The Search for Middle Class Stability in a Changing World
If we apply the widest methodology, self-identification based on income and spending, the lower boundary for middle-class salaries in Russia is located somewhere in the range of 60 to 120 thousand roubles a month per capita on average. This is at the same time as Russia's average monthly salary falls below 40,000 roubles. <...> The trend [of an increasing middle class, – Ed.] that we have been observing over the past few years is sluggish. We can talk about the fact, that over the last five years, the size of Russia's middle class grew maybe just 1 to 2%. <...> The difference in income by region, among different strata of the population, is very significant, even according to official statistics. The average difference in incomes in Russia falls somewhere around a factor of 15

The Search for Middle Class Stability in a Changing World

Regional Bonds as a Tool for Implementing Infrastructure Projects and Improving Quality of Life
Ratings play a key role, the factors are all the same: rating agencies evaluate credit quality, thereby evaluating the quality of management and knowledge. The load and structure of individual federal subjects’ debt are also taken into consideration. <…> Clearly, bonds are more accessible to the more economically stable regions

Regional Bonds as a Tool for Implementing Infrastructure Projects and Improving Quality of Life
Certainly, in recent years, bank debt has been steadily replaced by municipal bonds. In 2016, bonds made up approximately 17% of regions' total debt. Last year, that figure had already risen to 25%. <…> Bonds are <…> an important instrument for achieving a healthier balance between direct subsidies from the centre and economic efficiency on location. <…> We must expand the types of regions entering the market

Commercial Reputation: When One’s Word is Not Enough
It's right to tell about yourself. The problem of Soviet products is known: candies seem to be alright, but they are packed in such a way that you don’t really want to come any closer
