The program of the IUE Meeting plenary session consisted of two parts: scientific and discussion part and organizational part.

Scientific and discussion part of the Meeting

The main report on the theme: Seize the Wall Street was made by G. Kh. Popov President of the International Union of Economists, President of VEO of Russia, President of the International University, President, Honored Academician of the International Academy of Management, Academician of the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences, Dr. Sc. (Econ.), Professor.

For twenty years so far we have been observing financial geniuses saving us and the whole world from catastrophes. But the same repeating crises appear over and over again. And its high time we made conclusions. They have the same essence: the financial and nomenclature oligarchy cannot cope with the role of the civilization leader in the 21st century. It cannot cope despite the fact that it has taken the whole state authority under control. It cannot cope despite the fact that it has usurped a significant portion of the societys wealth. It cannot cope despite the fact that it has provided itself with living standards that are hundreds and thousands times higher than those available to other members of the society.

The modernization type Seize the Wall Street movement raises a question not about creating a new society, but about creating a new stage of the post-industrial order. G. Kh. Popov expressed confidence that today there is a need to modernize the whole modern post-industrial order on the basis of evicting financial capital, intensification of both state fundamentals and the fundamentals of the true competitive market of small and medium business.
Among other things, the meaning of the Seize the Wall Street movement consists in the fact that its main mottos are close and comprehensible to everyone: liquidating banks; liquidating stock exchanges; savings banks to citizens; mutual loan societies to small and medium business; state non-profitable banks to the country; World Bank and World Money to the planet, said Professor G.Kh. Popov.

And although Russian mass media do their best to prevent the distribution of information on this movement, it has become a distant lighting in twilight. It is hard to say now whether it will become a spark that will ignite the era of anti-bureaucratic revolutions of the 21st century predicted by famous futurologist Alvin Toffler or it will fade away. But Hope has surely appeared. An engagement for all true intellectuals, all honest people is protecting and supporting this movement. It is necessary to follow the way that has already been chosen by the best part of the population from developed countries, the best part of intellectuals, the far-sighted part of the business. Seize the Wall Street and save yourself, children, people, Russia and mankind in the 21st century.

G. Kh. Popov expressed his full agreement with H. E. Mr. Faures speech and said that now its high time for learning lessons from the past and taking hard decisions. This is the time when we need new ideologies of the world order.
