Abstract
One of the main features of the informational society is the strengthening of the meritocratic trends' role as well as the emergence and formation of the meritocracy itself. This paper analyzes the genesis of meritocracy in the context of the general transit of elites from the industrial to post-industrial world. Attention is drawn to the change of the agenda and the nature of elite breeding itself. It is noted that these changes are taking place against the background of the overall decline in professionalism and personal qualities of the political elites subjects, which opens up very good civilizational prospects for the meritocracy and its constructive development.
