Ruslan S. Grinberg, Alexander J. Rubinstein. On the General Theory of Social Economy
In the report, basics of the general theory of social economy, developed by the authors, are presented, and automatic economic philosophy is criticised. An attempt to combine classical market axioms with the socialisation paradigm is undertaken, and the concept of economic sociodynamics as core of a new economic theory, developed. Within the framework of this concept, the authors offer the key theoretical issue, the existence of non-reducible public needs, and introduce the "social utility" category, which carrier is the state. The hypothesis about the state being a normal agent of market relations and a new understanding of market equilibrium, is put forward. The Pareto optimum is treated in a new, extended way, and basic principles of rational behaviour on the part of the state are characterised.

Michael G.Zavelsky. Social dynamics and economy modernization
Economy development is considered as a process dependent on motivational-institutional structure change, defining an immersion of "long waves" and, accordingly, of economy technological modernization in "superlong waves". The model, displaying acceleration (deceleration) of adapting the velocities of moving one economy variables to velocities of moving the other ones, as well as speed of adjustment of shifts of ones with regard to equilibrium to like shifts of the other ones under the influence of growing old and renovation of this structure, is built and explored. Probable length of such "hypercycles", which accords with the wide-spread belief about a period "long waves", is revealed.

Natalia. N. Rayskaya, Jacob V. Sergienko, Alexander A. Frenkel.A Study of Interrelation between Factors Shaping Inflationary Processes in Russia
Inflationary processes are studied with due regard for the following two aspects of the transitional economys specific character: demand inflation and cost inflation. Interdependence between the main inflation indicators is analyzed using autocorrelation  and crosscorrelation functions which make it possible to reveal delays in dynamics and determine time lags. Two models of inflationary process are suggested: the lags-adjusted multi-factor model and the inertia model.
Victor M. Polterovich, Alexander A. Friedman. Economic Science and Economic Education in Russia: The Problem of Integration
Integration of economic science and economic education via the transformation of Research Institute (NII) into NII-University is considered. Using the example of the New Economic School, experience of partial integration of an academic institute (CEMI RAS) with masters program in economic is analyzed. Main tasks for the reform of higher economic education are discussed, and the structure of a new a Curriculum is sketched. The possibility of the transformation of CEMI RAS into a Research Institute - Economic University considered.
