Many efforts of the executive power and legislators undermine the incentives of the physical persons to invest in the social sphere both in the financial form and in the form of social activity. Analyzed examples of the social policy in Canada and in other countries with transition economies underline this issue the solution of which is not connected with additional burden on the budget and could have made social institutions in Russia more stable to external economic shocks.
