"FEDERALIZM" #1 (77) 2015



Re-industrialization of the Russian economy or the continuation of the liberal course?

Modern problems of the domestic economy have been caused not only with sanctions, but mainly with the misguided policy of liberalization. For more than 20 years this policy was based on the idea of minimization the state’s participation in the technological upgrading of the domestic industry; in the regulation of labour relations; in labour resources’ training. As a result, domestic engineering – the basis of economic growth – is or destroyed, or is out of date to the extent, which is unable not only to respond to the challenges of the XXIth century, but as well to ensure the economic security of the country under sanctions. In this very direction operated limiting the regions’ participation in the development of industrial potential. Due to these and other reasons, the level of tasks, which should be solved in Russia, is at present very similar to those, resolved in the late 1920-s on the eve of the industrialization of Soviet industry.

Their «other»: Russian domestic inoethnic migrants in the Moscow megapolis

The concentration of migrants in the Moscow district causes tension between the host population and migrants. Consolidation potential of Moscow society the author sees in the implementation of adaptation measures and in the integration of migrants, especially of the people from the North Caucasus, whom the population treats particularly wary. The article discusses the factors, the level and the opportunities of integration in the Moscow district of domestic migrants, belonging to «visible minorities». The successful integration of immigrants is determined not only with their socio-demographic characteristics, migration experience, financial situation, but also with their value orientations, which do not differ fundamentally from those, specific for the Moscow citizens. Policy of the consolidation of the Moscow community should take into consideration the characteristics of the value orientations of the newcomers, which are not a significant barrier to their integration.

Changing the doctrine of monetary and fiscal policy under the conditions of a recession

The phenomenon of recession determines the development of the Russian economy, but the contours of macroeconomic policies, designed to overcome the recession, the central place in which is occupied with monetary and fiscal policy, can not be seen yet. The reason is that the main instruments of monetary and fiscal policy are not focused on solving this problem. The article defines basic problems of monetary and fiscal policy, highlights the main directions of their changing. As effective principles are grounded the principles of «portfolio interest» and «bad balance» in order to reduce the gap between the development of the finance and the manufacturing sectors of the economy, since the organization of economic growth only in commodity sectors and services cannot ensure long-term sustainable growth.

Keywords: budgetary policy, monetary and credit policy, «portfolio interest», recession, the principle of «bad balance», the structure of the economy

Contemporary debates on the genesis of the Russian constitutionalism

The problem of the origin of the Russian constitutionalism, the starting point, the stages of development and its characteristics always was of great importance for the representatives of the modern domestic legal science. There are two basic positions concerning the origin of Russian constitutionalism. Representatives of the first one believe that the idea of constitutionalism in Russia has its own long-time traditions dating back to centuries. The second position of the Russian constitutionalism genesis proves its borrowed nature (so-called theory of full reception). To our opinion, both approaches should be evaluated as one-sided, following in one case from absolutism of the unique and in another case of the universal characteristics of constitutionalism. The author, providing critical analysis of both theories, on the basis of axiological interpretation of constitutionalism and the epistemology of the concept of «constitutional question» defines
a starting point of the Russian constitutionalism.

Keywords: constitutional legal consciousness, constitutional question, freedom and justice, human dignity, Russian constitutionalism

The first group includes the regions where it appeared possible to harmonize the interests of state authorities and local self-government supporters. The second group has been formed of the regions where the local government developed formally, pending the adoption of the relevant federal laws. The third group consists of the regions which openly ignored the local government or put it in strict subordination.

Yakut zemstvo and order protection in 1918

The Bolshevist revolution caused the deepest crisis of Russian central power. It’s extremely low authority level in 1917-1918 has led – at the country’s border districts – to the attempts of establishing alternative forms of government authority. As a result of these attempts, the functions, earlier realized by the central government, have been reallocated from the capital of the Russian state to its periphery. The author, on the example of Yakutia, which at this period had no central government authorities, illustrates how Yakut Zemstvo solved the problem of self-defense organization and thus acted as the main regional authority. On the basis of archival and published documents and memoirs the paper for the first time in Yakut historiography examines the questions of forming and activity of Yakut regional zemstvo police, the situation with its discipline and its participation in the fighting for the town in June 1918.

Keywords: Civil war, organization of self-defense, Police of zemstvo, zemstvo in Yakutia, Yakut region

The process of zemstvo implementation within the territory of Russian Empire provinces was inseparably linked with the election process development and the participation peasants in zemstvo elections. In the article, on the example of Smolensk province, the author shows that the election process was often accompanied with the bribery of peasants by the gentry and the merchants. Relations between the members of zemstvo were very complicated; they were the representatives of various social stratums of Russia. Often there was the struggling in so-called «zemstvo parties» – groups of zemstvo members, which were connected with the unity of the way of thinking, sympathy and dislikes. The most part of the zemstvo consisted of the gentry and within Smolensk zemstvo was presented the struggle of different social groups and the latter reflected the complicated modernization process in the country.

Perfection of the principles of state-territorial structure of the Russian Federation

The basis of state-territorial structure is formed with the relationship between central government and regional governments. Today, the state-territorial system of Russia is characterized with a complex interplay of national and territorial factors. Despite the constitutional provision on equality of the Federation member-states, there are enough reasons to speak about the benefit position of the republics within the Russian Federation. The article substantiates the thesis of the need to form a symmetrical federation with the optimal state-territorial structure. However, the creation of a symmetrical federation requires the formation of certain prerequisites and time, that’s why simplified solutions are unacceptable.

Keywords: federalism, federation, form of state organization, principals of the state division, subject of the Russian Federation
