Dear readers and colleagues!
We hereby present to you the current issue of our Journal [3(35) 2010] containing 21 traditional sections with 126 articles, analytical reviews and bibliographic materials prepared by authors from 40 regions of Russia and other CIS countries (Byelorussia, Kazakhstan, Ukraine).
A most notable historical event for contemporary Russia was the affirmation of September 2 as the official date of the end of World War II by the State Duma of the Russian Federation. In this connection, the Journal presents illustrated materials and gives a review of the International scholarly-practical conference "Lessons of the Second World War and Contemporaneity"; the conference took place in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk on September 2-3, 2010, and was dedicated to the 65th anniversary of the end of the war.
Preeminent attention in this issue has been paid to a broad spectrum of problems related to modernization and transition to an innovative economy. In a largely new way the authors contributing to the issue analyze questions of socio-political effectivity in innovative economy (the article by N.V. Beketov (Yakutsk)), factors and relations hindering modernization in the in the Russian economy (the article by A.G. Kolmykov (Velikie Luki)), conceptual foundations of innovative activity ((the article by I.V. Gomon and V.G. Kosushkin (Kaluga)), directions of strategic planning of scientific and technical progress (the article by I.T. (Khabarovsk)), the role and the tasks of the state in financial support of innovative activity (the Pinegina article by S.V. Yurin (Ekaterinburg)), mechanisms of institutionalization in the process of implementing and disseminating innovations (the article by V.D. Shalynin (St.Petersburg)), market regulations of innovative activity (the article by D.M. Stepanenko (Mogilev)), and others.
The successful combination of traditional approaches with the transformational ones, preserving the basic conceptual principles while at the same time adapting them to new social phenomena, is reflected in a number of articles in this issue focusing on methodology. These include articles by V.Ya. El’meev and T.V. Malinina (St.Petersburg) on production and consumption in the context of the economic crisis; G.R. Malakhov (Barnaul) on the social process of appropriation; S.V. Mishchenko (Kiev) on the evolution of the monetary theory and credit-and-monetary policies; R.M. Kundakchian (Kazan’) on the system of economic interests of the middle class; S.A. Vladimirov (Vyborg) on the structural effectivity of macroeconomics; O.V. Sidorova (Ufa) on the development of new network forms of economic relations, and others.
A new range of problems widely discussed in the Russian and international economic science is presented in the articles dedicated to post-crisis stabilization and development of finance-and-credit system, e.g. R.I. Bekkin (Moscow) on the possibility of introduction of the “golden dinar”; B.I. Sokolov and V.S. Voronov (St. Petersburg) on the new format of institutional milieu in financial innovations; V.A. Lialin (St. Petersburg) on the development paths [ways of development] of the Russian stock market, and others.
