dc.description.abstractUsing a unique enterprise-level data set, which covers the regions Moscow City,Chelyabinsk, Krasnoyarsk and Chuvashia and the three sectors manufacturing and mining,construction and trade and distribution, we estimate Russian labour demand equations forthe year 1997. The most important conclusion that can be drawn is that labour demand isinelastic in international perspective if we estimate a labour demand equation for all regionsand all sectors combined. So, Russian MLEs well into the transition still exhibit peculiarbehaviour as far as wage employment trade-offs are concerned. We try to relate thisinelastic labour demand to basic neoclassical theory by testing Marshall?s rules of deriveddemand. Our results show that testing these rules seems a promising avenue for establishingsome of the driving forces, which are behind labour demand in Russia.en_US
