Project
Currently the phenomenon of broadly defined state-owned enterprises existing as elements of the economic system, and the phenomenon of using ownership tools as part of state economic policy are becoming so significant that if economic science overlooks them, it will inevitably lead to incomplete or even false description and understanding of contemporary economic systems. This state of affairs poses new challenges to the economic science and creates important and valid research problems. The proposed project is going to meet this challenge and its main research objective is an analysis of the phenomenon of the return of state-owned enterprises, to be conducted in two dimensions: a) empirical – identifying the scale (intensity) and extent of that phenomenon in selected economies, b) theoretical – identifying the causes for this phenomenon, its characteristics, consequences, and its impact on the economic theory and the theory of economic policy.
Project
Cross-country comparative study on relations between the quality of economic system measured by its ability to generate development and well-being of society and the level of statism in the country's economic policy.
Project
To register all fields of deminishing and weekening of the private sector in the economy (direct and indirect) and clarify its causes. To observe the growing space and role of the state-owned and state-controlled secor.
