Economic Development

This part of Dagestan, which we conventionally can call "new Dagestan, "became a kind of boiler, where the individual members of different nations through cultural interaction, through intermarriage created supra-ethnic, obschedagestanskaya identity. There are people regardless of ethnicity, narrow, single process involved in the creation and distribution of public goods. The total population of "New Dagestan", as mentioned, considerably higher than number in the "old" mono-ethnic areas. The "new" Dagestan is certainly a step towards creating a future single obschedagestanskogo ethnic group. In my opinion, by the end of XX century the most important of which determined the future development of Dagestan changes was actually formed, but not yet officially recognized by the division of the republic into two parts, one of which is product development in the XX century, and another – the historical continuity centuries of the previous stage of development. Quite conventionally we call these two "new" and "Old" Dagestan.

Prospects for the development of mountain areas, to put it mildly, quite dubious. During Soviet times, when efficiency Economy sacrificed social equality, in the mountains employed hundreds of shops where women knit little-needed dzhuraby. In the 1990s, when the state is gradually disappearing from the economy, about the bulk of the unemployed able-bodied population of the republic were in the mountains. This inevitably led to an increase in the degree of informal care of young and dynamic population. Nothing has changed in the last ten years. Young people continue to seek in the city, where they were not waiting to improve financial position leave for other regions of the country …

But in terms of investment development of the mining area – the main priority of the government. Here stoyatsya HPS, build roads and pipelines are built dozens of schools and FAPs … Hard to say what would happen. I think nothing. I can not understand why the money to sow in the mountains if they are sorely lacking in the most promising and dynamic areas, and above all – in Makhachkala. Over the last twenty years taken measures to increase employment levels in the mountains or the development of production does not yield the expected results. This means that the number of mountaineers in the literal sense of the republic and will continue to decline.
