Opinion (Yuri V. Krupnov, Director of the Institute for Demography, Migration and Regional Development): “We have now entered into the epicenter of the global financial and economic crisis. Who will offer a different socio-economic model? Russia has every opportunity to demonstrate a practical proposal, i.e. to take the Far East and Eastern Siberia and show an alternative model of development in these areas. We are going into a tailspin of crisis. Everything will be greatly degraded and sink. Unless there is a world leader, who will offer a new development agenda, we can slide towards a global war.”
My Comments: Our local groups should monitor prominent scientists politicians, economists, etc., and identify people who are aware of the need to develop new ways of development of the international community (its economy, finance, industry, culture, education, and upbringing) and offer them a description of our vision of the development of the world.
