Abstract


The economy of developed countries is increasingly based on knowledge, on human capital as a factor of economic growth and a huge resource of socio-economic development of the country as a whole. This is quite evident in the example of such States as Japan, South Korea, Germany, which are significantly ahead of the Russian Federation in this area. Thus, South Korea with a population of 53 million people and a territory half the size of our Kamchatka, in nominal GDP for 2018 is ahead of the huge Russia with its natural resources. And a country like Singapore surpasses the Russian Federation several times in GDP per capita. In our country, human capital does not yet reach quality indicators comparable to the developed countries of the world and is not always a decisive factor in the innovative development of regions and the national economy. Therefore, the modernization of human capital in the Russian Federation is becoming a priority in the state economic and social policy, one of the most important directions for achieving the strategic goals and objectives defined in the May (2018) Decree of the President of the Russian Federation. In this article, the authors consider the political elite of the country in the context of its determining impact on the human capital of Russia and its impact on the socio-economic development and prosperity of the country.
