Strategic Prospects of the Demographic Component of Russia’s National Strength

DOI: 10.33917/es-5.191.2023.38-53

Demographic situation largely determines the strategic prospects of our country in the context of fierce multifactorial competition between various countries of the world and their bilateral and multilateral alliances. The ar ticle examines dynamics of the Russian population trends, individual causes of male excess mor tality, the main factors for increasing the birth rate and also provides a quantitative assessment of the ef fectiveness of some of the above. To assess the consequences an agent-based demographic model of Russia was used and a sof tware package, developed jointly with researchers from China, was applied to make a long-term forecast of our country’s population.

DOI: 10.33917/es-3.169.2020.114-125

Traditional review of the past year strategic trends presents an analysis of the key components of the country’s integral power economy, foreign policy, armed forces, territory, natural resources, culture and religion, science and education, population, management – according to the original methodology developed by the Institute for Economic strategies. The authors suggest that the past 2019 will become a year of breakthrough in creating a quantum computer — a device that can fundamentally change the trend and the speed of technological development, as it once happened with introduction of electricity into industrial production and life.

Persistent Informationless Classification in the Post-Industrial War and Management of Production Competitiveness

In the works [1–3] it was shown that the ultimate goal of the post-industrial war is to establish (by violent means) exclusive control over evolution direction and speed of a local or global human population. But all such impacts can only be of clandestine nature, eliminating or impeding as much as possible identification of such war waging and its source. In other words, the key component of the post-industrial war management is creation of robust cryptological protection for the fighting parties. The article is dedicated to this problem, being the fourth in a series of publications on the topic “The purpose and nature of post-industrial war” [1, 2, 4, 5]. It is significant that since all the topics of the above series are based on the concept of a post-digital society [6], the stable cryptological protection, which will be discussed below, should also be non-digital, or rather non-informational, as the basis of a non-digital image of the future is analogue synchronization of states with application of the media wave properties. This generally does not require the creation of a management system based on the information parcels exchange [6]
