Ivliev, I. V., Kurilova, E. V. & Ivlieva, E. A. (2018). The Influence of Changes in Economic Relations on Tourism Activity. Zhurnal Economicheskoj Teorii [Russian Journal of Economic Theory], 15(3), 462 -469
The article summarizes the research results of the influence of economic laws on the assessment processes of the development of productive forces and production relations in the context of industrialization 4.0 in the tourism industry. The methodological foundations laid by the classical and neoclassical economic theory allowed the authors to formulate and reveal contradictions in the scheme “a man of predominantly material development — technology — a man of predominantly spiritual development”. The authors substantiate the position of confrontation between people and technology when a person acquires a new quality of consciousness, and the violation of temporary equilibrium states is possible due to the desire for profit and emergence of antagonistic, conflict relations. The calculations carried out by the authors confirm the idea that for some Russian producers the transformations that have occurred since 2003 are a tendency to consolidate the progressive equilibrium state as a consequence of the economic laws. The authors state that for some producers the change of proportions and conditions is damage, which means that someone’s interests are adversely affected. The authors concluded that the form of resolution of contradictions arising in the process of realization of economic relations depends on historically different states of society and determines the rationequilibrium development of the economy.
