International Economist and Strategist, member of the Bretton-Woods Committee, Vladimir L. Kvint, has been elected as a Fellow of The World Academy of Art and Science.
This election acknowledges Vladimir Kvint`s impact on the development of world economic science as well as his fundamental works in the global emerging market and strategic research.
The World Academy of Art and Science was established in 1960 as a non-official network of not more than 650 individual Fellows from diverse cultures, nationalities, and intellectual disciplines, "chosen for their eminence in art, the natural and social sciences, and the humanities”. Its activities focus on "the social consequences and policy implications of knowledge”.
The spirit of the Academy can be expressed in the words of one of the Academy founders Albert Einstein: "The creations of our mind shall be a blessing and not a curse to mankind." As it is stated in the 1960 Manifesto of the Academy’s founders, its Fellows share the ambition "to rediscover the language of mutual understanding”, surmounting differences in tradition, language, and social structure which, unless fused by creative imagination and continuous effort, dissolve the latent human commonwealth into contention and conflict.
To this end, the Academy serves as a informal world university in which reflective scientists, artists, and scholars may discuss the vital problems of humankind independent of political boundaries or limits, whether spiritual or physical -- a forum where these problems can be addressed objectively, scientifically and globally.
Scientific discovery and technological innovation continuously drive the development of instruments with unparalleled powers for both fulfillment and destruction.
