Property assembly: Using science to get condo unit owners and developers to be friends

In his recently published study, Roman Zakharenko, an Associate Professor at ICEF, comes up with a way to improve urban economy. He offers a solution to the never-ending conflict around ageing condos that are targets for redevelopment. We asked Roman to tell more about his solution, why multi-storey neighborhoods are doomed and how urban life is affected by vertical systems of power.

Neighbours: Who is Close to HSE in Rankings. Economics

We continue talking about universities that are alongside HSE in the 51–100 group in various subject areas in the QS ranking. Today we have economists speaking about their ‘neighbours in the ranking’.

Welcome Aboard: Tenure-Track Introductions

Every year The HSE Look continues its tradition of welcoming newly recruited international faculty via short summaries about their positions and research interests. In the 34th issue we introduce the tenure-track faculty members, and in November you can learn more about post-doctoral researchers who are starting their work at HSE this fall.

HSE Researchers Receive Gaidar Award for Young Economists

HSE Professors Alexander Tarasov and Roman Zakharenko have received the Gaidar Award for Young Economists for their article on the connection between trade costs and defense spending. A special award also went to the paper ‘Bad News: An Experimental Study on the Informational Effects of Rewards,’ whose authors include HSE Associate Professor Anton Suvorov. 

115 million dollars

is the amount by which defence spending is reduced around the world for every additional one billion dollars traded between Russia and the United States.
