Andrei Fursov is the director of the Centre of Russian studies at the Moscow University for the Humanities.[1]

Career

He graduated from the Institute of Asian and African Studies at the Moscow State University in 1973 and is, according to en.inter-portal.org:[2]

  • Director of the Institute of system-strategic studies.
  • Supervisor of the “Fursov’s School of Analysis», the Moscow University for the Humanities.
  • Head of the department of Asia and Africa, the Institute of scientific information for social sciences, the Russian academy of sciences.
  • Editor-in-chief of the «Oriental and African Studies» journal.

Analysis

He comments on Jacques Attali's "Une brève histoire de l’avenir." - 2006 (English title: A Brief History of the Future) and "Demain, qui gouvernera le monde?" - 2011 (French, translates: Who will govern the world tomorrow?):

“Attali analyzes history and present-day events in the light of the change of Merchant orders. The contemporary one — the ninth — is going through an extremely acute crisis, which will end with the demise of Pax Americana. Then a furcation will occur. In Attali’s view, either world government will be established at once or it will emerge as a result of a three-move process of the 2020-2060s: hyperempire (market without democracy), hyperconflict and hyperdemocracy with a supranational government at its head.

The analysis of Attali’s works shows that he expresses the interests of the top of the world capitalist class that adheres to ultra-globalist positions and works for the subversion of the sovereignty of nation-states. The terminology used by Attali, particularly “sustainable development” / “sustainable growth” (in reality, it is the combination of deindustrialization, depopulation and ecologism), indicates his neo-Malthusian and neo-colonialist preferences. “Sustainable development” is a metaphor of the new world order (à la Orwell’s Newspeak), which is nothing more than control over resources (including information ones) and human behaviour (psychosphere). The main thing in this order is the preservation of power, property and privileges of the world’s elite whose ideological representative Attali is.”
