Ever since the crucial character of this phenomenon was realized, many actions have been taken to improve the quality of education and increase innovation.The Act on Integrated Qualification System (ZSK) introduced a different order than hitherto- it did not create new institutions, but defined basic principles and standards of conduct.

Expanded Summary In terms of modern globalization and Euro-integration, for the economic growth and development of the country is important to activate business, entrepreneurial activity, increase competitiveness of companies and ensure their financial sustainability and long term stability.

Comparative analysis of Keynesian and monetarist theories

Expanded Summary In the 30s of the 20th century, the economies of Western countries had a historically unprecedented, deepest economic crisis, which led to the practical need to find means that would allow dynamic economic reproduction without deep fluctuations. The first who developed a paradigm of state regulation based on the theory of “regulated capitalism” was John Maynard Keynes. The main factor of economic development, according to Keynes, is “effective demand”, which consists of personal and industrial consumption. This choice of factors affecting the dynamics of economic development is not accidental. In the mid-thirties of the 20th century, Western economies tried to overcome the worst crisis. As is known, the economic crisis during capitalism is a crisis of overproduction of goods, capital and labor, that is, superiority of aggregate supply over aggregate demand. Criticizing the concept of the classical school that supply automatically generates de

Expanded Summary The innovative activity is the priority direction of the country's development, successful implementation of which is to overcome the economic backwardness and filling the market with different kinds of competitive products of its own production. In competitiveness research it is intended to elaborate the theoretical foundations of the clusters concept and their role in regional competitiveness.

Government Action and Economic Freedom

Summary. Fundamentally, there are only two ways of coordinating the economic activities of millions. One is central direction involving the use of coercion, so called the technique of the army and of the modern totalitarian state. The other is voluntary co-operation of individuals - the technique of the market place. As Milton Friedman, has mentioned in his public speeches, the government solution to a problem is usually as bad as the problem and very often makes a problem worse. In this paper, we are going to discuss the role of government to create a framework for the whole economy so that economic agents can benefit the most.  Key words.  Economic Freedom; Economic Freedom Index; Economic Growth; Government.  I.

Development of potential revenues of Local Self-Government in Georgia (Case of Samegrelo and Upper Svaneti Region, Georgia)

Summary. My research topic is about a very important issue in Georgia, which can provoke the development of irreversible economic processes. Geographically, a village is the smallest administrational and municipal unit and logically, if the smallest territory is affluent, the state is correspondingly wealthy. Economic advancement in Georgia largely depends on the development of local democracy and self-government. The essence and the aim of the local self-government is to create possibilities for local citizens to resolve local problems independently. It will not be possible, if the rights, responsibilities and duties of the territorial and administrational units are not clearly distributed. The main flaw of the reforms carried out so far in Georgia in the process of local democracy formation is that the local authorities are largely depended on the central government and they are not focused on realizing the interests of the local community, which is theoretically the basis of thei

Modern Trends of Development of Economic and Cultural Globalism and Main Perspectives of Georgian Economy

Summary. Future of development of national economy and business sector of any country in the modern world is connected with irreversible processes of globalization. Internationalization, transnationalization and integration processes of economic life, liberalization of foreign trade policy have become essential factors determining current status of globalization. Along with this, globalization processes are mostly contradictory and positive outcomes of such processes are mainly felt by a group of postindustrial countries. They account for the largest part that is 70-80% of the use of the global resources of raw materials and energy sources while developing countries and countries in transition mostly represent just markets for sale of products (consuming countries) and cheap labor resources. Attitude of developed states towards the developing world should be construed only on principles of equal and mutually beneficial cooperation. Globalization as a multidimensional phenomenon i
