Are Inflationary Trends in the Global Economy a Sign of Growth, a Result of Deglobalization, or an Indication of an Upcoming Crisis?
Getting carried away with excessively dovish policies in the face of a supply shock is a very odd thing, fraught with major inflationary consequences

Are Inflationary Trends in the Global Economy a Sign of Growth, a Result of Deglobalization, or an Indication of an Upcoming Crisis?
Right now, the main risk is actually mounting inflationary pressure

Russia’s Economy: Modernization Strategy Reset
In many ways, low investment activity is low not only in our country. In most countries of the world, savings prevail over investment, including China and Europe. In this situation, in my opinion, the state can become the investor of last resort. This is also a mechanism for reducing uncertainty. Social, transport and digital infrastructures should be a priority for investment

Russia’s Economy: Modernization Strategy Reset
The key problem the government faces now is the removal of uncertainty. In general, we live in a world of dramatically increasing uncertainty, which comes from technology. Never in the world have technological priorities changed within a generation. <...> This is an unprecedented shock in terms of predictability, long investments. People like to talk about long investments, when in the process of long investments priorities change

Russia’s Economy: Modernization Strategy Reset
Another important factor is that the government is talking about client-centricity. It is extremely important. Client-centricity is a dialogue: I talk to people about what they need, I try to do what they need. This, of course, is a real disruption, an exceptionally important discourse, an exceptionally important breakthrough

The Client-Centric State
You need to know your client, know your citizen, know what the people need and what the taxpayer needs. Moreover, this should not be done through rigid communication. What large corporations do, what Sberbank, Rosatom and other large corporations are doing, is very important for the state

The Client-Centric State
It would be very important to start translating the wording of regulatory documents into human language. I am not saying that they are bad. They are what they can be. But I, for example, always ask my lawyers not to send me the articles of laws, but to brief me on what they mean and what risks are behind the wording ambiguity

The Client-Centric State
Problems of client-centricity and effective government are global problems, not local ones; we cannot compete with ourselves. The most difficult thing here is culture. <…> That is where the main risk lies. Culture is very easy to say and very hard to do. It is indeed the starting point

The Client-Centric State
It is a dialogue, not a monologue. This is what distinguishes the new client-centric approach: it is interesting and important what a person wants

National Development Goals: Key Issues in the First Year of Work
There are too many process indicators [in national projects, – Ed.], not the target ones. According to our data, about a quarter of indicators is on the number of engaged enterprises, people registered. I believe some of the issues would be resolved if we focused on the [ultimate] outcome

The Impact of the Natural Gas Engine on the Economy and Climate
There is a risk of inconsistency of development of infrastructure and vehicles. Emergence of an excise component in the NGV fuel price. It is important to prevent monopolization of this market

The Impact of the Natural Gas Engine on the Economy and Climate
We can see at least four serious consequences [of transition to NGV fuel, – Ed.]. This impact on growth would be around extra 0.4% over the next 10–12 years. It will also have influence on competitiveness, as it leads to significant decrease of expenses; on inflation, as it can drive down producers’ prices in the middle term. <…> This will also reduce emissions: transition to NGV can help decrease emissions of solid particles to 80%

National Projects and the Regions: Key Questions at the Beginning of the Road
In terms of economic policy’s real success, we need to pay attention to the ratio between public and private investment. <…> And I mean real private investment, not just the ones made by state corporations, which are only reported as private in statistics, but actual private ones. It’s trust in the society, lowering the poverty level and the rest of the parameters

New Urban Environments as a Catalyst for Investment
Knowledge must be in demand. <...> While investment in education can result in economic growth, it can also result in worsening economic growth

Fiscal and Tax Policy as Factors Affecting Economic Growth
We need to modernize the Tax and Budget codes. The Tax Code as it is contains such a number of amendments that it has become contradictory and lost what was most important in it as a law of direct action. We need a new version. Budget legislation, it seems to me, is written for the employees of the Ministry of Finance. I would like the Budget Code to be a clearer, more transparent document.

The Digital Economy and Education: Changing the Paradigm
Yandex, like Google, and like other tech companies are largely disrupters of everything. <...> You disrupt GDP, since your activities make services much cheaper, thereby reducing demand for traditional services. Take Yandex.Taxi, for example. The greater its foothold, the fewer private cars there are, and the lower GDP is. Similarly, the more instantly available high‑quality and cheap e-books there are, the lower GDP is
