The investment component in a nation’s economic security: the case of the Russian Federation


The purpose of this paper is to provide a characterization of the current state and level of the investment component in Russia’s economic security and concretize the key focus areas for ensuring it. The study is grounded in the dialectical method of scientific cognition, the method for cognizing the process of attaining investment security in all its contradictions, integrity, and development, as well as the systemic approach to the analysis of the effect of investment activity on the national economy. The authors explore some of the key theoretical aspects of investment security within the national economy and examine the dualism of investment security as a component in the nation’s economic security; establish a system of indicators for ensuring investment security, including its major qualitative and quantitative criteria; compute a set of indicators for the investment component in economic security; identify some of today’s key threats to investment security within the Russian economy. Exploring the theoretical aspects and computing the indicators of investment security serve as a basis for further research into the subject and may help detect and minimize threats that may arise in connection with the investment process, as well as develop and concretize a set of major focus areas for ensuring investment security at all levels.
