The research Center aims at obtaining meaningful results in economic theory and empirical research.

The research is based on a new class of models of market systems with free entry.

Our main goals

  • the study of new possibilities of the monopolistically competitive markets under removal of restrictions on the constant elasticity of substitution between goods in consumption;
  • extended analysis of the model of monopolistically competitive markets by including it in models of endogenous growth and multi-product output;
  • study of the nature of asymmetric solutions agglomeration model of core-periphery type;
  • empirical study of Russian interregional and international trade accounting for heterogenity of firms, sectors and trade flows;
  • development and testing of computable general equilibrium models in the regions.
