Abstract

The possibilities of cost-benefit analysis are demonstrated when estimating en efficiency of investments in development of children in disadvantageous gamilies in Russia. In Russia, There are no programs similar to the High/Scope Perry Preschool in the U.S.A., and in this preliminary analysis we assume that hypothetical Russian analog of the High/Scope Perry Preschool gives similar results for children involved. But economic and social benefits are estimated taking into account Russian realities: education and health systems, people incomes, tax system, crime etc. We estimate present value of social and economic benefits resulting from the program implementation per child involved. This allows us to calculate maximal costs of hypothetical Russian program up to which it is profitable.
