Corporate Social Responsibility Brings Benefits to Business

International companies engage in social responsibility in order to to improve their reputation, be more competitive, and to gain political benefits and some degree of control over society.

Wealthy Russians Reluctant to Hand Down Business to Their Heirs

Today's big businesses in Russia may never become family dynasties.

Instead, most entrepreneurs are planning to retain control of their business for as long as possible, according to researchers from the HSE Faculty of Social Sciences and the Skolkovo Wealth Transformation Centre. For the first time ever, they examined the attitudes of Russia's major capital owners towards business and wealth succession.
