The BRICS countries are undergoing a decisive economic and social transition towards a knowledge-based economy. In this new economy, innovation activities are the cornerstone of economic dynamics and mechanisms of value creation. Therefore, the construction and development process of NISsis an essential element in the process of transformation towards a knowledge-based economy and strengthening the competitive position of BRICS countries globally. This study aims to analyze the factors’ structure of NISs in the BRICS countries, taking into account that these countries are undergoing a rapid and radical change in terms of national economic models. It also aims to analyze NIS impacts on the key economic and social development indicators. In order to achieve these objectives, we analyzed a set of indicators of NISs that reflect the main dimensions of these systems: innovation, institutional, infrastructural and educational dimensions. In addition to an economic and social development dimension in these countries during the period 2000–2015. Regarding the methodology, the panel data analysis was used to analyze the relationship between the dimensions of NISs and the economic performance in the BRICS countries combined. The results showed that there are structural differences among the BRICS countries in terms of NISs dimensions. Where the Russian innovation system is the best national innovation system among the BRICS countries, while the innovation system in India has the lowest performance. The analysis of the overall relationship between the dimensions of NISs and economic performance showed a significant positive relationship. While the partial analysis in each country showed clear structural differences among studied countries.

To maintain competitiveness and sustainable development, modern companies need to innovate in technology products, services and business models. There are 2 types of business models: "pipeline" (traditional) and platform (ecosystems). Currently platforms are developing and penetrating into various branches of business and life. The paper compares traditional and ecosystem business models. There are 2 types of ecosystems: transactional and innovative. In the paper the competitive advantages of ecosystems by the example of Windows, Apple, Android, and others are examined. For example, a two-way Windows platform (because it connects developers and application users) is of little value in itself, but it gives access to a quantity of different programs (complementary products) and the mass of ecosystem users. On the other hand, Apple's platform uses the network effect: the increase in the number of users increases the value for developers, which generates the same effects in the opposite direction. The benefits of ecosystem participants are indicated. The platform holder dictates terms of the ecosystem and receives monopoly profits. There is also an ecosystem effect when the value of the platform grows without the efforts of the platform holder. At the same time, the platform business is estimated at times higher than the traditional one. For application producers, the ecosystem provides access to a large market. Clients of the ecosystem can save time and effort, users receive a large number of necessary functions. At the same time, platform holders do not monopolize the production of applications, otherwise competition will fail. As a consequence, there will be a decline in application quality and price increase, and most importantly - the value of the ecosystem for its members will decrease. Considering technological progress tendency of ecosystem collisions is up-to-date. In conclusion, the perspectives of firms' survival in the context of the spread of ecosystems are considered, as there are a lot of competitive "pipeline" firms in the world at the moment.
This article discusses the indicators of social quality of life of the population: employment, unemployment, arrears of wages, wage indexation, efficiency of the state employment service.

Spatial and economic transformations caused by the invasion of intellectual systems in our lives have exacerbated the problem of labor market shrinkage. The article makes some assumptions about what humanity expects in the near future with respect to the transformation of the labor market. Using the historical-empirical approach, the author comes to the conclusion about the possibility of an optimistic scenario of harmonization of machine-human relations in the labor market. Potentially, this can be a natural (spontaneous) request specifically for the work of a person in some professions or an artificial (legislative, adopted due to external management) decision to involve human labor, as well as various compensation mechanisms. As an alternative to unemployment and the need to pay citizens benefits can be getting jobs for a salary commensurate with basic income. However, the current situation is radically different from everything that was before. First, in the past, the pace of progress has allowed the labor market to adapt relatively gently to new technologies. The current speed of progress leads to multiple changes in social and economic life in the eyes of one generation. Secondly, for the first time the cars encroached on the main thing that determines a person - on his mind. Man cannot compete with the intellectual power of modern machines, capable of analyzing and making decisions much faster. Proceeding from this, the development curve of the situation is seen pessimistically. Obviously, the situation depends on the answer to the question of what artificial intelligence can do, or rather, what it is incapable of. Can robots solve any problems? And if we assume that they cannot do something, then, consequently, it is there that the possible segment of jobs for a person is viewed. The author tries to guess what competencies people should have who want to find a workplace in the digital civilization and show the need for the preparation of humanity to change the socio-economic paradigm of consciousness.
The research presented in the article was initiated by changes in the monetary policy of the Central Bank of Russia. In the past, 2017 the period of high deposit rates established in the banking system of the Russian Federation in connection with the introduction of economic sanctions in 2014 was completed. The monetary policy of the Central Bank (CB), conducted at this time, is characterized by a decrease in the key rate, which means that the deposit rates of deposits and bond yields will decline. Actual in these conditions are the answers to the questions: what in these conditions can expect individuals or private investors, most of whom prefer to accumulate savings in deposits, and what can their strategy be. The methods of probability-statistical analysis, matrix analysis and Markov chains are used in the work. Empirical data are taken from the published data of the state corporation «Deposit Insurance Agency» (DIA). The results of the study are alternative scenarios and the corresponding types of strategies for the implementation of savings. The strategy of each scenario is visualized by graphic models. The strategy of each of the scenarios is visualized by graphic models. The models show the accumulative possibilities of using cash deposits in accordance with the strategies of the three scenarios (active, conservative and cyclical) in the current climate of monetary policy easing of the Central Bank of Russia. Merits and demerits of the revealed strategy are considered. The conclusion to which the authors came suggests that for a private investor preferring to place funds in deposits in the conditions of a possible further lowering of the Central Bank's key rate, the most effective strategy will be cyclical investment.

The article reveals the content of economic capital concept, explores approaches to its estimation, assesses the implementation of economic capital concept in the national banking system, identifies problems, possible directions for development and convergence of the Russian approach with international requirements. As a result, the need to apply the model of economic capital in estimation of bank capital is substantiated. The change in trends in bank regulation (the actions of supervisors in matters of capital adequacy acquired a risk-oriented nature that takes into account the risks assumed by each bank and the quality of their management) led to the emergence in 2004 of the concept of economic capital reflected in the document "International Convergence of Capital Measurement and standards of capital: new approaches"(Basel II). According to this concept, commercial banks must have sufficient capital to cover not only credit, market, but also operational risks. Thus, economic capital takes into account all the risk circumstances that a bank institution may have. The need to apply the method of economic capital in bank capital estimation is justified and significant.
