Natural Rate of Education as the Factor of Stability of Political Regime. Part I

Ivanov V.G.


The given article contains hypothesis about the increasing level of influence of the system of tertiary education on stability of political regime in many modern countries. In order to reveal the mechanism of such influence the author proposes the concept natural rate of education which reflects optimal balance between labor market and educational system from the perspective of avoidance and tackling of social protests and instability. The author supposes that the stabilizing function of the system of tertiary education is caused by its role of the specific regulator of labor market and its capability to involve millions of young males, providing them long-term occupation. Under the state policy this stabilizing function may be enormously exaggerated and even reach the point of extremum and become counterproductive. The article contains interdisciplinary approach, being on junction of political science and economics. The author uses selected methodological foundations of theory of human capital and introduces the following notions: educational pyramid, educational bubble, educational scissors and others.

Russian Civil Society: the Way of the Consolidation

Il'inskaya S.G.


The author sequentially defends in his publications the necessity to develop national humanities and political sciences, in particular to introduce the authentic category apparatus, to fill it with new content, to enrich what is already done but not to be satisfied with accepting western elaborations. S.G. Il'yinskaya offers to complement existing classification of state regimes with different types of contemporary social system. The division into society of values (procedural, regulated largely by law system methods) and society of an aim (mobilized, regulated largely by voluntarism methods) is developed. The principal idea of the article: we are not the worst and not the best, we are other, and there is no sense to refuse an own identity, not critically changing Russian reality using western patterns since on that way we are doomed to an eternal stamp of underdevelopment. The project of the future is understood by the author as a self-sufficient society of sense that is able to establish new aims, create new values. The main purpose that should be put today by civil society in Russia is to save Russian history.
