In two podium discussions the monograph authors – leading German and Russian experts in ordoliberal theory and practice of social market economy – discussed acute issues of modern policy of economic order in Germany, its historical prerequisites and possibilities of using the German experience in Russian economy.
V.B. Belov gave detailed analysis of the actuality, scientific and practical value of the monograph, outlining that IE RAS, celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, is one of leading Russian centers, studying the theory and practice of German ordoliberalism.
