Reviewing the dynamics of SFP, one should note a trend to its growth decline: in accordance with the linear trend, annual decline in TFP growth in 2000-2007 was 0.18 percentage points (according to preliminary estimates, this indicator for 2000-2008 made 0.14 percentage points).
Speaking of the contribution of total factor productivity in GDP growth, one should take into regard not only the intensive, especially "technological" component, enabling to achieve the efficiency of production, but also other factors, disregarded in assessment of labor and capital input. One of those factors is the price in the world commodity markets, defining the volatility in prices of production output and capital resources, what is confirmed by the chart, demonstrating TFP growth versus global oil prices growth rates, presented in Figure 2.

GDP growth decomposition in 2000-2008 with regard to oil prices impact.
For 2008 oil price growth is assessed for eleven monthes.
Темпы роста СФП, % The evident interdependence of TFP growth and growth in the world oil prices enables to make further decomposition of the output growth rate, highlighting market component in TFP. As a result, the «final balance», purified from the impact of price changes in world commodity markets, is a more precise indicator of the technological productivity, i.e., the intensive output growth component (see Fig. 3).
As a result of decomposition, disregard of the factor of pricing conditions in the international commodity markets leads to a decline in the contribution of "technology" component to GDP growth.
In the period 2000-2007 average changes in price factor made 23 per cent in the output growth rate, while the technological factor makes the balance of 39.4 per cent. Herewith, in accordance with the linear trend, price factor growth rates were declining annually by 0.06 percentage points on average, while the growth rate of technological productivity - by 0.12 p.p. According to preliminary estimates, in 2008, on the contrary, there is a substantial increase of price component input in GDP growth, which, despite a significant decline in oil prices, started in September, reached 75.8 per cent in annual terms. In doing so, the contribution of intense growth component in 2008 has moved to the range of negative values (for the first time since 2000). In part, this result can be based on the applied method of balance splitting. Moreover, the assessment of "final balance" could be shifted down due to the fact that the preliminary assessment of growth decomposition in 2008 does not take into account the impact of changes in the number of working hours.
Therefore, in accordance with the obtained assessment for the 2000-2008, despite the downward trend in growth rates, the total factor of productivity remains the dominant factor in the GDP growth, making about 60 per cent of the average rate of output growth. However, it should be noted, that in 2008 a slowdown in TFP growth rate is based on negative dynamics in "technological" performance at the background of increasing average annual growth rate of the world oil prices.

Sychev Within six months the value of the assets in the mandatory accumulative pension system, excluding funds of insurance deductions in the RPF, increased by 1.8 per cent (from RUR 402 to 409 billion) as compared with 2.6 per cent in the first half of 2007 - see Table 122.

Investments of trust management companies In the first six months of 2008, the share of securities in the investment portfolio of trust management companies was growing (from 88.6 to 96.6 per cent) and decrease of the share of funds, allocated at the accounts of credit organizations (from 9.9 to 1.4 per cent).

Investments in trust management companies The share of government securities in the structure of investments in trust management companies was declining, while the share of the Russian corporate bonds was growing. The percentage of federal bonds has declined in 2007 from 10.4 per cent to 4.4 per cent in the first half of 2008 fell down to 2.per cent. The proportion of subnational bonds has changed insignificantly, from 11.2 per cent to 10.per cent. At the same time, the proportion of corporate bonds in an aggregate investment portfolio of trust management companies has increased from 38.8 per cent to 47.1 per cent.
In the short prospective the growth of corporate bonds share could be justified. As shown in Figure 5, the indices of corporate and government bonds had positive dynamics in the period under review.
Herewith, federal bonds index increased by 2.1 per cent and the index of corporate bonds - by at 2.per cent, but in June 2008 index of corporate bonds started to decline and within 12 trading days has lost more than 1 per cent24.

Such proportion allows to make a conclusion, that the share of bonds in the trust management companies aggregate investment portfolio decreased not only because of declining market value of the bonds, but also as a result of changes in the trust management companies investment policy, aimed at reducing the share of assets with volatile yield.

Results of the leaders of the absolute size of investment portfolios at the middle of 2008 are shown in Table. 2. As shown, the difficult situation in the stock market affected the results of all leading investors.

Lebed The problem of recognizing the claims of creditors in cases of cross-border bankruptcy is complicated and includes a number of separate issues. The most pressing among them is the application by the Russian courts the principle of reciprocity, proper understanding and observance of which contributes to the improvement of law enforcement in such cases, as well as institutional development of cross-border insolvency in general. The cases of bankruptcy of physical and legal entities are related to special competence of arbitration courts, which are acting through the arbitration procedures, stipulated by the Arbitration Procedural Code (hereinafter - APC). This provision is an exception to the general jurisdiction of Civil Affairs, under which cases of physical persons are reviewed by courts of general jurisdiction in civil proceedings. Arbitration courts, according to part 3 of Article 33 of the Federal Law «On insolvency (bankruptcy)», usually do not review cases on bankruptcy.
