|EXPERIENCE IN CALCULATING THE CONSUMER PRICE INDEX IN FRANCE: STATISTICS AND POLICY|
|The article investigates the experience of forming the methodology for calculating the consumer price index (CPI) in France from the 1910s to the present. The peculiarities of the index functioning in France are determined by two factors: following the general trends in the development of the indicator methodology and the critical assessment by society of its role. In the first situation, the generalization of historical development is relevant in the light of the accumulation of experience in the formation of sample populations of settlements, points of sale and goods and services, that is necessary to improve the methodology of CPI calculation in other countries. The second situation of discussing the index functioning as an object of political manipulation in France is of scientific interest in order to study the significance of the indicator for society and transfer this experience to the socio-economic systems of other countries. The generalization of materials on data collection and computing techniques was carried out on the basis of dividing the CPI calculation into stages proposed by Rosstat and considered as standard within the framework of the international standard. The political context of the CPI development in France is presented in a separate part of the article on the basis of combining with methodology data for calculating the indicator.
Keywords: consumer price index (CPI), harmonized consumer price index, cost of living index, Boskin Commission, census of settlements in France, household budgets, index of minimum guaranteed interprofessional salary.

|TOURISM INDUSTRY AND THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC: IMPACT AND CONSEQUENCES|
|The study aims to explore the relationship between the pandemic and the tourism industry. The emergence of infectious diseases is one of the consequences of tourism and mobility of citizens. The article examines the scientific research of foreign authors on the impact of epidemiological diseases on the tourism industry. The pricing strategies of travel companies caused by the policy of curbing the spread of coronavirus infection are analyzed. The authors cite some forms of adaptation of the tourism industry to the conditions of the COVID-19 pandemic (in such countries as Costa Rica, Jamaica, the Republic of Fiji, Finland, Greece, Iceland, Israel, Japan, the UAE, China). A statistical analysis of the tourism development in the Russian Federation (the number of incoming and outgoing tourists, the number of hotels and similar accommodation facilities) was carried out. The COVID-19 pandemic has reoriented the outbound tourist flow to domestic destinations. The advantages of developing domestic trips in comparison with international ones regarding their role in the economic development of regions are presented. The pandemic has led to an inevitable surge in the use of digital technologies due to the norms of social distancing and nationwide restrictions. One of the most popular forms of technological applications in the tourism industry is virtual reality. The use of virtual reality can contribute to the creation of a new, more sustainable model of tourism. The article presents four scenarios for the recovery of world tourism, developed by the McKinsey Global Institute and the Oxford Institute of Economic Policy (Oxford Economics). The authors identified priority areas of transformation of the tourism industry in the post-pandemic period, including at the technological level.

♦ statistical analysis of the tourism sector in the Russian Federation showed a sharp drop in outbound (3.6 times) and inbound (3.8 times) tourist flows (in 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic forced the closure of about 902 hotels and similar accommodation facilities);
♦ in connection with the closure of borders, the demand for domestic tourism has increased, which, in turn, contributes to the economic development of the country and regions and solves the problem of seasonality of Russian tourism;
♦ the COVID-19 pandemic has led to an inevitable surge in the use of digital technologies due to social distancing norms and nationwide restrictions;
♦ the coronavirus infection has provided an opportunity for the tourism business to transform, among the priority areas of the industry`s recovery are quality improvement, product diversion, demand for domestic travel, increased sustainability, digitalization, ecologization and partnership.

|DIGITAL RUBLE ISSUE|
|The state economies of our time are faced with the urgent task of developing innovative campaigns to address issues of digital financial asset management. This trend is caused by the development of technological systems for providing financial services and products on the world market. The proposed instrument for regulating digital banking is the integration into the domestic economy of a new form of money - the digital currency of the central bank (digital ruble). The purpose of the study is to form an idea about the issue of digital financial assets and, as a result, to develop an effective way to introduce digital financial assets "digital ruble" into the domestic financial infrastructure. The shortcomings of the existing domestic legislation regarding the regulation of exchange processes and regulation of the turnover of digital financial assets are revealed. The concepts of "issue of digital financial assets", "digital ruble" are disclosed. The processes of issuing the digital ruble, the planned turnover in the domestic financial system, the possibility of converting digital financial assets being introduced into cash and non-cash money are considered. The position of the digital ruble in the structure of the domestic money supply is determined. Potential problems in the economic system in the process of integrating the digital ruble into it are noted. The processes of pricing and fixing the value of digital financial assets are considered. The analysis of the issue of digital financial assets showed a technical flaw and a general limitation in the functionality of the digital ruble, which is supposed to be integrated.
Keywords: digital financial assets, digital ruble, digital currency, ICO project, cryptocurrency, issue, internet banking.
♦ the digital ruble planned by the Central Bank of Russia to be introduced into the domestic economic system is not a full-fledged digital financial asset;
♦ the digital ruble, in the process of being introduced into the domestic economic field, acquires properties characteristic of another type of fiat money;
♦ the introduction of the central bank`s digital currency (digital ruble) into the Russian financial system will lead to a change in the structure of the money supply, reducing the volume of aggregators M0, M1.
