SUMMARY

R. Grinberg. Shall We Reach an Agreement to Negotiate?
Probably, many, if not all, often find themselves in a situation, when disagreements, disputes, and just different opinions expressed out loud do not lead to the agreements and mutual consent, but to the quarrels, enmity, conflicts. The deficiency of negotiability now even hinders the development of healthy relationships between the individual countries and between the unions of countries.


The Results of the Market Reforms "Without Anger and Bias"
According to the tradition, the Moscow Economic Forum was held in late March already for the fourth time. Its participants were more than three thousand people. It was covered by about 100 representatives of the media. It was visited by numerous foreign guests. Its main theme 25 years of reforms in Russia attracted attention primarily of those, who actively advocated the change of the economic model, prevailing in the country, and offered it a constructive alternative. From a series of plenary sessions, we chose the one that is closer to the subject and the profile of our journal. The results of these reforms are assessed by the well-known Russian and foreign experts. The discussion is moderated by the Co-Chair of the MEF (the Moscow Economic Forum) R. Grinberg.


V. Shcherbakov. On the Eve of the Collapse of the USSR
This year marks 25 years, since the huge state the Soviet Union, ceased to exist. did not become a huge state the Soviet Union. Much has been written about what, how and why it happened. But is there sufficient evidence of how the opposing factors were acting and what was being undertaken to prevent the catastrophe, which was later called geopolitical?


Yu. Knyazev, M. Lobanov. On the Significance of Market Reforms in the CEE Countries
The beginning of market reforms in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) turned a quarter of a century already. That is a considerable period in order to draw some conclusions. What this gave these countries, which had decided to give up not entirely successful socialism and to take the path of return to a more civilized capitalism?


G. Toloraya, L. Yakovleva. On the North Korean Transformations: Attempts of "Liberalization and Openness"
Many expected significant changes in the DPRK, taking into account the young age and Western education of the new leader. There were also those who believed that the role of the new leader would be purely formal, while the real power would remain in the hands of the military and political elite, which had gained strength still under the rule of his father.


D. Epshtein. The Economy of Russia: Initial Shove is Required
The reasons, why in Russia the transition to the new industrialization has not been implemented, are analyzed. It is shown that this is due to a number of peculiarities of the Russian economy. On a number of the well-known examples, the role of "the initial shove" in the economic reforms of the USSR, China, Japan, South Korea and Germany is shown.


Yu. Ganin. Foreign Trade Relations of Moldova and Transdniestria in the Conditions of the Competing Integrations
The Republic of Moldova, while retaining membership in the Commonwealth of the CIS and the participation in the Treaty on the Free Trade Zone of the CIS countries, since September of 2014, started implementation of the provisions of the Association Agreement with the EU. In the current situation, the new chances and the new threats appeared both for the trade relations between Moldova and Transdniestria with the West and with the East, and for the process of the Moldovan- Transdniestrian settlement of the conflict.


B. Shmelev. The Post-Soviet Space: Chances and Risks of Consolidation
The Post-Soviet space is gradually losing the geopolitical integrity under the influence of directed actions of various world centers of power. The New Independent States externally are politically oriented differently and are not interested in the development of mutual integration. After the beginning of the Ukrainian crisis, the CIS is losing the last remnants of legal capacity. A number of conflicts between the NIS is growing, including the armed ones.


I. Orlik. The Western Factor for the Eastern European Transformations
Some researchers call the socio-economic and political transformations in Central and Eastern Europe over the past 25 years, the historical phenomenon. But the old political "definition" "Eastern Europe" is retained and it is still often repeated again in politics, scientific publications (especially in the West), in the press and other publications. And there are grounds for this.


S. Dolmatova. The Imperative of the Welfare State and the Problems of Systemic Corruption in Russia
The article considers the problem of implementation of the principles of the welfare state in modern Russia in the conditions of economic sanctions from the West.


S. Czeghi. Yes, there is Growing Inequality: But Why Do the People not Revolt?
In recent years, both in academic journals and in the mass media, the reality of the growing wealth and income inequality has been described in detail and commented upon. Why do people put up with such inequality?


J. Kotowicz-Jawor. The Innovation is a Necessary Condition for Competitiveness
In the era of the globalization, the stormy technological changes and turbulences in the global economy, high innovative capacity becomes a necessary condition of competition at the micro and macro levels.


A. Tevikyan. Eurasian Economic Union as Factor of Armenia Development
Armenia, which is in a difficult socio-economic situation, is provided with a real opportunity, by adopting economic policies, with the underlying internal mechanisms and with the institutions of securing the development, to obtain the macroeconomic effects from the integration process, especially in the backbone, systemically important sectors, considerably increasing the countrys competitiveness and ensuring its economic development.


R. Fico. Migrants Drama of the European Union
Flows of refugees, which swept Europe, remain an acute problem of both the individual countries and of the European Union. The lack of unity of members of this organization remains a problem as well, when it is being solved.


R. Savio. We Need Statesmen and Values, not Cynical and Selfish Policy
A total indifference has accompanied the number of refugees injured by Macedonian police in Idomeni, where more than 12 000 people, including 4 000 children have been trapped, since Austria asked Macedonia, Serbia, Croatia and Slovenia, to prevent the continuing passage of refugees. Austria has now informed the Italian government that it will send several hundred troops to its border with Italy.


A. Tsypko. From "The Holiday of the Revolution" to "The Holiday of Holy War with the West"
Post-Crimean Russia opens many "secrets of the Russian soul". One must know that, behind a now fashionable in Russia doctrine of specific Russian anti-western civilization, first of all, stands, a "savage philosophy" of the Russian predecessor of F. Nietzsche, a philosophy of K. Leontiev.
