The MEP is based on academic science and aimed to research perspective. The main tendency of scientific knowledge in XX-XXI centuries is the drift to complex systems and stochastic processes research. It affected research methods, results, and understanding of science destination per se. Economics as a social science reflects this tendency to the full extent. As the famous economist, W. Baumol, said, the most impressing results since early 1900th were achieved rather in empirical and applied research than in theoretical novelty.
However general scientific trends take specific dimensions for economic science in accordance with its subject and methods. Another famous economist – A. Marshall – has defined economics as dealing with the ordinary operation of human society; it‘s studying individual and collective actions about making and using a material basis of wealth.

Industrial Economics (020205)
As one of the branches of economics, applied economics is typically characterized by the application of economic theory and econometrics to address practical issues in a range of fields. The process often involves a reduction in the level of abstraction of the core of economic theories and on the other hand a supplement of details in the real world. By applying a variety of approaches including quantitative method, case studies, historical analogy and so on, it seeks a reasonable interpretation and inference of the tendency of the real world to solve the practical economic issues.
As a subordinate discipline of applied economics, industrial economics takes the “market and firms” as a research object. It considers corporate behavior from the perspective of markets, and meanwhile looks at the market structure from the standpoint of firms.The main line behind the development of this subject is the market relations among firms of the same industry, as well as the structure and coordination within a single firm....
