The focus of modern global transformations is the competition of development a strategically model reflecting the struggle for domination in the “new industrialism” models, which takes the economy of the “core” and its partners outside of a system of the dependence on the investment and financial world controlled by the transnational network investment structures.
From a structural point of view, reconfiguration of the positions of key global players in the resource and logistically significant countries of the world is currently underway in order to get away from the likelihood of a direct economic collision, a potentially destructive character, which was demonstrated by the example of the China – US trade war. The localization of competition at the geostrategically regions as the Middle East, open to the United States to transfer the situation into the “game with a non-zero volumes”.
An indicator of the desire to localize interstate competition on regional, remote sites is the reject of US from the already announced withdrawal from the Middle East in the medium term and the transition to a policy of consolidating a presence in this important region, taking into account not only the need for military-armed deterrence of Iran, but also control of important resource and logistic plan of the regions: the Red Sea, the Strait of Hormuz, the Eastern Mediterranean.
For Eurasia, the main factor is the formation of a core of economic growth around itself, within which it will be able to provide opportunities for economic development that are favorable for itself, but relatively transparent and comfortable for its partners, under conditions of a high degree of protection against external manipulations. Russia, wit the national geo-economic framework, has the potential to survive as a sovereign state and even the potential for moderate rates of economic growth, but in itself has a limited potential to influence the processes of global geo-economic regionalization.
