The article is devoted to the problems of social policy of modern Russia. The practice of developed countries of the world has convincingly shown that correct social policy is an important factor in the formation of human capital. The experience of many European countries shows that thanks to a purposeful social policy the state together with educational institutions, parents can not only form a harmoniously developed personality, but also provide a high standard of living, develop abilities and talents that are in demand by society.

Human capital, as is known, is a collection of knowledge, skills, and other personality traits that are used in socially useful work. The application of the concept of “human capital” allows us to understand the role of social institutions, to clarify not only social parameters, but also to conduct an economic analysis of the influence of the social factor on the market economy.

According to the theory of “human capital”, which was developed in the last century, the improvement of human qualities in the spheres of education and health provides the creation of economic resources of durable use. Education provides the necessary knowledge, forms skills, transforms the labor force, giving it the ability to highly skilled productive work, and healthcare increases the time and intensity of the use of human capital.

In analyzing the problems of social policy in modern capitalist Russia, the authors of the article concentrated mainly on an analysis of the causes that led to social stratification and the growth of poverty. Considerable attention is paid to social policy during the period of permanent economic crises that have become a characteristic phenomenon for post-Soviet Russia.
