Monopoly rent and monopoly revenue as a result of the lack of a competitive mechanism


DOI: 10.21777/2587-554X-2020-2-22-28

Annotation: In the article, the author considers the features of income distribution in situations of monopolization of the market. In such markets, due to a violation of the competitive balance, one or several very large enterprises are able to control the size and quality of the supply, as well as the price, which leads to an uneven distribution of income. The author claims that the unearned income that made and appropriated by the monopolist should be considered as monopoly rent or monopoly revenue, depending on whether this income is the result of an unfair distribution or the result of pumping wealth beyond the added value created. The author is inclined to consider various kinds of competition restrictions as the source of such phenomena as monopoly rent and monopoly revenue. The greatest attention in the article is paid to the consideration of monopoly rents and its theoretical calculation. In the calculations, it is proposed to build on the indicators achievable in conditions of perfect competition.

A model of managing the innovative activity of the company: a strategic approach


DOI: 10.21777/2587-554X-2020-2-29-37

Annotation: In the framework of this study, the absence of a systematic approach to working with innovations, the complexity of company transformation, the bureaucratization of processes, and the lengthy time frame for making decisions are identified as the main barriers in introducing innovations. According to the authors, the reason lies in the lack of new competencies for commercializing products both in the scientific community and the business environment, and among large companies. Over the past few decades, many Russian companies have not had time to adapt to new mechanisms of interaction and continue to use outdated management methods, internal resources and their own research base. This article presents the current model, which, using the strategic approach, will allow Russian companies to become more open to innovations, change their management structure and more efficiently introduce new technologies and solutions using various tools that have been widely used in Russia and the world in recent years.

The concept of formation of ecological rent


DOI: 10.21777/2587-554X-2020-2-55-63

Annotation: For the first time, a geo-economic concept of waste generation and minimization in the Arctic and other high-risk areas of nature management has been developed based on the regulation of environmental rent. It has not only regional, but also Federal and international significance. Based on the study of the experience of waste processing by enterprises of Onega, Ustyansky and other districts of the Arkhangelsk region, recommendations are formulated for the production of popular products from the waste of the timber industry. The model of optimization of mining waste is considered as part of the optimal reduction of the volume of waste dumps. It is based on a laser monitoring of the rock mass, optimization of the angle of and fixing the slope in the development of diamond deposits them after Lomonosov M. V. the Theoretical significance of the concept and its novelty, is determined for the first time developed a classification of ecological rent as a General criterion of classification of rent Resovskogo Y. V. – the source of formation. The methodology of its assessment for the first time systematically combines the normative method, analysis, comparison method and economic and mathematical modeling. The practical significance is determined by the possibility of forming a regional strategy for minimizing waste and environmental damage. The strategy is based on the noospheric scientific worldview, rent approach, classification, and methodology for assessing environmental rents.

Specifics of introducing reference pricing of water supply companies by taking into account foreign practice of tariff regulation


DOI: 10.21777/2587-554X-2020-2-64-72

Annotation: Incentive methods of tariff regulation based on benchmark pricing are being introduced in various natural monopoly infrastructure industries currently in Russia. This determined a significant increase in sales markups in the field of electricity sales because the Russian retail energy market was not ready for innovations. In this regard, the introduction of benchmark pricing in the water supply sector should first of all begin with the organizational preparation of the industry for significant changes. Therefore, the authors investigated the experience of applying incentive regulation in the UK and Germany, as advanced countries with successful reform experience. On its basis, the authors identified the main parameters of the adaptive environment, which create the basis for increasing the efficiency of the introduction of a new method of tariff regulation. First of all, this is the need to increase the operation enterprises transparency due to the conditions created by the regulators for the disclosure of information. In the author’s opinion the creation of a disclosure system should precede the introduction of reference regulation. At the end of the article, the authors identified indicators, the disclosure of which will increase the information content of the water supply sector when introducing a new regulation method.

Prospects for the development of agglomeration in kazakhstan as a complex of innovative and active territories


DOI: 10.21777/2587-554X-2020-2-73-78

Annotation: In urban planning, unlike economic conglomerate, the term “agglomeration” is adopted, referring to the accumulation of closely related settlements in conditions of extremely high population density, with the presence of a core city. In this case conditions pendular (daily) migration of the working (able-bodied) population of about 15 % of the population occupied in production are created. In addition, the share of inter-village territories in the agglomeration is much less than the territory of settlements. In Kazakhstan, a typical agglomeration is considered Shimkent and partially Almaty. In the future, according to the Regional Development Program, Astana and Aktobe settlement groups are also included in the agglomeration. However, the Regional Development Programme (RDP) uses the term “single agglomeration entity” in addition to the term agglomeration. For example, with respect to the Capital agglomeration, it is noted that the city of Karaganda tends to unite into the constituent part of the Astana agglomeration, as well as near the settlements lying near Karaganda (satellite cities, villages). They may well create a single agglomeration entity. Full formation of second level agglomerations (Aktube) is predicted only in the long term.

Performance contracts and their possible use in the process of modernizing and improving the energy efficiency of industrial enterprises


DOI: 10.21777/2587-554X-2020-2-79-84
