The paper examines the relationship between the state's economic policy and progress as a fundamental public value. On the basis of their analysis, opinions were developed in connection with the criticism of the knowledgeoriented cognition theory. Criticism is not directed against progress but only against the position that overestimates the cognitive abilities of the mind. The digital world created by scientific and technological progress completely changes the attitude towards progress (as a social value). The general goal of the policy of development of the digital economy is also considered in the work. It is justified that this goal is constantly changing. This happens because the goal follows from the postmodern paradigm of development processes and focuses on people.
