Professor of Moscow State University predicted a world war in the coming decade

Professor of Moscow State University predicted a world war in the coming decadeSergei Malkov, a member of the Academy of Military Sciences, a professor at MSU, said on Thursday that the next world war could begin in the next ten years, but it is currently impossible to predict its nature.

According to him, the world is completing "the fifth wave of Kondratiev and moving on to the sixth technological order."

According to Malkov, in the next decade the world will face "strong political and technological instability," and countries that fail to move to the sixth technological cycle from the fifth may lag behind in the development of technology by 50 years.

The relevant conclusions were made by specialists from Moscow State University, Interfax reports.

Kondratieff cycles (K-cycles or K-waves) are periodic cycles of the modern world economy with a duration of 40 – 60 years. Long cycles are interconnected.

At present, it is believed that the relative correctness of the alternation of the upward and downward phases of Kondratieff waves (each phase 20 – 30 years) is determined by the nature of the group of nearby medium-term cycles.

During the upward phase of the wave, the rapid expansion of the economy inevitably leads society to the need for change. But the possibilities of changing society are lagging behind the demands of the economy; therefore, development goes into a downward phase, during which crisis-depressive phenomena and difficulties force us to restructure economic and other relations.

Recall that the First World War lasted four years - from July 28 1914 to November 11 1918. As a result of the war, four empires ceased to exist: the Russian, Austro-Hungarian, Ottoman, and Germanic (although the Weimar Republic that emerged instead of the Kaiser Germany, formally continued to be called the German Empire). The participating countries lost more than 10 million people killed by soldiers, about 12 million civilians killed, about 55 million were injured.

World War II (September 1 1939 - September 2 1945) was the largest war in stories humanity (world war). It was attended by 61 state of the existing at that time (80% of the population of the globe). The fighting took place on the territory of three continents and in the waters of four oceans. This is the only conflict in which nuclear weapon.

The third world war is called a hypothetical global military conflict. In the 20th century, the United States and the USSR could become the most likely initiators of the Third World War.

        It’s not necessary to go to a fortune-teller and that’s understandable. But what it will be and where, no one can affirmatively answer this question. The West needs a big war for the so-called “reset of capitalism”, which will write off old debts and pull out the economy with military orders.

          These forecasters, the strobes of which just do not add. And the global floods, and global droughts, and space disasters. Here is the author in the same steppe, to hell with horns and where Makar calves did not pass.

          Well, what are the reasons for a world war, other than author’s invented cycles? Such forecasters take as the basis only one technical development or one sphere of human activity, for example, economic development and automatically discard other areas and spheres and the general tread of civilization.

          What led to two world wars? To the first, in my opinion, this is the stupidity of sovereign conceit. You see the Arch-Duke, some fan killed .. Now such opinions are orders of magnitude lower. And even if the murder of a leader does not serve as a basis for war and the death of another 10 million military and 11,5 million civilians. The Second World War became a purulent abscess of the end of the colonial era. Countries late for the division of the colonies unleashed 2 MB in which 50 million people died.

          Now what are the reasons? The world community has become more humane, it no longer divides people by skin color and eye shape. So there are no reasons for national superiority. There is no colonialism either; there is nothing to divide. And the unevenness of economic development, so it accompanied humanity throughout its history.

          The danger of 3 MB was from 1945 to 1991. When a communist, vicious ideology opposed itself to the whole world and brandished an atomic club. Even in this atomic confrontation between the United States and the USSR, war was not unleashed. Why should she be now. The USSR behaved in those years, just as the communist DPRK behaves now. The first time the confrontation was a tragedy, now a farce.

          There is no now and in the future no reason to start a world war. Especially in the future when human relationships will be more tolerant and humane.

      Well, yes ... Explain the evil will of enemies to K-cycles and K-waves, this is very professorial.

      Recall that the First World War lasted four years - from July 28, 1914 to November 11, 1918. As a result of the war, four empires ceased to exist: the Russian, Austro-Hungarian, Ottoman and German

      I always thought that due to propaganda and as a result of the revolution, RI was reformatted into the RSFSR. Simply incomparable.

      Well, he's a mathematician,
      Sergei Yurievich Malkov (born August 8, 1955) is a Russian mathematician, a specialist in mathematical modeling of the dynamics of social, economic and technical systems, as well as cliodynamics. Leading researcher at the Institute of Economics, Russian Academy of Sciences, professor at the Faculty of Global Processes, Moscow State University
      .So here
      Cliodynamics is an interdisciplinary field of research focused on the mathematical modeling of socio-historical processes
      According to the publication of the scientific journalist Laura Spinney in Nature, most historians are deeply skeptical of cliodynamics, evaluate the prospects of cliodynamics critically and are not sure of the possibility of successfully applying its methods in historical science [1]. Some, like Sergei Kapitsa, emphasized that “the general issues of applying mathematics methods to social phenomena also require more attention and understanding” and in many cases “we can only talk about high-quality,“ soft “modeling.” So he is a serious scientist, but not the fact that his forecasts are justified ..

