Főszerkesztői köszöntő

Tisztelt Olvasó!

A CONTROLLER INFO-val egy új, hiánypótló tudományos igényű szakfolyóiratot tart a kezében. Hiánypótló mert, a papíralapú szakfolyóiratok piacán jelenleg a controlling témakörben hasonló folyóirat nem igen található.

A szakfolyóiratunk elnevezésében egyrészt a Controller szakterület módszertani és gyakorlati tevékenységeire utalnánk, másrészt az Info kifejezéssel a controlling koordinatív jellegének megfelelően – mint, „információ adó-vevő” – nyitnánk a controlling által közvetlenül érintett szakterületek így, az irányítás különböző szintjei, a pénzügyi számvitel, valamint a szervezeti controllingrendszer integráns részrendszerei (humánerőforrás gazdálkodás, a minőségügy, a környezettudatos gazdálkodás, a logisztika, a marketing és a K+F innováció,) felé.

FOREIGN DIRECT INVESTMENT AND NATURAL RESOURCES OF RUSSIA (BEFORE COVID-19)

Many studies show that foreign investment is one of the most important sources for smart money, and from a productivity perspective, foreign direct investment is the most beneficial. Productivity tends to grow due to innovations brought by foreign investment in both manufacturing enterprises and business structure. An additional benefit of foreign direct investment is associated with an increase in the productivity of only the companies receiving these investments, but also of other firms in the same country. As international experience shows, investment is one of the most important factors in the economic prosperity of any country. Despite the importance of foreign direct investment, the issue of attracting them in recent years in Russia has practically dropped out of the agenda as irrelevant. The drop is usually attributed to geopolitical risks, primarily sanctions. However, domestic problems that restrict foreign investment play no less important role than external restrictions. These include unjustified criminal prosecution of investors, and direct restrictions on the participation of foreign investors in an increasing number of strategic assets, and the unpredictability of domestic economic policy. This study shows that for the countries such as Russia that are abundant with natural resources, foreign direct investment highly related to the latter. Moreover, FDI in both directions is connected to natural resources of the country. Outward FDI mainly is carried out by Russian MNCs in energy sector whereas foreign investors’ interest is focused on mining and quarrying. However, natural resources are highly protected by the state.

DO DEVELOPING FINANCIAL SERVICES AFFECT CORRUPTION?

The study examines the relationship between the perception of corruption and financial inclusion, that is, the prevalence and use of modern financial services. The authors use Transparency International’s corruption index and the World Bank’s Global Findex database of financial inclusion. Based on the time series data of Hungary and Mexico between 2009-2022, statistical methods are used to examine the evolution of performance. First, they compare data by geographic region. The countries are then classified into clusters, and then the results of Mexico and Hungary are analysed. Based on the results, the authors did not find a direct correlation between the financial culture and the reduced perception of the severity of the corruption problem in the examined period.
