Seasonal anomalies play an important role in the global economic system. One of the most frequently empirically observed anomalies is the Halloween effect. Halloween effect describes the anomaly in the financial markets, which is that the returns of different assets in the summer period generally are lower than the returns in the winter period. This study tests the hypothesis of the existence of the Halloween effect on the energy markets over the period from 1985 to 2016. The sample includes series of prices for various energy resources. The econometric estimation showed that for a range of energy markets, returns during the summer period are higher than the returns in winter ones. The difference in returns is statistically significant, which speaks in favor the Halloween effect

This article focuses on the mechanisms for implementing public-private partnerships and the use of the theory of the ladder of Lansink to solve problems in the field of waste management in the city of Kinshasa in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The purpose of the article is to study the different waste management systems in the world by comparing different models of waste management. The results show that countries that have a better performance in waste management, they are using public-private partnerships). The implementation of the public-private partnerships allows the reduction of monopoly of the State. Very often, lack of financial instability results in the state disengagement in the waste management. The application of lansink's ladder allows to manage waste step by-step: prevention, minimization of product, recycling, incineration and landfilling. This management model allows to consider the waste as a resource capable of regenerating the revenue and create employment

In this paper, we consider the possibilities of applying in the economy and sociology kinetic exchange models based on the energy exchange between particles due to the elastic collisions that arise between them. The aim of the paper is to determine the equilibrium states that arise as a result of the interaction between economic and social agents. The subject of the study was economic (exchange of wealth between the participants in trade) and social (dynamics of public opinion) processes, considered from the point of view of the kinetic theory of gases. The models used in the work for computational experiments have a microcanonical description, and a statistical method for studying macrosystems is used to calculate physical quantities. As a result of several computational experiments it was shown that the application of statistical mechanics methods in economics and sociology is very useful for studying such phenomena as the exchange of wealth between economic agents and the dynamics of opinions
