resulting implications for cluster management activities.

Collective Organizational Efficacy and Collective Work Engagement in Internationalized Companies: The Moderating Role of Specific Collective Organizational Efficacy

The study examines whether the positive relationship, observed in previous study, between self-efficacy and work engagement is observed also at the collective level, between collective organizational efficacy and collective work engagement. Moreover, the moderating role of specific collective organizational efficacy is analysed. A questionnaire, administered to 358 employees from 13 Italian companies of the Food & Beverage sector, included three scales: 1) general collective organizational efficacy scale (Bohn, 2010); 2) specific collective organizational efficacy in internationalization, developed for the present study, and 3) collective work engagement scale. Results showed a positive relationship between collective organizational efficacy and collective work engagement. Specific collective organizational efficacy moderates the effect only for the vigor and absorption dimensions of collective work engagement, suggesting that employees are engaged in their job when they perceive that the organization is very effective, or ineffective, in general and in a specific task. The practical implications of the results of the present study are discussed.

Companies intangibles: Unique versus generic

В эпоху экономики знаний нематериальные активы считаются ключевыми драйверами стоимости. Мы предлагаем инструмент для выделения компаний, имеющих уникальные нематериальные активы (в отличие от общедоступных). Подобная способность определяет качество нематериальных активов. Для проверки того, являются ли эти способности результатом навыка мы используем бутстрап-подход к инференции. Наши результаты показывают, что только 22% компаний обладают навыками создания знания. Практическая применимость иллюстрируется составлением портфеля компаний, способных к созданию знаний. Этот портфель демонстрирует более высокую доходность, коэффициент Шарпа и меньшую просадку , чем индекс S&P500.    …

Creating sustainable impact from Foresight on STI Policy

Purpose – Foresight is frequently used to establish science and technology investment priorities and develop corresponding technology and innovation support programmes. In the light of technology and innovation policy, many individual Foresight studies are undertaken which are separate and little linked with the broader policy scope and ambition. This paper aims to look at an approach towards a consistent Foresight system which is linked closely to science, technology and innovation policy.

Design/methodology/approach – The paper provides an in-depth case study of the Russian Foresight system. The case study is based on desk research and extensive experience of the authors with the system.

Findings – Russia has developed a systematic approach towards organising Foresight which involves and serves multiple stakeholders, including government, ministries, federal and regional agencies, higher education institutions, public research institutes, state-owned companies and private businesses and a large range of associations. Under the auspicious of a dedicated commission, targeted Foresight is undertaken with clearly defined scope for each. The paper finds that the Russian system is unique in its organisational structure and in the integration of Foresight with science, technology and innovation policy measures.

Originality/value – The paper describes all facets of the Russian Foresight system which has not been done before. It also outlines the practical steps to further develop and leverage the system.

Development of a KPI subsystem for a Russian confectionery company: a case study

The article presents a case study of KPI subsystem development based on the application of methods and tools of lean production in a Russian confectionery factory. We report on an analysis of production problems at the enterprise, as well as proposed solutions and results of their implementation. The lean KPI subsystem resulted in significant improvements in the company. The results of this case study are relevant for business practices in general, as the proposed measures can be used to improve a company’s investment attractiveness. Additionally, the findings are useful for lean managers working in the confectionery industry, as our study illustrates key success factors, as well as the impact and role of lean manufacturing in this industry.

The paper investigates the questions about social organization of work behavior in the Russian companies. Focus in research was made on desirable and obligatory behavior, work standards and determinants of different types of organizational behavior. Survey of 1423 employees presents all key industries of the Russian business, performing within the main federal districts. The results show that the domination of the mercantile and consumer attitude to work as means of achievement of material welfare is not the socio-cultural phenomenon only, but also the result of social and economic conditions in the work sphere. The examined distinction of interests, demands and standards of behavior for representatives of various professions represents one of the deepest contradictions of the development processes of working sphere in Russian society. The research found out deep deformations in the sphere of working activity of employees in the Russian companies.  …
