Subject The article considers the real GDP growth in Russia within the projected long-term period and analyzes its drivers.
Objectives The aim of the study is to identify reasons for projected long-term growth of Russia's real GDP and to link it up with the ontology through the understanding of changes in economic systems.
Methods The study employs the systems approach, using the techniques of statistical, cluster, and neural network analysis.
Results We identified various systems to assess changes in the GDP of Russia that enable to show its rise and fall. Changes in the nominal GDP of Russia used by the Bank of Russia as a criterion for its assessment make it possible to rationalize the validity of the inflation targeting policy. The combination of inflation targeting and the ‘deleverage’ mechanism applied by the Bank of Russia creates conditions for share price growth in the face of slow pace of investment growth and falling domestic demand. The findings may be helpful for explaining the reasons for changes in the nominal and real GDP of Russia, as well as for educational process.
Conclusions The reasons for the forecast volatility of long-term growth of Russia's real GDP include the targeted reduction of inflation and leverage that caused an increase in stock price in the context of slow investment growth and a fall in domestic demand.
