Industry concept

One of the economic laws of the development of social production is the law of division and socialization of labor.

The law of the social division of labor determines the differentiation of labor activity and the socio-economic isolation of its carriers, and the laws of change and socialization of labor, on the contrary, imply the integration of the divided types of labor and thereby "remove" the effect of the law of the social division of labor.

Socialization of labor is the transformation of the labor process from individual to social in connection with the development and replacement of the means of production, requiring individual labor, means of production, requiring collective activity.

The development of the productive forces of the primitive community led to the individualization of labor, to the decomposition of joint labor based on primitive technology. This was manifested in the emergence of individual farms of peasants and artisans. Individual labor was especially widespread during the period of the decomposition of feudalism. The development of technology, commodity production and the deepening division of labor led to the appearance of more advanced means of production, which required the joint work of many people. Instead of independent farms of peasants and artisans, a capitalist manufactory arose, and subsequently a capitalist factory. The socialization of labor manifested itself in the creation of ever larger enterprises, in the development of specialization, cooperation and combination. The socialization of labor went beyond the framework of a separate factory, led to the formation of various forms of association of factories, to the establishment of ever deeper and more comprehensive ties between factories and associations.

Finally, all social production has turned into an organism in which all of its links were linked not only by the territorial division of labor, but by the division of labor in the production process itself, which is of a technological nature.

The law of division and socialization of labor systematically generates new industries and integrates them into the measure of economic feasibility. It is economic feasibility that determines the level and pace of the division and socialization of labor. The measure of economic feasibility in its most general form is the possibility of accelerating production growth rates, cheapening goods and services, improving their quality and, on this basis, competitiveness. All this is nothing more than the greatest satisfaction of the needs of society at the lowest cost.

with known resource limitations for a given time period.

Specific factors driving the constantly ongoing complex process of division and socialization of labor, expressed in its highest manifestation by the emergence of new industries and their integration, are scientific and technological progress, forms of organization

social production, the needs of the national economy, its capabilities, etc.

Studying social production over the entire historical period of its development, the largest authorities in economic science determined that it went through three stages, which corresponds to three types of division of labor.

At the first - the general stage of the division of labor, large branches of the national economy were formed - industry, agriculture, construction, transport, communications.

At the second stage of the division of labor, large branches of the national economy formed specialized branches of industry, agriculture, construction, transport, and communications.
The level of specialization of these industries is completely different, it is to some extent conditional and relative, which in practice necessitates their systematization into separate groups, complexes, etc.

The third - a single stage or rather a type of division of labor occurs at the enterprise itself with the potential for the emergence of new industries, which in the future can, under certain conditions, form an industry.

A sector is an area of ​​economic activity characterized by a certain unity of the functions, types and purpose of the product being created, applied, used technological

processes. At the same time, these are homogeneous organizations, enterprises, companies, firms engaged in the production of similar products, the implementation of similar work, the performance of similar services, and the satisfaction of similar needs.

Having emerged, the industry can function autonomously, independently with the presence of organizational and managerial structures, as part of more complex intersectoral corporate formations with corresponding general organizational and managerial structures and beyond. From this, the essence of the industry as an objectively existing specific sphere of material and intangible production, represented by a set of homogeneous primary cells of production - enterprises, market entities, business entities, does not change. Only the conditions for the functioning of the industry change from this — favorable or unfavorable, attractive or not, which ultimately determines the performance indicators of the functioning of the industry and its competitiveness.

As noted, the industry exists objectively as a set of homogeneous enterprises, regardless of its organizational design. However, an organizationally formed industry is developing more successfully, providing industry enterprises with more favorable conditions.

growth of production volumes, sales of products, increasing efficiency and competitiveness.

  3. The main branches of psychology
    Science seeks to reflect the complex psychic reality that is the subject of psychology in its essential properties and in a generalized form, i.e. in terms. Concepts ultimately constitute the framework of any science. Together, they form a categorical system. Category - an extremely broad concept, which reflects the most common and essential properties, signs, relationships and
  4. Industry structure
    The single economic complex of the country is represented by sectoral, intersectoral and territorial structures. The sectoral structure of the national economic complex is a set of sectors of the national economic complex, characterized by certain proportions and relationships. The sectoral structure of a single national economic complex is represented by two areas:
  5. Branches of psychology
    Modern psychology is a wide area of ​​knowledge, including a number of separate disciplines and scientific areas. The psyche is multidimensional. Its historical and social development led to the need to integrate many sciences that directly or indirectly addressed human life issues. According to S.L. Rubinshtein, the branches can be conditionally divided into main (basic)
  6. Branches of scientific psychology
    Modern psychology is a ramified system of industries, among which there are fundamental and applied, general and special. The fundamental branches of psychology are of general importance for understanding and explaining the psychology and behavior of people, no matter what specific activity they are engaged in. The main such industry is general psychology, which explores
  7. The main branches of psychology
    Modern psychology is a highly ramified science with many branches. The branches of psychology are relatively independent areas of scientific psychological research. In this case, due to the rapid development of psychological science every 4-5 years, new directions appear. The emergence of branches of psychology is due, firstly, to the widespread adoption of
  8. Healthcare as an industry
    The separation of the health care economy into a separate part of the national economy is determined by the unity of the type and purpose of the activity performed (health protection) and the technologies used (treatment technologies, medical technologies). To specify the industry affiliation of different types of industrial and economic activities, the following three types of industries are distinguished: 1) “pure”
  9. Place industry in the national economy
    Depending on the characteristic features that underlie the formation of the industry — on the purpose of the product and the level of social need for it, the nature of the raw materials used, the technology used, the place of the industry in the national economy is determined, which is estimated by a combination of a number of factors: • share of gross domestic product produced, • share of national
  10. Economic boundaries of the industry and the factors that determine them
    One of the first issues to be addressed in analyzing an industry is the question of its boundaries. What is included in this industry? This is not an easy task, as many industries are dynamic and develop very quickly. So, for example, in the 60s one could talk about the electronics industry, covering the entire range of goods manufactured in those years. Today, these are several new industries - household production
  11. Subject, branches and types of psychology
    Psychology studies the psyche in all its manifestations. Accordingly, the subject of psychology is the psyche. Modern psychology is divided into many sections. Such a division can be imagined in the form of a tree, which has a trunk and many branches. This is a tree of psychology. Its trunk is general psychology, which studies the psyche of a healthy adult.

  12. Branches of modern psychology
    Modern psychology is a whole complex of scientific disciplines, many of which claim to be considered independent sciences. Various authors count up to one hundred branches of psychology. These scientific disciplines are at different stages of development, associated with various areas of human practice. The core of modern psychology is general psychology, which studies
  13. Branches of scientific psychology
    As we recall, psychology became an independent science only at the end of the 19th century and during the 20th century accumulated such a huge amount of scientific knowledge about the world of psychic phenomena that psychologists themselves often do not quite clearly realize how much they know. Psychology has become a very ramified science, and specialists in one branch of psychology can no longer be sufficiently competent in another field.
  14. The main branches of psychology
    In discussing the connection of psychology with other sciences, we outlined, although far from completely, the circle of various psychological disciplines, that is, branches of psychology, thereby addressing the question of the structure of modern psychology. We will try to do this in a more systematic way, although this is not always easy: branches of psychology do not arise and develop by the will of a single methodologist prescribing science
