[Twenty-Five Theses on Governmental Activities in the Social Sphere]

Listed author(s):
  • Rubinstein Alexander Yakovlevich

Содержанием настоящей статьи является авторский ответ на пять ключевых вопросов о деятельности государства в социальной сфере: почему государство должно поддерживать социальную сферу? Каково экономическое содержание расходов государства в этой сфере? Сколько бюджетных средств ей нужно? Какие методы финансирования эффективны? В каком правовом пространстве функционирует социальная сфера? В основе ответов на эти общие вопросы лежит теория рынков опекаемых благ, продолжающая исследования в области . В связи с этим в статье рассмотрены продукты , общественные и мериторные блага, сформулированы критерий принадлежности товаров и услуг к классу опекаемых благ, а также универсальный мотив общественной опеки. Кроме того, в статье обсуждаются прикладные аспекты предложенной теории, в иных тонах освещающие закономерности функционирования общественного сектора и непосредственно государственную деятельность, указывающие на необходимость принципиального пересмотра экономических основ социальной политики и ее правового регулирования. The article presents the author's replies to five basic questions related to governmental activities in the social sphere, namely: Why should the state support the social sphere? What is the economic essence of governmental social expenditures? How much budget money is needed? What methods of funding are efficient? What is the legal framework of the social sphere functioning? The answers to these general questions are based on patronized goods markets theory, which further develops the research into 'Economic Sociodynamics'. In this connection the articles discusses the products of 'Baumol economy', public and merit goods, formulates the criterion of treating goods and services as category of patronized goods, and a universal motive for public protection. Besides, selected applied aspects of the proposed theory are discussed, thus casting a new light on the regularities of public sector functioning and immediate governmental activities - all this points to the need to principally revise the economic foundations of social policy and its legal regulation.
