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.

What do we have to do in order for Russia to become the world leader to year 2025? / How will it reflect on life of every citizen? / Is there an alternative to liberal policy in Russia?

On this and many other we will speak on Moscow Economic Forum March 30–31, 2017.

MEF-2016

Main theme of the MEF 2016 was “25 years of market reforms in Russia and the world. What's next?”. Failure to understand the importance of the problems of creating economic subjects of the market economy, the wrong allocation of resources, the concept of shock therapy, because of which the bulk of the high-tech industries was lost, and gradualism led to expensive errors. The processes that occurred in our country in the recent past, allegedly in order to increase competition, have been tampered with destructive model, parasitizing on natural resources. The main result of MEF 2016: the Russian government needs the new course of economic policy.

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.

It is a mistake to think that only rich countries can afford to develop socially-oriented development.
