Abstract

The financial crisis of 2008 turned into a global crisis of trans-capitalism that had formed in the last quarter of the XXth century in three dimensions: economic, energy security and climate (environmental). The measures undertaken today by the United States and other countries that form the core of the global financial system are focused on preservation of it and do not affect the major institutional sources of the crisis. The emphasis is made on the fire-fighting methods that are based on the monetary dogmas prescribing fast and unsecured issuance of US the dollars. This creates highly dangerous imbalances in the global economy. The United States is turning from a generator of controlled chaos in the world into a generator of unmanaged chaos. In 2006-2007, China overtook the United States in terms of the real GDP. This means a change of the world's economic leader, and the current global crisis is a consequence of this fact. Still, despite the decline of its power, the United States remains an undisputed project, information, scientific and technological and military-political leader of the modern world.

NEW SECTION

In response to the challenges of our time the Editorial board continues to open new thematic rubrics:

“The Common Spaces”. The XX century was marked by the process of active development of the so-called common spaces, namely the World ocean, outer space and the Internet which, due to various reasons, were previously perceived as peripheral for the mankind and were not used at all or less intensively. Since then, the degree of their development and usage is constantly increasing. Even though the prospects of obtaining material dividends from their use are often extremely remote, the level of competition there is steadily increasing, resulting in growing inter-state conflicts’ potential.

“Silk Road and prospects of Great Eurasia”. It is planned to publish materials concerning the Chinese project of Silk Road and its impact on the socio-economic development of various countries in Eurasia and the integration processes in this mega-region.

“Africa today and tomorrow”The rubric devoted to contemporary issues of Africa which is attracting growing interest of the world's leading actors. We plan to publish the articles analyzing the status of statehood, socio-economic and political development of the countries of Black continent, as well as the integration processes between them.

“Civilization processes of modern development” is a new rubric opened by MEMO Journal in 2020. It will be devoted to the analysis of the influence of civilizational factors and inter-civilizational interactions on the political and socio-economic development of the world at whole, regions and countries.
