Digital Economy: A Vision From The Future

Valentina Bondarenko (Institute of Economics, Russian Academy of Sciences)

Article ID: 1402



The article shows that the foundation of the digital economy can be a new paradigm for predicting the future from the future, i.e. from the future in which the development goal has already been achieved. This allows to minimize all costs and completely avoid incorrect system solutions of the existing trial-and-error approach. Using the achievements of the technological revolution of Industry 4.0, an effective digital economy can be formed only when it is seen as an economy of coordinated interests between the state, business, society and the interests of each individual in real time at every local level. This will make it possible to solve the problem of ensuring the high quality of life not of citizens in general, but of each individual.
