Kirdina-Chandler Svetlana. The Meso Level: A New Look in Economics? (in Russian) Working paper. Moscow: RAS, Institute of Economics, 2017

The paper considers the features of the modern understanding of the meso level in economics, which complements the traditional dichotomy of the micro and macro levels in economic theory. Various approaches to the definition of the meso level in Russian-language and English-language literature are included. Particular attention is paid to the specifics of how the meso level is understood in orthodox and heterodox economics. The reasons why meso level studies are becoming more widespread are discussed. It also shows how a new view from the perspective of the meso level makes it possible to rethink the theses of already held concepts in a new way. In this context, the hypothesis of institutional dissonance is tested. Also, the constructive role of the concept of institutional dissonance in the terminological system of the institutional matrices theory (X-Y-theory), and its resultant significance in analysing the process of institutional change, is noted. In conclusion, the tasks for further research on institutional dissonances within the framework of the Scientific Research Plan of the Institute of Economics of the Russian Academy of Sciences "The Phenomenon of Meso Level in Economic Analysis: New Theories and Their Practical Application" are identified.

Keywords: meso-level of economic analysis, heterodox economics, methodological institutionalism, institutional dissonance, institutional matrices theory (X-Y-theory)

   

Svetlana G. Kirdina-Chandler. Radical Institutional Economics and Fakery for the 21st Century // Journal for Institutional Studies. 2017. Vol. 9 (no. 4), P. 6-15.


The article summarises some results of the discussions about radical institutional economics (RIE) for the 21st century. The discussions took place at the 38th Conference of the Association for Institutional Thought, held in April 2017 (San Francisco, California, US). The contribution of radical institutional economists of the 1990s in the development of institutional thought is presented in the article. The works of William M. Dugger – the founder of RIE – are stressed, as well as the roles of other radical institutionalists such as Edythe Miller, J. Ron Stanfield, Ron Phillips, Dell Champlin, Janice Peterson, Charles Whalen, Doug Brown, Rick Tilman, Louis Junker and Howard Sherman. The reasons for the reintroduction of radical institutional economics onto the agenda in the modern US are considered, among them being the increasing fakery in economies and the growth of inequality in incomes and distribution of economic benefits. The article then suggests a hypothesis that an external factor in the radicalisation of science and public consciousness in Western and other countries is associated with a change in world leaders and poles of growth, and is a turning point in history. It is argued that the power of countries in which the X-matrix dominates is beginning to surpass the influence of countries where the Y-matrix dominates.

The paper considers institutional models that define the macroeconomic policies for real sector financing as well as the R&D financing serving further as a technological base for real sector development in various nation-states. The hypothesis is tested that two institutional models in these spheres could be singled out, so called “a state as the main investor” and “a state as the regulator”. To check this hypothesis, data about the 20-year dynamics of financing in Russia (and China) and in the USA are used. Institutional matrices theory, or X- and Y-theory (Kirdina, 2012) is used to explain the differences. In this regard, a reflection of the investment characteristics in national statistics of the two countries due to institutional differences is also discussed.

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
