Evolution of the Banking System in the Russian Context: An Institutional View

Abstract: We undertook an institutional analysis of commercial banks in Russia. After the failed experiment with private financial intermediation in the 1990s, Russia migrated towards a banking system consisting of three — rather than two — tiers and featuring core institutions controlled by the state directly or indirectly. This evolution is consistent with this country’s historical pattern of financial intermediation. It is also in line with recent trends in the real sector of the economy, where public ownership has rebounded over the past decade. The core state-controlled banks have evolved into hybrid institutions, performing two various sets of functions: those of regular commercial banks and of policy banks. We found a similar evolution in China, but not in the transitional economies of central Europe. Institutional matrix theory suggests that, in non-market economies, centralized finance and credit allocation is the dominant institutional form, while private banking activity is complementary.

On the choice of measures of reliability and validity in the content-analysis of texts // Quality & Quantity. 2013. September.(Springer).

The paper discusses several reliability measures: Scott’s pi, Krippendorff’s alpha, free marginal adjustment (Bennett, Alpert and Goldstein’s S S ), Cohen’s kappa, and Perreault and Leigh’s I I and the assumptions on which they are based. It is suggested that correlation coefficients between, on one hand, the distribution of qualitative codes and, on the other hand, word co-occurrences and the distribution of the categories identified with the help of the dictionary based on substitution complement the other reliability measures. The paper shows that the choice of the reliability measure depends on the format of the text (stylistic versus rhetorical) and the type of reading (comprehension versus interpretation). Namely, Cohen’s kappa and Bennett, Alpert and Goldstein’s S S emerge as reliability measures particularly suited for perspectival reading of rhetorical texts. Outcomes of the content analysis of 57 texts performed by four coders with the help of computer program QDA Miner inform the analysis.

New systemic institutional approach for comparative political and economic analysis
Presentation. Union for Radical Political Economy at Allied Social Sciences Association conference. January 4-6, 2013. San Diego, CA, the United States of America

An idea that modern economics as necessarily based on market capitalism continues to dominate in scientific-scholarly discourse. The objective of this presentation is to present an Institutional Matrix Theory, or X- and Y-theory as an alternative systemic institutional approach to economic and political development. It puts forward some new arguments to explain ‘grassroots resistance’ to the deep marketization in many societies and answers the question “why capitalism triumphs in the West and fails everywhere else”.

Keywords: systemic institutional approach, comparative analysis
