The paper analyses the impact of the emerging digital society on the evolution of the role played by efficiency and fairness in the competitiveness of contemporary socio-economic models and highlights the reasons provide this evolution. The author dwells on developing of economical society, the confrontation of efficiency and justice. This confrontation is traditional one and recently is replaced by their equal coexistence, growing into the priority of justice as a major condition for modern progress in the future. It allows us to consider incomplete socio-economic reforms in modern Russia. It is generally associating with the disregard of society's usual understanding of justice, which automatically failed any social reforms
