    Kondratieff Waves:
    Dimensions and Prospects at the Dawn of the 21st Century

    Kondratieff Waves is a new international almanac that will be published in co-operation with the International N. Kondratieff Foundation and the Faculty of Global Processes of Lomonosov Moscow State University from 2012. The year when we plan to start the publication of the Almanac is not coincidental at all, as this is the year of his 120th anniversary, as well as the 90th anniversary of the publication of his Mirovoye khozyaistvo i ego conyunktury vo vremya i posle voiny [The World Economyand it's Conjunctures during and after the War] (Vologda, 1922), where he first spelled out the idea of long cycles, which later became known as Kondratieff cycles, or Kondratieff waves (or just K-waves).
