Modernisation Parameters of Fixed Capital in the Reindustrialization Conditions of the Economy: Statistical Aspects

Modernisation Parameters of Fixed Capital in the Reindustrialization Conditions of the Economy: Statistical Aspects

Journal of Economic Regulation, , Vol. 8 (no. 2),

In sales terms of strategy of the reindustrialization directed to recovery of potential of industrial production on qualitatively new technological basis in article the attention on such object of state regulation of economy as level of technological effectiveness of industries of the processing and extracting sectors of the Russian economy is focused. A main objective of this article is the research of parameters of modernization of fixed capital, including its statistical recording and analysis. Unlike the existing researches in which technological effectiveness is determined by such indicators as costs for Research and Development and a share of highly skilled workers in this article for an assessment use of such indicator as an organic structure of the equity which reflects change of a technical structure of the equity in dynamics is offered. In article measure calculations "an organic structure of the equity" on industries of the processing and extracting sectors of the Russian economy are made. Comparison of the received results with data of official statistics, including an indicator "a «fondovooruzhennost» by types of economic activity" allows to formulate a conclusion about need of accounting of cost indicators of a factor "work" in case of an assessment of parameters of technological rearmament of production. Also comparison of parameters of technological effectiveness of the extracting and processing sectors of economy of Russia and the USA is made. The carried-out calculations testify to repeatedly lagging behind absolute values of a technical structure of the equity in industries of the processing economy sector, and also to availability of a technology gap between extracting and processing sectors of the Russian economy. Such dynamics is a consequence of the adverse institutional changes generating growth of transformational and transactional expenses in national economy.
