Purpose: to study the background of the basic options for the development of the modern financial crisis. Discussion: COVID-19 affects almost all aspects of the global economy.

Background and risks of occurrence and functioning financial pyramids as a type of unproductive entrepreneurship

Keywords: shadow economy, unfair entrepreneurship, financial pyramids, financial sphere, commercial scams, institutional innovations, fraud, bankruptcy, network marketing.


Purpose: to analyze the background and danger of the emergence and functioning of financial pyramids as a type of unproductive entrepreneurship. Discussion: the article deals with the problem of the existence of financial pyramids as one of the areas of shadow economic activity. A historical tour of the functioning of financial pyramids is conducted. The main regularities and institutional innovations in the sphere of “financial pyramid building” are considered. The analysis of the key features of a financial pyramid, as well as tools and methods to combat fraud in the financial sphere, is presented. Results: financial pyramids are a fairly organic product of modern “financial civilization” with a typical conflict of principals and agents. Owners of capital have to resort to the services of professional managers, but they can not constantly and completely control them. The higher the professionalism of the Manager-agent, the more opportunities he has to deceive investors-principals. As long as there is a separation of ownership and management, this problem is completely fundamentally unsolvable. However, by creating effective “rules of the game”, you can significantly reduce the attractiveness of pyramid construction, completely excluding the guilty from the business world and confiscating “unrighteous” income. When Russian pyramid builders and other actors of organized economic crime begin to receive “real” prison terms with confiscation of property, innovators will begin to move from unproductive entrepreneurship to productive one.

Keywords: self-employment, forms of employment, labor economy, state regulation, professional income, taxpayers, business activity, shadow sector.


Purpose: to evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of applying the professional income tax by self-employed taxpayers. Discussion: currently, the problem of self-employment is the most controversial form of employment in the Russian Federation. The measures taken by state authorities aimed at regulating business activity and removing it from the “shadow” sector of the economy are not regular and are mainly aimed at increasing tax revenues from this category of taxpayers. The article presents an assessment of the current state of the self-employed, as well as the main possible directions for the development of self-employment in Russia.

Purpose: to study the impact of the crisis on the financial behavior of consumers and global trends. Discussion: throughout life, a person has to face various kinds of troubles and problems from time to time. The same thing can happen with the economy. For example, an economic crisis for the economy is like flu for a person is a common and unpleasant disease, but a universal cure for it has never been invented. The crisis divided our society into three categories: it has not yet touched someone, someone has fallen in income or even lost a job or business, and the third category includes those who understand that the crisis is not only a problem, but also an opportunity. Results: the crisis does the work of financial consultants: it gives the realization that you need to be careful about earned money. So the basic concept is the same for everyone – it is savings and, if possible, investment. As a result, we can get the desire to localize production, technology, and resource supply in one territory, which will lead to an increase in the independence of these territories from the general economic, social and political system.

Objective: to identify proposals and recommendations on the economic aspects of improving environmental policies in the ASEAN countries. Discussion: this article examines environmental policy in the ASEAN countries. The most significant areas of environmental policy for the ASEAN countries to ensure environmentally sustainable development of the region have been identified. The components of the environmental policy aimed at enterprises are identified, and a set of incentives and tools for “greening” enterprises is proposed. In this paper, using General methods of scientific knowledge, we consider economic and environmental policies in the ASEAN countries, measures of state support for the greening of enterprises, the effectiveness of incentives, state assistance in compliance with regulations, and support programs for enterprises that implement environmental projects. A study of environmental policies in ASEAN countries has shown that specific efforts to support the greening of small businesses in the region are relatively rare. General policies, regulatory incentives, and financial support are not targeted at small businesses and are more accessible to large businesses. The article substantiates the importance of the policy of supporting the greening of small enterprises, its inclusion in the broader state support for small enterprises. Results: countries in the region are encouraged to monitor and evaluate the implementation of environmental policies. Green growth opportunities for small businesses should be taken into account both in planning and in institutional transformation. Two key areas are highlighted: innovations in the field of environmentally efficient products and the introduction of more energy-efficient and less material-intensive processes. Sources of financing for green growth programs for enterprises have been identified. The article provides recommendations for stimulating the greening of enterprises.
