Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are delighted to announce our guest editorship for a Special Issue on "Realizing Economic Diversification from Diverse Economic Perspectives" in the Journal of Risk and Financial Management. Given the current times of economic turbulence, high inflation, and rapid technological advancement, every economy is facing the need to search for the best economic strategy to either remain resilient or become resilient to various social, economic, ecological, and geo-political shocks.

In this context, we believe that there has never been a better time to revisit, review, and examine diverse theories of economic development, and invoke various economic paradigms and alternative theories, to identify plausible sources of economic growth that are relevant for the current generation, as well as for generations to come. Therefore, we invite researchers, academics, and practitioners to submit well-developed papers on economic growth, economic development, the role and meaning of economic diversification, and clear policy-based studies that will inform economic management at macro- and micro-levels.

We encourage manuscripts that are either theoretical, empirical, or a combination of both. Specifically, we seek studies that appreciate diverse economic perspectives, are novel, and present studies that are useful and carefully aligned to specific markets, sectors, industries, countries, or regions, with an overarching aim to inform scholars, researchers, policymakers, and economic planners on various paths to economic diversification.

We look forward to receiving your submissions and to a fruitful exchange of ideas.

The preferential regime of the Arctic Zone of the Russian Federation is the latest regulatory mechanism designed to overcome negative socio-economic trends in the macroregion. The accumulated factual data over the three-year period of this work have made it possible to make the first reasonable estimates of its effects on the regional economy. The purpose of this study is to investigate the presence of transformational changes in the relationship between employment and investment due to the introduction of the preferential regime for key sectors in the regions that are fully or partially included in the Russian Arctic. The relationship between investment and employment in regional industries was studied using least squares regression analysis using Advanced Grapher 2.2 software. The results show, firstly, significant differences in trends in the implementation of preferential treatment: increased economic specialization of some regions and diversification of the economies of other regions. Secondly, there is a slowdown in the emergence of new projects. Thirdly, the markedly different employment effects across industries and regions of the Russian Arctic, as well as the changing nature of the relationship between investment and employment, require a significant revision of regulatory measures and economic policies to maximize regime effects and achieve sustainable long-term regional development.

International Borrowing and Lending in the Presence of Oligopolistic Competition

This paper examines the implications of imperfect competition in a two-country framework where a single good is produced. Using an overlapping generation model, we analyze the effects of market structures. Specifically, one country is assumed to operate under a perfectly competitive market structure, while the other country operates under an oligopolistic market structure. Our analysis reveals that the differences in factor prices between the two countries when they are in autarky lead to intergenerational trade once their capital markets are integrated. A key finding is that the country with an oligopolistic market structure becomes a lending country, while the country with a competitive market structure becomes a borrowing country. Furthermore, we find that the country with an oligopolistic market structure, serving as a lender, experiences a current account surplus, while the country with a perfectly competitive market structure, acting as a debtor, incurs a current account deficit.
