Socio-economic status of the median region of Russia

Insufficient consideration or ignoring the spatial factor, as a rule, leads to serious errors in the management of socio-economic development of any economic object on macro, meso, mini- or micro level of the economy. Spot, formal representation of economic processes makes it impossible to take into account the diverse positive and negative impact on the development of the regions (especially regions, the transport component of production costs, etc.). It is well known old Russian proverb characterizing spatial factor: "Beyond the Sea heifer - mite, but the ruble ferry!". Simple human experience that are not taken into account the spatial factor in economic management is impossible. This is even more true in the management of the development of a large regional socio-economic system of rank economic area or the Federal District.
