PROLOG I TEME ZA JPF 2020

Modern global society, or the world community, is fraught with many problems. Globalism as a system has caused sharp collisions in every social aspect, such as the tension between the world centre(s) and the periphery, and the poor and the rich. It has also triggered major world migrations, production crisis, and has created poor consumption patterns, etc. There are also many local tensions and local wars in the world, disputes over planetary resources and rents, resistance to collective efforts to regulate and mitigate the effects of climate change, strengthen protectionism, trade wars, etc. There is nothing particularly new in the internal plan of the Western Balkans compared to previous years: heated political reality, social divisions, employment crises, low standards, low wages are still at the forefront, all of which threaten to cause a large-scale recession. In such circumstances, the struggle for a stable, dynamic, fair and sustainable economy, led by a healthy real sector tailored in accordance to the financial sector, remains the main priority. Of course, the priority of all the subjects of development is considered here: citizens, businesses, economies, states ... given the pronounced political depression and economic stagnation. There is a pronounced feeling that political depression is worse than the economic situation; it is not clear to what extent domestic business, finance, banks, education, the judiciary, and the state are in the service of the people (if they are at all). It can be discussed how much these sectors serve the people. Their mutual trust has been shaken and weakened. However, we deeply believe that, even with a serious delay, a strong breakthrough can be made and progress in every aspect can be ensured if the useful things are connected individually, locally, nationally and globally. It all should be done on the basis of better connectedness and complementarily of the real and financial sector, consumption and investments, mutual competition and mutual cooperation too. In order to consider and illuminate the major problems, the conference participants should deal with in the following issues:
