The journal’s first issue of 2017 offers theoretical articles on economic topics, focusing on general problems of the post-crisis development (inflation vs deflation) and the functioning of the global financial system (cross-border transmission of systemic risk).
Issues of economic and political integration in Europe are considered in both historical and current aspects in the cycle “Europe: New Realities”.
