The main research question is whether the emerging peer-to-peer lodging platforms, part of the exploding sharing economy, are competitive or complementary to the traditional lodging industry. Data was obtained from secondary research and collected in 24 field interviews.

Specifically, the chapter concentrates on examining FDI in the Greater Moscow and Greater St. Petersburg, Russia's leading economic regions.

Preface, Geo-Regional Competitiveness in Central and Eastern Europe, the Baltic Countries, and Russia

IGI Global

Zhuplev, Anatoly


Globalization and regionalization have been expanding over the past few decades, reshaping the politico-economic landscape and business dynamics. Technological advances in transportation and communications, improvements in the freedom of information, trends in political economic liberalization, emergence of international institutions, non-governmental organizations, and business enterprises across the world facilitate cross-cultural learning, exchanges, travel, commerce, and investment flows. Along with opportunities, these developments and trends also cause inter-dependencies, complexities, and competition for limited resources under social-economic and environmental constraints, as well as political and cultural differences.

“Drivers, Trends, and Outlook in Sustainable development: Comparing Best Practices in Northern Europe (Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden) and California” (chapter)

Principles and Strategies to Balance Ethical, Social, and Environmental Concerns with Corporate Requirements , Emerald Insight

Branum, Karina, Cepeda, Laura, Howsman, Cody and Zhuplev, Anatoly


Purpose – The purpose of this research is to compare trends, drivers, and best sustainable development (SD) practices in the Nordic region and California, USA.Design/methodology/approach – Four research propositions are explored: (1) SD is driven by governmental, economic, and social/cultural influences. (2) Social democracy and mixed economies in the Nordic region influence SD differently than the free market system of the United States. (3) The profit-centered, short-term view in the United States impacts SD differently than the longer-term approach in the Nordic region. (4) The egalitarian culture in the Nordic region influences SD differently than the entrepreneurial culture in the United States. The study incorporates a comprehensive literature review, 34 field interviews and research observations in the United States and the Nordic region.Findings – California and the Nordics have similar market economies where SD is largely driven by private sector; however, the role of government more directly influences SD in the Nordic region. Also, the profit-centered, entrepreneurial view of the United States drives innovation in SD based on short-term profitability gains, which ultimately hinders long-term solutions. Alternatively, the egalitarian culture in the Nordic region manifests in more focused and quicker adoption of SD policies. Lastly, the Nordics have a broad range of SD goals and a competitive advantage in key SD technologies. Conversely, California pursues a large variety of technologies without clearly defined goals that tend to be less effective than the Nordic countries.Originality/value of chapter – The chapter identified similarities and differences in SD trends, best practices, policies, and attitudes: California compared to Nordic countries.
