The importance of obtaining skills and relevant knowledge on financial literacy for successful economic socialization in an era of unstable and rapidly changing global economics. Economic socialization refers to those processes through which people learn to operate effectively in the economic sphere of society, processes of formation of economic and psychological characteristics of the individual. Confirmed that economic socialization is the formation in the person of economic thinking on the basis of its knowledge of economic reality, assimilation of economic knowledge, acquisition of skills of economic behavior and realization of them in real reality. The process of economic socialization of an individual is associated with his social conditions of different levels: with the socio-economic problems of society, with everyday life that occurs in different groups, with the influence of various means carried out by various agents of socialization, their own social experience. Consequently, on the basis of the conducted theoretical analysis and empirical research was determined that for the citizens of Ukraine, meaningful groups of economic values were values that are due to peculiarities of the transition economy namely: “Free services”, “Private property”, “Professional self-realization”, “Human values”, “Economic opportunities of the family”, “Economic experience, education”.</p> <p>Determined that priority directions of creation of the integral system of financial education are the development of psychologically grounded educational programs of integrated education for schoolchildren and students of educational institutions, the spread of the practice of integrating financial elements in the curriculum of various subjects, the development of a number of optional financial programs for schoolchildren, students the introduction of the course&nbsp; “Financial literacy” taking into account the peculiarities of transition to profile education, activation of the workshops, photo, video and animation courses.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Tetiana Melnychuk ##submission.copyrightStatement## Thu, 12 Apr 2018 00:00:00 +0300 INNER WORLD AS THE SYSTEM WITH THE HIGH LEVEL OF NONLINEARITY <p>The article analyzes substantial difference of «inner world» system from other systems of high complexity and non-linearity which constitutes in its dirigibility (applicable not only to static inner structure, but to the very dynamics of inner world) by the factor, externally related to the system itself – a person who obtains this system. It is proved that personality, and only it, comes forward as the subject of its own inner world. It is mentioned that inner world has such necessary parameters, as high complexity level, increased non-linearity, efficiency and structuredness (and hierarchy subsequently), singularity, abilities of productivity, development and self-development. It is underlined that realization of administrative and regulatory (in fact, subject) functions in relation to inner world takes place through its structurization and re-structurization, mainly through the process of fully external activity. The idea is investigated that development of the system, its self-organization and creation of structures, inevitably requires the state of system unfirmness. It is achieved by presence and simultaneous intrasystem activity of two forces, identical by power rates but directed oppositely. It is underlined that one of those forces assists creation of structures, but at the same time increases heterogeneities in the environment (taking into account heterogeneous nature of the structure). Conclusion is drawn, that this process assists oppositions emergence and thus generates the second force intended for structures dispersion and erosion of all heterogeneities of the system. Action of this force disables structural fromation. But the process of development does not terminate completely. This force generates chaos, and on microlevel it comes forward not as destruction factor, but as force, which leads to self-structurization by appearance of nonlinear environment (attractor). It is notes that systems, similar to human psyche, include so-called «strange attractor» - future state of the system. It is summarized, that this theory does not abolish determinism: existence and development of inner world of a person still determine his/her future.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Mykola Papucha ##submission.copyrightStatement## Thu, 12 Apr 2018 00:00:00 +0300 COMBAT STRESS AND RESULTS OF ITS EMPIRICAL STUDY <p>The article deals with the phenomenology of combat stress and the conditions for its emergence.
