THEORY OF BALANCE OF RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITY OF OFFICIALS – NECESSARY SCIENTIFIC BASIS ERADICATING ECONOMIC FASCISM AND CRIMINAL BUSINESS

Expanded Summary  In scientific work, the Theory of balance of rights and responsibility of officials is considered as a necessary scientific basis for the eradication of economic fascism and criminal business in society and in the state. The reason for the occurrence in the modern world of economic fascism is the economic aim – the economic purposefulness – of the functioning of society and the state (?!). Consequently, the "supremacy" – domination – of money, market, profit, capital over a person in society and in the state, characteristic of the essential nature of capitalism, is a manifestation of economic fascism (?!). Moreover, the theoretical "grounding" and "justification" of economic fascism is given in the so-called "Invisible Hand" of the famous Adam Smith (?!). As for the followers of the founder of classical political economy – the famous Adam Smith, who is at the same time the founder and “bleach” of economic fascism,

GEORGIA BEFORE THE COLLAPSE OF THE USSR: A COMPARATIVE ASPECT

(Was welfare in Georgia higher than the USSR average?)  Expanded Summary  After the collapse of the USSR, the republics that gained independence began to take an independent path of development. The problems that they face along this path, the Russian Federation, as the successor of the USSR, are completely attributed to them, while the “contribution” of Russia itself to the problems that arise is by no means insignificant. In particular, the goal of such a policy towards Georgia is to present the situation in such a way that Georgia lived at the expense of other republics, in particular, at the expense of Russia in the Soviet period, and, secondly, to explain the difficult economic situation of Georgia in the post-Soviet period as the exceptional "merit" of Georgia itself and the result of the fact that Russia no longer contains it. The purpose of this position is to generate nostalgia for the USSR population in Georgia, which fully fits into the Chubais

“Dont Lose Life in a Rural areas, You Will destroythe City”

annotation Peasants are one of the powerful tools of preserving the nation's identity. Peasants are often regarded simply as agricultural producers, but their role goes beyond these frameworks. Peasants, especially in Georgia, cannot be seen as a means to an end - they should only be seen as an end. The Georgian village has been severely depleted due to poor social-economic (including agricultural and rural development) policies implemented in recent years. Under such conditions, it is virtually impossible to stop the increased migration of the population from the villages, to get out of the agrarian crisis, and to develop them without proper safeguards and external support. Only real systemic employment and complex measures can be achieved through real employment in rural areas and a relatively short period of socio-economic development. One of them is the promotion of entrepreneurial activity of human resources. As a rule, functions that are not provided with self-regulatory

Conflict Management Impact on Employee Behavior

Summary Nowadays changes in a personal life are the inseparable part of everyone. We observe changes in every environment: in politics as well as economy and technology.

Vast majority of researches prove that conflict affects employees. Therefore, conflict management is crucial for managers and can be quite challenging. There are different types of conflict.

Fiscal Policy Multiplier Calculation Using Input-Output Tables for Georgia

Expanded Summary Fiscal multipliers are used to estimate the effectiveness of fiscal policy (Samuelson, P.A. 1948). Due to the complexity of the fiscal policy and transmission mechanisms, existing estimates of multipliers in the literature vary widely from negative to positive numbers. Those who are skeptical about the effectiveness of discretionary fiscal policy mainly refer to those academic papers resulting in smaller fiscal multipliers, while those who believe in the effectiveness of fiscal policy rely on the research that yields larger multipliers. This article represents another step forward in a discussion about the empirical assessment of fiscal effects for Georgia. Both, applied theoretical and empirical literature, have shown that the general economic situation and the positioning of monetary policy influence the fiscal multiplier (Blanchard, O., Perotti, R. 2002).

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
