Semantic core of the brand of territories

Keywords: brand, territory brand, territory branding, semantics, semantic core, site, portal, statistics.


Purpose: to consider the semantic core of the urban identity and brand of the territory. Discussion: the article discusses the term “semantic core” as a tool for building a brand of territories, promoting it on the Internet and developing a promising direction for the work of modern territorial branding on the example of the Lipetsk region. Results: The Lipetsk region is highly dependent on the “domestic consumer”, search queries in most cases are of a local nature, which, in our opinion, is a deterrent in the brand promotion strategy of the territories. The semantic core method can also reduce the cost of promoting the brand of territories with CEO and SMM, if key queries for specific regions are introduced into the materials of sites and portals. A feature of the work in the formation of the brand of the territory is its multipolarity, vastness and difference in the views of different categories.

Keywords: regional policy, socio-economic policy, regional society, position, sustainable development, territories, efficiency growth, business.


Purpose: to consider modern approaches to the assessment of regional socio-economic policy. Discussion: the relevance of the study is related to the need for a qualitative increase in the effectiveness of regional socio-economic policy in the context of overcoming its phenomenological nature and giving territorial socio-economic processes a controlled positive dynamics.

The solution to this problem lies in the proposal and implementation of a subject-partner approach, in which the population of the territory and its subjects become key initiators, actors and beneficiaries of socio-economic processes. Results: substantiation of the need for a transition to a subject-partner type and a qualitative change in the subjective role of the population as a partner of the subjects of government, economy and business in spatial economic formations as a critical factor and determinant for the implementation of the goals and priorities of sustainable development of the territory (space) ; demarcation of targeted decisions of regional socio-economic policy within the framework of object-resource and subject-partner management approaches; identification of the features of the implementation of the subject-partner role of the population of the territory in the processes of development, implementation, evaluation of the effectiveness and adjustment of the content of the regional socio-economic policy; characterization of the main directions of systemic support and development of the regional society as a “tree of sustainable development goals” and an integrated strategic result of the implementation of the regional socio-economic policy.

Keywords: marketing audit, consumer activity, target audience, real estate, business process, construction company, investors, customer experience.


Purpose: audit of negative customer experience and limiting factors in the acquisition of residential real estate. Discussion: the modern market of new buildings in Russia is characterized by the passage of a stage of high turbulence, a strong influence of macroeconomic and geopolitical challenges and a simultaneous decrease in the capacity and solvency of demand. In such conditions, marketing research aimed at updating the portrait of the target audience, its consumer preferences and key factors of choice is of priority. Results: more than half of all potential requests that did not end up as apartment buyers were generated by a fairly young generation – people aged 20-34. Women have become much more active in choosing apartments, but they are less resolute in making a final decision and more often do not make a purchase for various reasons. The vast majority of all those who applied for a purchase were going to purchase an apartment for personal residence. The housing strategy of the target audience over the past year has changed towards permanent residence, the share of investors has greatly decreased. All of these factors must be taken into account when building business processes in the sales departments of developers, prepare the necessary materials to work out typical objections.

Keywords: agro-food complex, food security, agro-inflation, integration strategies, self-sufficiency, innovative development, import substitution, food system.


Purpose: to compare and analyze international trends in stimulating the reduction in the growth rate of agroinflation in the conditions of the crisis of the world food system. Discussion: the course of the research, methods of system, comparative and factor analysis, individual elements of the method of grouping, generalization and systematization were used.  As part of the study, based on an analysis of a number of key documents in force on the territory of the European Union, it was revealed that in order to reduce the pace of agro-inflation in the EU countries, it is planned to use integration practices to create new value chains and strengthen the relationship between regional innovation ecosystems. Unlike the European Union, in the People’s Republic of China, when solving the problem of ensuring food security, they adhere to an isolation strategy based on building an economy independent of foreign trade operations. Results: it was revealed that in the Russian Federation over the past five years, consumer prices for major food groups have more than doubled, while the growth rate of food prices exceeded those for non-food products, which is an obvious sign of agro-inflation. The possibilities of combining integration and isolation strategies for achieving food security used in the EU and China to stimulate the development of the agro-food complex of Russia in the context of new global challenges are substantiated.

Keywords: tax burden, tax policy, economic growth, Laffer curve, income, self-employment, government revenues, investment.


Purpose: to review the evolution of theoretical views and analyze the empirical results of Russian and foreign researchers on the impact of the tax burden on economic growth. Discussion: ceteris paribus, in order to stimulate economic growth, taxes should be reduced, but only to a certain level, in establishing which specific circumstances of place and time, including the effectiveness of the investment component of public spending policy, are important. Results: the ambiguity of the obtained theoretical and empirical results regarding the impact of the tax burden on economic growth actualizes further research on this issue. It is also important to take into account the fact that differences in the levels of taxation between countries are often a reflection of circumstances external to taxes, related to dependence on the trajectory of past development, the result of public choice in public spending, etc. Therefore, an acceptable level tax burden to stimulate socio-economic development should be considered as the compromise of interests of the majority of subjects of economic relations in a particular tax jurisdiction.
