The Concept Of Territory’s Socioeconomic Genotype


The article presents the concept of socioeconomic genotype of territories as an emerging field of research at the intersection of genetics and economics. According to authors’ opinion, any region has its own peculiarities that are inherited by generations and influence the social and economic development of its territory. The paper develops a conceptual and categorical apparatus in the field of economic genetics. A region is defined as a socio-economic organism with multi-layered memory. Based on this memory the structure of the economic functioning of its society is reproduced. The authors give definitions to such concepts as social and economic genotype, genetic profile of a region, region’s genetic codes. The genetic codes of a region determine its predisposition to transformations. Different types of such codes are described. The application of the genetic approach can increase the socio-economic efficiency of decisions made by public authorities and adapt the decisions to the specifics of a particular territory.
