Educating the Reputation Capital Impact of a Region on the Parameters of Its Investment Activity: Methodical Approaches

Marat Rashitovich Safiullin, Alexander Stanislavoich Grunichev, Leonid Alekseevich Elshin


As a practice and empirical observations show, the educational activity of economic agents forms a whole set of prospects for their development. It is due to stable positive or, on the contrary, negative expectations of prospective counterparts that interact with the economic agents, of the possibilities of their development in both the conjuncture and the institutional directions. In this regard, education is very important, and its study is becoming widespread in the research field. Meanwhile, it should be noted that the studies of the question posed in the space of scientific work and research mainly concentrate on the micro-level. That is, the vast majority of works are devoted to the study of the education of firms as one of the most important "representatives" of economic agents. At the same time, the study of educational capital and its influence on the development of regional / national economic systems is unfairly deprived of attention. It is necessary to state that in recent years, the attention of scientists began to focus more and more on the issues set earlier. However, the theory of the territories' educational economy has not yet received development and attention. This largely restrains the research paradigm based on the study of intangible factors of production in the system of socio-economic development of regions or national economic systems in general.

In this regard, and to level this gap, the time course of the reputation capital index for the Republic of Tatarstan and the main components determining its level are built in this paper based on the developed methodological approaches to a formalized assessment of the reputation of a territory. This allowed us to assess the reputation impact on the investment activity of a region using the methods of econometric modelling. In particular, being guided by the principles and tools of regression analysis, as well as relying on the method of dummy variables, a high level of interconnection between the studied parameters was established by the authors due to the significant level of elasticity between the analyzed series found.
