In 2013 the Forum was held for the first time. Venue — the Moscow State University — the oldest classic University in Russia. The Russian center of science and culture.

About MEF-2016

Central Forum will be held in Moscow on March 23–24 and will focus on:
«25 years of market reforms in Russia and the world. What’s next?»

Lomonosov Building of the MSU Map

Its 25 years since the beginning of market reforms in Russia. False guidance provoked a prolonged lag of Russia behind the world powers. We are keeping the wrong course and it is not planned to change.

With what can we compare the current level of development in a quarter century of Gaidar’s reforms? What the other countries had reached in the same period? Why Russia accumulated the lag in living standards and technological developments from other countries? How to debunk myths about the inferiority of the Russian people and heavy past of our country. And most importantly — what the sound economic policies of the new Russia should be based on?

The purpose of the MEF 2016 is to offer an alternative course of development.

MEF-2015

Main theme of the MEF 2015 was “A new course. Time does not wait”. Neoliberalism has exhausted itself — the conclusion made by the Forum. However, it dominates the economic policy, culture and education. This is a hindrance to the further development of Russia, which has huge potential. Non-commodity production creates a demand for skilled creative staff, the conditions for the emergence and implementation of various innovations, the conditions for technological, social and demographic progress, and it creates a request to improve the human environment.

Among the participants:
Evgeniy Savchenko — the Governor of the Belgorod region;
Daisuke Kotegawa — Executive Director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) from Japan in 2007–2010;
Sergei Arbuzov — Chairman of the Association “Research Center of economic and socio-cultural development of the CIS countries, Central and Eastern Europe”;
