Analysis of the Agents’ Features Influence on the Optimal Pricing in Bilateral Market

The article presents an analysis of foreign studies on bilateral markets and review of works dedicated to research of the optimal pricing principles and assessment of the influence of the agents’ features on the intermediary firm behaviour. The core article, “Platforms Competition in the Bilateral Market”, written by Jean-Charles Roche and Jean Tirol, was published in 2003. Basic models were dedicated to analyzing the influence of the demand elasticity and the magnitude of the network external effect on the optimal pricing of an intermediary firm. In process of enriching scientific understanding of the fundamentals of bilateral markets functioning, attention was focused on analyzing the influence exerted by various types of agents’ expectations or by the presence of loyal agents in the group.

Innovative Potential and Assessing Reserves of the High-Tech Engineering Technologies Development

Innovative potential of technology (IPT) is a set of single indicators reflecting the ability of a technological system to develop. Analysis allows us to interpret IPT as a characteristic of scientific and technical potential (STP) constituting a small increment of the function that describes the NTP of a technological system or its subsystem for a small predetermined period of time in the vicinity of the considered time point. This idea allows us to estimate the reserves of technology development and outline effective ways for its development.

On the Possible Impact of Productive Forces Interaction with Production Relations on the Science and Technology Development

According to the authors, external and internal challenges of Russia, its geopolitical position, as well as Jesuit Wester Russophobia encourage our country to join the group of undisputed leaders of global economic, social and political development. At the same time, preservation of production relations, existing in our socio-economic system now, is a powerful brake on the way of scientific and technological progress and causes significant underdevelopment of the societyэs productive forces. Such a state of productive force does not provide necessary qualitative leap in the social development of Russia and creates unsatisfactory prospects for its safe, sovereign and holistic existence. A systematic approach to the nature and essence of the productive force proves that the main and the single productive force of our society can only be a man, his immediate work. At the same time, the scientific-technological revolution (STR) and the process of conditionally digital socialization (education) are the dominant conditions for effective development of productive force. However, the lack of balance between individuals’ education and upbringing inevitably leads to manifestation of scientific and technical extremism, which can create conditions for destruction of the biosocium itself. One of the main results of scientific-technological revolution is also transformation of scientific and technical production into the first stage of social reproduction, while industrial-manufacturing production is postponed to the second stage. In addition, the key to scientific-technical leap is creating conditions for effective early identification of individuals with the highest level of biological sociality inclinations (with an increased ability to education and training) and their subsequent highly effective socialization (first of all, we are speaking about development of scientific and creative thinking). The main scientific-technical and socio-political condition, providing maximum efficiency of socialization of such individuals and transformation of scientific-technical production into accelerator of social reproduction, is bringing in equivalence production relations and the productive force of society.
