Topics for a Master Thesis or Term Papers

1. State-owned enterprises.

Several sub-topics. Empirical comparison of their performance to privately owned companies. How to evaluate non-commercial objectives? How to incentivize managers of SOEs? Modeling the double agency problem: the sovereign (i.e. taxpayer) vs. state representatives, and state representatives vs. managers.

2. Entrepreneurs: Their Motivation, Investment and Financing Decisions.

The goal of this project is to study the effect of different motivational structures on decisionmaking of entrepreneurs. In particular, it may matter whether entrepreneur have mainly pecuniary or non-pecuniary objectives. The latter might lead to conflicts of interest with outside investors (e.g. venture funds) that have only pecuniary interests. I provide a database that can be used for this project.

6. Credit Risk Modeling.

Many models for measuring credit risk of a loan or bond portfolio rely on a rating history and its relation with defaults. Since such history is not available in Russia, other models need to be applied. One alternative are structural models based on Merton (1974) On “On the Pricing of Corporate Debt: The Risk Structure of Interest Rates.” Journal of Finance (June 1974): 449–470. Any ideas on how to apply such models (and others) in emerging markets with limited information content of many stock prices and few option contracts traded are welcome.

For literature, see preliminary syllabus for Risk Management, part on credit risk at mief.hse.ru

7. Volatility, investment, and growth in natural resource exporting countries.

The hypothesis that resource abundance can lead to reduced long-term growth (the resource curse) has received much attention in the theoretical and empirical economic literature. One of the possible, but less investigated channels of a resource curse is volatility. How does it investment in various sectors (resource sector, tradable and non-tradable goods sectors) fluctuate with the world market price for natural resources? Might fixed costs of investment be another reason for the resource curse? (Theoretical model and empirical part using sectoral data.)

Алексей Девятов, Ph.D.

Тема исследования:

1.Моделирование и прогнозирование российской экономики.

Основной целью работы является построение компактной модели российской экономки для целей среднесрочного прогнозирования ключевых макроэкономических индикаторов, таких как ВВП, потребление, инвестиции, промышленное производство, инфляция, доходы и расходы федерального бюджета, и ряд других. В рамках общей постановки задачи приоритетными направлениями исследований являются:

  • Зависимость российской экономики от внешней конъюнктуры (цены на сырье и т.д.),

  • Влияние фискальной политики государства на динамику ключевых макроэкономических индикаторов,

  • Влияние монетарной политики государства на динамику ключевых макроэкономических индикаторов,

  • Влияние трансграничных потоков капитала и кредитования на динамику ключевых макроэкономических индикаторов.

Предполагается, что в своей работе студенты будут использовать одну из следующих методологий:

  • VAR - векторная авторегрессия,

  • SVAR - структурная векторная авторегрессия,

  • FAVAR - факторная векторная авторегрессия,

  • DSGE – построение модели общего динамического равновесия.
