Kurginyan: The goal is to build a mixed economy

17.06.2017, Russia.

A multi-mode (mixed) economy must be created, in which the state sector and the private sector will coexist, political analyst Sergey Kurginyan said on June 14 during the Evening with Vladimir Solovyov TV show on Russian Channel One.

“What we need is a mixed economy, in which the state sector and the private sector would coexist. We need to transform into a sort of Chinese model, taking into account that the Chinese have now liberalized their financial sector, and we need to develop more rapidly,” Kurginyan said.

He also noted that nationalizations have taken place, among others, in classical capitalist countries:

“We must make it clear that great nationalizations have taken place in absolutely classical capitalist countries. Those were: the post-war nationalization in England, which took a very long time, and which created a great nationalized, i.e. state-owned industry; the post-war nationalization in France; Mitterrand’s nationalization in 1980s; the nationalization of the Suez Channel, and so on; according to the UN principles of nationalization, this is a matter of a sovereign country, which is free to address it at its own discretion.”

Also, the political analyst substantiated why nationalization is necessary:

“Finally, Sarkozy’s phrase that something needs to be done with this capitalism, that something wrong is going on… We must somehow free ourselves from under the heel of this strange transnational oligarchy… Therefore, if we want nationalization, and if we believe it would be practical, it can be readily carried out without compromising the basic norms of a bourgeois country.”

Kurginyan consistently advocates the idea of nationalizing the key sectors of the economy in order to stop the foreign manipulation of Russia through these sectors and to accelerate Russia’s development. As an example, Kurginyan refers to the Chinese economic model, which has demonstrated consistent growth for the last 25 years.
