The authors show that in the beginning of the XXI century a radical turn took place that has changed trends prevalent in the late XX century. Today it is the BRICS who shows rapid economic, technological, sociocultural development, increases its geopolitical influence. At the same time, the “Group of Seven” countries suffer from accelerated decline in economic growth and gross capital formation, invention, innovation and investment activity.
