Economic and Social Development
XII International Academic Conference on Economic and Social Development to be held on April 5-7, 2011 at Higher School of Economics, which has become National Research University, offers an extensive and extremely interesting program. Two special issues featured at the Conference will be "Global economic crisis and prospects for modernization in Russia"and "Living standards and mode of life: changes in time and space".
The first issue is due to the fact that we have passed the global crisis and believe it is necessary to learn from it, find the best way out. The second issue, which was jointly prepared with the Journal "Expert", involves the comparison of the living standards in Russia on the eve of reforms and nowadays to make any conclusions about the results and goal of the changes. It’s not an easy task, because the reforms have led to the changes in the socio-economic systems, and to a break in our way of living in the considerable extent. Discussion on these topics is expected to be very interesting.
At the XII International Academic Conference at the plenary meeting and as an honorary speaker there will be Prof. Leszek Balcerowicz, nowadays economist, scientist and public person of Poland, the author of the “Shock therapy”, which is also named “Horse therapy”, it is associated with the big severities, but experience shows that it makes positive results.

We hope that the XII International Academic Conference will be another demonstration of the achievements in science.
