Sergey Belokonev, development director of “ATON” invest company (Moscow) and the member of NSUEM Trustees took part in the round table devoted to economic situation.
Pavel Novgorodov, Vice-Rector for strategy and External Affairs , teachers of the Faculty of Economics and students of the high courses took part in this event.
Main questions that were discussed in the Round Table included economic crisis in Russia, politics of Central Bank of Russian Federation, inflation, import substitution and lack of effective managers.
Sergey Filatov, Dean of the Economics Faculty, NSUEM noticed that the main aim of the Round Table was to understand how the High School of Economics could help in resolving actual economic problems.
Sergey Belokonev commented: “I am glad to see economists in Russia that are following “state positions” in planning economical politics. In addition, they dominate in NSUEM. However, unfortunately, they are not dominating at the whole economic expert community. I hope that we can save our economics and if professors and teaching stuff could not do it themselves, graduates can do. Now the economic sector of Russian government is making decisions that are not explained right but they do not have reasoned criticism. Teaching stuff who are experts of economic topics could exactly solve this question using their scientific work. I still hope that the economic expertise will be getting stronger and economic politics will be based on serious approaches that have to be developed in the specialized universities. It will help us to make our economics healthier”.