        I'm not a mathematician, but a marketer :) There was such Igor Ansoff, in 1964 he published a wonderful book about competition, where he introduced the concept of the uncertainty coefficient. Mathematically calculated. According to him, for those less than 4 (on the 5th scale) forecasts are simply pointless. After the stabilization of the Russian Federation after the crisis of 98-99, I decided to calculate this set, spent a week on rough calculations, got a little more than 3, and spat :)
        The bottom line is this: according to probability theory, someone from 2 points of view will certainly come true :))

          This is not that. The economy is cyclical, fixed assets are arranged in cycles; it has nothing to do with competition. It’s like a generation of airplanes- new, more advanced, obsolete on metal appear ... So are the main assets, machine tools and equipment. I can’t explain much easier here, much is intertwined — the main thing is the crisis of overproduction — a cancerous tumor of capitalism.

      A professor in the Russian Federation is the academic title of a scientific and pedagogical worker at a higher educational institution (professor in a department) or an employee of a scientific institution (professor in a specialty). What opus? Kondratyev’s waves are not his invention, he only voiced what economists already knew.
      Kondratiev's cycles (K-cycles or K-waves) are periodic cycles of the modern world economy lasting 40-60 years.

      There is a definite connection between the long cycles of Kondratiev and the medium-term cycles of Juglar. Such a connection was noticed by Kondratiev himself. Currently, the view is expressed that the relative correctness of the alternation of the upward and downward phases of the Kondratieff waves (each phase is 20-30 years old) is determined by the nature of the group of nearby medium-term cycles. During the upward phase of the Kondratieff wave, the rapid expansion of the economy inevitably leads society to the need for change. But the possibilities for changing society lag behind the demands of the economy, so development moves into a bearish B-phase, during which crisis-depressive phenomena and difficulties make it necessary to rebuild economic and other relations.

    Western historians do not share World War I and World War II, what was a rehearsal of a meat grinder is called the "first" world war. The cardinal destruction of the white population itself is the "second." And it’s really sad to hear that these wars were dictated by the economy .... Everyone knows who stood and stands behind the world wars, if the Moscow State University does not know this (or does not want to know?) ...

    The first two world wars were arranged to destroy European technological zones in favor of the American technological zone. After the Second World War, two technological zones remained, American and Soviet. The Soviet was exterminated and only the American remained, to the whole world. The dream of globalists. Now it is collapsing, and for what and who will arrange the third world?

      Do you really think that migrant workers will be on the dark side? Nothing of the kind, they are citizens of the CIS, and they are closer to Russians than Americans or Europeans, why should you call them that? They don’t come here to feed their family back home . In a word, there will be a little more allies. Cotton for bandages and cotton can be passed.

      Many researchers associate the change of waves with technological patterns. Breakthrough technologies open up opportunities for expanding production and form new sectors of the economy, forming a new technological structure. In addition, Kondratieff waves are one of the most important forms of implementation of industrial production principles [6].

      The composite system of Kondratieff waves and their corresponding technological structures is as follows:

      1st cycle - textile factories, industrial use of coal.
      2nd cycle - coal mining and ferrous metallurgy, railway construction, steam engine.
      3rd cycle - heavy engineering, electric power, inorganic chemistry, steel and electric motor production.
      4th cycle - the production of cars and other machines, the chemical industry, oil refining and internal combustion engines, mass production.
      5th cycle - the development of electronics, robotics, computing, laser and telecommunications technology.
      6th cycle - possibly NBIC-convergence en (convergence of nano-, bio-, information and cognitive technologies) [7]. After the 2030s (according to other sources, the 2050s), the onset of technological singularity is possible, which is currently not amenable to analysis and forecasting. If this hypothesis is true, then Kondratiev’s cycles may break off closer to 2030.

    Damn nice to know the ability at the level of a professor at Moscow State University fellow))) I, too, am also sure that the world-phenomenon is unstable and fraught with cataclysms and shocks, and indeed human nature is essentially predatory and the world periodically “shakes up” from surges of this energy. You can dig even further and realize that civilization is its current stage of development negatively affects the nature of man. The development of medicine (the lack of natural selection), the use of antibiotics and modified food, harmful ecology and damage from technological disasters destroy the human genome. Therefore, survive the apocalypse, and then survivors get lost in tribes, arm themselves with clubs and with digging sticks it will be more beneficial for the future than slowly and quietly degrading into our “beautiful” age of information technology. I’m somehow more used to stand firmly on the earth and rejoice at every sunrise than to turn into a single humanity in the future transformed into a thinking cloud of plasma. It is absurd, of course, but since we have to drink the bitter honey of war in the 21st century, then we must take from this maxim It’s very useful .-- Vasnetsov V.M. “Warriors of the Apocalypse” 1887.
