The model of social policy implemented in the country, is entirely determined by the features of the existing socio-economic system. For countries where the economy is built on the basis of social-democratic approaches, the most characteristic of the Scandinavian model of social policy. In countries with a reduced role of the state in the economy is used residual and institutional types of social policy. Conservative type of social policy is a reflection of the social market economy. Russia doesn't fit in any of these models as its socio-economic system has a rather contradictory structure: features of early and late capitalism, something from the socialist past and you can even find some characteristic features of feudal society. It is a low wage, the highest in the world differentiation of property and income that do not correspond to today's realities, the system of compulsory social insurance.
