Abstract


Russia and Germany are traditionally considered to be countries with the social orientation of the economy. These countries are also close in terms of the share of real sector of economy in their GDP. And, although it is in Germany that the social market economy originated, which largely determined its leadership in the global economy, in the context of today’s crisis of the welfare state, the search of a new development model is as relevant for it as it is for Russia which has set off on the way to modernization and the neoindustrialization. The article suggests a hypothesis about the formation of a new development model which combines the social orientation of economy, the processes of the neo-industrialization and globalization. At the same time, social orientation is the main goal of socio-economic development, neo-industrialization is the way to achieve it, and globalization is the criterion that provides for more efficient use of resources. It is provided a summary of the theoretical basis for the development of a “social state” in the works of the German and Russian scholars who laid the foundations of economic humanism, which allowed to prove the futility of modernization which is implemented without due consideration of the deep mental bases and the civilization codes of the nation’s development. The methodological approaches to the formation of a new model of neo-industrial social state have been developed, which identifies several levels: global, national, local, individual, and suggested a methodology to assess the factors and conditions of its development. The method is tested on the example of Russia and Germany. The conducted comparative analysis allowed to come to the conclusion about the common nature of the targets, initial conditions, problems and the ways to their solution in these countries, which has to be taken into consideration in the development of the socioeconomic strategy and policy of the countries, as well as in the cooperation between them.
