New Formats of the Post-Global World

DOI: 10.33917/es-4.162.2019.34-41

Analysis of national projects laid out by the RF Government allows to claim that this project set will not be the very breakthrough strategy, the need for development and implementation of which was stressed by the President of the Russian Federation, at least because the breakthrough can only be “whereto”. And “what for”. These questions should have been met by the Strategy for Social and Economic Development (SED) of Russia. The strategy itself, in turn, was supposed to rely on a basic national concept, such as the GOELRO Plan, the Space Project and others, and the strategic forecast through levels “World” – “Country” – “Region”, which would indicate critical changes. The latter were supposed to serve as a scenario framework for the strategy, to highlight those key potentials, the development of which would provide the greatest positive effect. In addition, the strategic forecast should have outlined the scenario forks as those points where management decisions are necessary. But strategic forecast, commissioned by the RF Ministry of Economic Development, does not meet these requirements and cannot serve as a basis for a new SED Strategy. The article focuses on the basic sense-bearing concept

Digital Economy Toolkit for Solving the Problems of Separate Accounting of Financial and Economic Performance Results

DOI: 10.33917/es-5.163.2019.28-39

The main problem of managing economy at the military-industrial complex enterprises is the separate accounting of results of financial and economic activities in terms of introducing separate bank and personal accounts for each contract with the buyer of a particular type of product in order to establish control over the payments costs through the performers’ cooperation chain within the requirements of state regulation of the state defence order. Physical division of financial flows of each defence industry enterprise into separate accounts has already caused sharp increase in the number of accounts – from several ones to one and a half thousand — and to significant increase in debt loan, which doubled in half a year and by July 2019 amounted to more than 2 trillion roubles. The problem is aggravated due to conflicting requirements of regulatory legal acts, which requires to fill out report forms reflecting the different contract price structure according to the state defensive order for submission to the Defence Ministry and the Federal Treasury. But most of all, they contradict the economic nature of operations reflected in accounting and do not provide control over payments, since the chosen implementation technology is wrong. It is necessary to change radically the approach to solving the above problem, which can be eliminated only by developing an innovative model of digital system for managing economic activity through reflecting the economic activity data in the indicators codes of accounting objects and codes of business transactions in digital form. And above all, it is necessary to make all payments on one individual account, taking into consideration financial and economic flows reflecting business operations on an accrual and cash basis, to implement separate accounting of financial and economic activities results and to establish effective control over payment costs.

DOI: 10.33917/es-4.162.2019.50-59

Today, serious miscalculations in management are associated with ignoring statistics as a powerful tool that makes it possible in the conditions of unprecedented growth of information flows and, in particular, inadequate information, to fairly and reliably analyze trends and dependencies, as well as predict social and economic phenomena and processes.
