Abstract

Nowadays, the issue of inefficient social expenditures is not just a local item of social policy, rather it comes as far as the macroeconomic level, being considered in discussions about sources of financing of the national long-term development strategy. The author investigates into what it is all about. In general, three types of inefficient expenditures can be distinguished in analyzing social expenditures (the definitions are, of course, quite conventional).

Keywords: Russian economy, regional economy, social expenditure, social policy
