Founded in 1992, the HSE Faculty of Economics is the university’s oldest faculty. In the years since it was founded, it has gained a reputation as Russia’s leader in terms of higher economic education.
A fundamental education in modern economic theory and mathematics is combined with the study of applied disciplines, such as taxation, budget policies and processes, financial management and other related fields.
The World Bank's Deputy Chief Economist, Ana Revenga, will present the World Bank’s flagship report on poverty and inequality
The 2016 report, entitled ‘Taking on Inequality,’ takes a close look at global trends in inequality and the role that inequality reduction plays in decreasing poverty and improving the livelihoods of the poorest in every country. It looks at recent country experiences where there has been success in reducing inequality, provides key lessons from those experiences, and synthesizes the rigorous evidence on public policies that can shift inequality in a way that bolsters poverty reduction and shared prosperity in a sustainable manner. In doing so, the report addresses some myths about the global picture of inequality, and what works to reduce it. Within the context of these global developments, Ms. Revenga will reflect on the case of Russia and focus on the policy recommendations that are most relevant for the country.
