The influence of the fiscal policy on national savings: time series analyses for the Kyrgyz economy The project examines the influence of the public sector on the national savings, which is an empirical question. It determines the role of income and money in private consumption, the level of influence of the state consumer policy, and the levels of influence of public savings on private ones.

Energy demand in Kazakhstan until 2020 The purpose of our study is to estimate and forecast Kazakhstan's energy demand and to evaluate its implications for the utilization of the country's natural gas resources. We expect that our study will show significant (hidden) domestic demand for natural gas, which may help resolve the problem of its utilization. This hidden domestic demand originates from the substitution of coal with natural gas in electricity and heat generation.

Firm investment under restricted capital markets: the case of Ukraine This research aims to analyze firm-level investment under undeveloped capital markets in a transition economy. The methodology of this research, unlike most of the investment literature, does not employ Tobin's Q approach. Instead, we choose basic investment model with an additional constraint on investment. Imposing and later rejecting the assumption of whether this constraint is binding gives us two alternative models of investment, which can be tested empirically.

Ukrainian international trade: How far from the potential? This research will use a gravity model to study Ukrainian international trade patterns and structure. Today, when Ukraine is choosing between custom unions (existing EU and potential Common Economic Area), economic considerations play only secondary role. Closer examination of possible benefits and costs of participation in trade blocks as well as study of the cost (benefits) of tariff and non-tariff barriers should build an economic foundation for these vital decisions. In this research, I will concentrate оn predicting potential trade flows and the delineating distortion brought in by different factors. The model will use aggregated trade flows as well as industry / pro~uc market level data.

Asymmetric shocks and currency union of Belarus and Russia This project will provide theoretical and empirical analyses of the asymmetric shocks effect, namely the growth (or fall) in the world fuel prices and related changes in the terms of trade, on the dynamics of real exchange rate and output in Belarus under conditions of the currency union of Belarus and Russia.

Study of the exchange rate pass-through to prices in Ukraine The study will allow identification and evaluation of factors influencing a major source of successful import substitution in the Ukrainian economy - devaluation. Expected policy recommendations deal with potential for further use of exchange rate policy and competition promotion in different sectors of the Ukrainian economy. Exchange rate elasticity to import and overall prices will be evaluated.

Measuring asymmetry in the response of gasoline prices to oil price changes. Russian evidence Some empirical studies have shown that output prices tend to respond faster to input price increases than to decreases. The purpose of this work is to reveal whether there is an asymmetry between gasoline price changes and fluctuations in oil prices in Russia.

Probability of bank failure: the Russian case In this study we develop a formal model for bank failure prediction. We use a logit model to estimate the probability of a bank's failure and a proportional hazard model to identify survival time using Russian banking sector data. Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) is used to estimate the banks' relative efficiency scores and include these scores with other indicators into mentioned above models

Bargaining process during federal budget adoption in Russia The main objective of this research is to develop a model of the budgeting process in the sphere of government-parliament interactions. The research would aim both at a theoretical analysis of the budget process, and an empirical investigation of the budgeting process in Russia. Policy implications, including identification of factors affecting the rules of the budgeting process as well as recommendations related to legislative regulation of this process, will be presented.

Interregional wage differences in Russia The modern Russian economy is characterized by stable and deep disparities in the level of real wage across the regions. This project shows that this can be explained by domination of a natural resource extracting industry in a region's economy. Therefore, the stimulating function of the real wage is weakened. It also leads to the growth of social unrest.
