Abstract

The purpose of this study is to analyze the formation of demand for imports of capital goods to the Russian market. Conducting such a study will allow to assess the econometric model of demand for foreign investment goods to Russia and to obtain estimates of elasticity of demand for foreign investment goods in terms of income and prices. The paper describes the theoretical and econometric model, the main hypotheses and expected results, the main problems and their possible sources. The results can be used to analyze the effects of monetary and credit, foreign currency and customs duty policy on the imports of machinery and equipment.
