Social risks of Siberian development

Russia’s might will grow with Siberia...
M.V. Lomonosov
The article examines the social aspects of regional development, identifies its social threats: poverty, an archaic social framework with a large share of extremely poor households, small middle class, and a minuscule percentage of the rich against highly concentrated wages. We notice significant disparities in economic stratification among regions. In most entities of the Siberian Federal District, living standards are going down, and real household incomes have decreased. It is concluded that the past eighteen years have seen no substantial positive changes in the structure of the technological paradigm of the Russian economy. Economic modernization is the main reserve for improving Siberians’ living standards and quality of life.
