Dear readers and colleagues!
We hereby present to you the current issue of our Journal [3(55) 2015]; its 21 traditional sections present 103 articles, analytic and bibliographic materials written by 154 authors from 28 regions of Russia and other countries of the Eurasian Economic Union and CIS (Belorussia, Kazakhstan, Armenia, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan), as well as Brazil, a member of BRICS.
This 55th issue of the Journal to some extent marks its anniversary, so I would like to stress that the content of the issue corresponds to the major directions in the development of contemporary economic problems. Among those are: 1) Ways, forms and methods of effective interaction among member-states of the Eurasian economic union, broadening and deepening of the Eurasian economic integration; 2) analysis of controversial questions related to Russian socio-economic development, the search of algorithms in overcoming of crisis phenomena in economics; 3) research of the content and mechanism of transition to qualitatively new innovative type of economic development; 4) description of axiological, methodological and theoretical foundations of the contemporary political economy, development of their cognitive and practical potential, including Eurasian political economy as the least developed by objectively demanded part of the political economy at large.
The content and the succession of the Journal’s thematic sections expand, specify and inform the ontological foundations of the Journal with new structural and functional elements, which eventually allow to present a holistic picture of the contemporary economic development.
The issue opens with the articles by the leading reporters of the Third Plenary siting of the International forum “Eurasian economic perspective” (St. Petersburg, April 16, 2015): head of the Parliaments of member-states of the Eurasian Economic Union – S.E. Naryshkin, Chairperson of the State Duma, Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation, M.V. Miasnikovich, Head of the Council of the Republic, National Assembly of the Republic of Belarus’, K.K. Dzhakupov, Head of the Majilis, Parliament of the Republic of Kazakhstan and G.G. Saakian, Head of the National Assembly, Republic of Armenia.
Among the priority questions, alongside with the topical issues related to the development of integration processes, was the addresses by S.E. Naryshkin to the representatives of the Higher School of Education on the necessity to work out programs and study courses on Eurasia, introduction of the corresponding specialization into the Higher Education classification for the preparation of professional cadres, as well as formation of dissertation councils where dissertations of the highest scholarly qualification will be defended.
The issues continues the discussion titled “Is there an economic crisis in Russia?” focused on the development of the anti-crisis model of the country’s economic development. This part contains articles by M.I. Krotov and V.I. Muntiyan as well as the articles by the leading scholars from Moscow (A.V. Sidorovich and K.A. Khubiev), St. Petersburg (A.I. Blagikh), Kostroma (V.Vl. Chekmarev and Vl.V. Chekmarev), and Ulan-Ude (V.G. Bezmestnov). The discussion continues.
Formation of the Eurasian political economy is the subject of the broadening discussion on the page of our Journal. This issue broadens the range of questions under discussion from the genesis of the Eurasian turn in Russian (the article by E.R. Tagirov), the problem field of the Eurasian political economy (the article by N.V. Vedin and N.F. Gazizullin), the use of the civilizational and formational approaches to the development of issues in Eurasian political economy (the article by A.A. Shevelev) – to the discussion of the content and structure of the course (textbook) “Eurasian Political Economy” (D.Yu. Miropol’sky).
The “Teaching Aids” section presents the third lecture on the course “General economics, or the model of market economy” by A.V. Sorokin.
The “Current bibliography” section presents the second part of the bibliography list on the present-day socio-economic development in China; the list is prepared by bibliographers of the Russian National Library.
The Journal invites everyone to engage in further creative cooperation.
