Evgeny Kuznetsov on Migration, Technology and Russia's Development

09.02.2017
Evgeny Kuznetsov, interim CEO of the Russian Venture Company, talks about changes that will engulf the world by 2050. According to Kuznetsov, migration flows will only increase over time, as climate change will make many parts of the Global South inhospitable for large populations.

Kuznetsov also talks about the impact of migration on various countries, including Russia. He notes that Russia primarily takes in low-skilled labor from former Soviet Union countries while people with higher education and skills leave the country, creating a negative selection mechanism.
