" I consider it a great honor to be elected as a Fellow of the Core Academy. My research was largely focused on the study of theoretical and applied issues of economics and the post-Communist transformation of the command economy; the concept of Necroeconomics was created and developed as a theoretical basis for the post-Communist transformation of the economy; special attention is paid to studying the role of human in economic processes; the concept of Retroeconomics was developed as an economic theory of technological backwardness; a Laffer-Keynesian Synthesis model was constructed; a method for eliminating the Catch-Up Effect in economic growth indicators has been developed; a system of complex inflation targeting for import-dependent countries was justified; the issues of transformation of globalization and economic externalities of large-scale economic sanctions have been studied; the geoeconomic concept of Central Caucaso-Asia was developed."
