Abstract


The urgency of the research. In the early 90s of the last century, economists and scientists attributed Ukraine to the undisputed leaders due to the existing resource potential and predicted its rapid economic growth. Unfortunately, the predictions have not come true: over the last 25 years, Ukraine has lost its advantages on certain indicators. As for the positions, which have been saved, Ukraine should pay the unreasonably high price by the ecological and social conditions deterioration. Target setting. The question is how the other countries have coped with these problems. Moreover, in our opinion, the most valuable experience is the experience of post-socialist countries, which had the same problems as Ukraine had like adaptation problems to the market environment.
