Dear readers and colleagues!
We hereby present to you the current issue of our Journal [4(56) 2015]; its 19 thematic sections present 100 articles, analytic and bibliographic materials written by authors from 31 regions of Russia and CIS countries (Kazakhstan, Armenia, Tajikistan, Belorussia, Ukraine – LNR), as well as China, Germany and Vietnam.
The issue opens with the Greetings of the President of the Russian Federation V.V. Putin to the participants of the International Forum “Eurasian Economic Perspective” (Astana, capital of Kazakhstan, October 6, 2015) and the Statement from the address of the President of the Republic of Kazakhstan N.A. Nazarbaev on the 70th session of the UNO General Assembly that took place in September of 2015. While stressing the large scale and the unique character of the Eurasian integration project, both presidents draw attention to the immense opportunities in development of EEC international relations, first and foremost related to the Economic Belt of the Silk Road promoted by the People’s Republic of China.
The greetings of the Chairman of the Federation Council V.I. Matvienko, as well as the addresses by the Chairmen of the Parliaments of Russian, Kazakhstan and Tajikistan (S.E. Naryshkin, K.K. Zhakypov and Sh.Z. Zukhurov) specify the major directions of current joint activity both on the part of several EEC members with the People’s Republic of China, and EEC at large, aiming at coordinating the activity around the Economic Belt of the Silk Road.
The above mentioned authors stressed the high potential and promising perspectives of such interaction that according to forecasts should involve over 60 countries of the Eurasian continent with the population of over 4 billion people, give an impulse to a broad spectrum of mutually beneficial exchange among the states in all spheres of economy, including power engineering, telecommunications, extraction and processing of minerals, in production, agricultural and innovative cooperation, as well as in technology, education and cultural areas.
The plan of co-development proposed by the leaders of EEC and the People’s Republic of China, which is already implemented by its participants, signifies a new ideology of economic rise on the global scale. Data given by other Forum participants and presented in this section of the Journal support this conclusion; in particular, we address the readers to the addresses by the First Deputy of the Prime Minister of the Republic of Kazakhstan B.A. Sagintaev, of the Chairperson of the Assembly of the Eurasian Economic Commission V.B. Khristenko, by the Chairperson of the Committee of the National People's Congress, People's Republic of China, on environment and resource protection Lu Khao, the Rector of M. Lomonosov Moscow State University V.A. Sadovnichiy, of the akim (mayor) of East Kazakhstan regions, Republic of Kazakhstan, D.K. Akhmetov, of the Governor of Chelyabinsk region, Russian Federation, B.A. Dubrovskiy, and of the Secretary General, Shanghai Cooperation Organization, D.F. Mezentsev.
In continuation of the discussion launched in the previous issues of the Journal on the nature of the present-day economic crisis and ways of its overcoming, the issue addresses the system of anti-crisis measures under the perspective of the Strategy of Russia’s national security, approved by the President of the Russian Federation on December 31, 2015 (the article by M.I. Krotov, V.I. Muntiyan, L.E. Slutsky). Alongside with a deep theoretical understanding of the anti-crisis issues, this article fulfills the mobilizing and referential function by setting a specific goal before Russian economic science – namely, “to develop a working anti-crisis program corresponding to the adopted Strategy.” The article by A.A. Tavadian on the coordination of money-and-credit policy in EED countries in the context of crisis is the logical continuation of this discussion.
The section “problems of modernization and transition to innovative economy” presents one of the last articles by L.S. Bliakhman, sent to the Journal; the article is dedicated to the national and confessional factors and predispositions of the new industrialization. This section also contains articles by O.M. Turygin on the sources of investment resources for new industrialization and by V.S. Fomina on the development of informational and communicational technologies.
The issue also continues the discussion of the key issues related to the formation of the Eurasian political economy (the articles by S.A. Diatlov and A.A. Ananjev, and by A.I. Popov), as well as the interactions of the Eurasian political economy with specific economic disciplines (the article by D.Yu. Miropol’sky and N.F. Gazizullin).
In the section “Economic globalization and issues of national and international security” I.O. Abramova, L.L. Fituni write about underestimation of the “African factor” upon the global economy and politics.
Twenty years of the theoretical and pedagogic school “Marketing of interaction” under the guidance of G.L. Bagiev in St. Petersburg State Economic University became an significant event in the academic life of Russian and CIS. In this connection, the section “Science and Education” is thoroughly dedicated to the achievements of the school and its further development.
