Abstract

The article outlines the authors’ understanding of the formulation of the regional economic policy. Within the framework of the research, the authors examine regional authorities’ willingness to successfully implement the strategic goals of economic development. The methodological basis of the systematic, logical, and comparative analysis allows examining the opportunities and limitations of regional authorities’ influence on the development of the regional economy. The article highlights the need for improving the existing instruments of public administration (state regulation) that can contribute to the development of the economy. In this regard, the authors emphasize the problem of defining sectoral and consolidated registers of public authorities’ regulatory competencies involved in the constituent entities of the Russian Federation, and the formation of the state regulatory policy. The practical significance of the article is related to the possibility of using the research results to enhance regional authorities’ capabilities to influence the development of the economy.

Keywords: public administration instruments; regional economic development; public administration effectiveness

Abstract

We study innovation policy in a region in which the members of the creative class engage in Schumpeterian competition and thereby extend aspects of the recent analysis in Batabyal and Yoo (2017). Using the language of these researchers, the creative class is broadly composed of existing and candidate entrepreneurs. In contrast to these researchers, we suppose that R&D by candidate entrepreneurs does not generate any negative externalities. In this setting, we analyze the impact that taxes and subsidies on R&D by existing and candidate entrepreneurs have on R&D expenditures and regional economic growth.

Keywords: Creative Class, Creative Destruction, Economic Growth, Innovation Policy, R&D

Abstract

Future development of coastal and island communities is nowadays marked by two evolving trends, namely the rapid urbanization and the increasing interest in sea-related activities. Coping with these trends as well as other challenges faced in these areas (climate change, coastal erosion etc.) lies at the heart of policy concern, while has also opened up new fields of research work and concern as to the methodological aspects that can support an integrated planning view of terrestrial and marine environments and their interactions. By drawing on knowledge acquired from relative studies at a macro-regional level, this paper attempts to shift to the local level; and structure an integrated methodological approach enabling the concurrent confrontation of territorial and maritime planning issues and policy making. The paper places emphasis on testing well-established planning tools (MICMAC and MACTOR models) that are capable of perceiving, in a structured way, the integration of land and marine environments into one system as well as integration of views, interests, stakes etc. of land and maritime stakeholders. Implementation of this framework in an island region –Zakynthos Greece– designates the value of these planning tools in: feeding the planning process with valuable knowledge, emerging from the study of interaction of land and maritime subsystems as well as of respective stakeholders; and effectively supporting implementation of subsequent planning stages for building up more informed policy decisions.

Keywords: Blue growth, Integrated marine and land spatial planning, Policy, MICMAC and MACTOR models, Island regions.
