The subject of this research is the experience of origination, initial consolidation and historical development of the constitutional legal regulation of economy, fundamental economic-legal phenomena and economic rights in the national constitution of the world’s states. The goal of the work is to demonstrate the common and exceptional methods of legal mediation of economic development, determine the legal peculiarities of establishment of the material being of states and peoples, assess the political legal conditions for structuring of the constitutional “carcass” of economic life of the states and peoples. Alongside the basic historical-comparative method, the author used the systemic, logical, and normative-value approaches. The application of the indicated methods, as well as the specific, synergetic, and methodological ideas allowed revealing the objectively conditioned sustainable trends of legalization of economic pretensions, and detect the random processes that historically found reflection in constitutional regulation. As a result, the authors determined the potential and constructive capabilities of legal solution of the economic-social tasks, ensuring of legal forms of economic management, stabilization and development of economic routine. The scientific novelty consists in conclusion that the constitutions of states, as well as the system of national legal regulation overall, is a procreation of its era, serve as the reflection of the relevant placement of social forces, and manifest as an “economic portrait” of the state in a specific life cycle of the politically organized society.

Keywords: constitutions of European states, human rights guarantees, economic rights, valid constitution, way of economic life, economic aspirations, economic interests, constitutionalism ethics, concept of economic constitution, constitutions of Latin American states
