Abstract in different language: One of the basic preconditions of successful regional politics and its effective implementation in a particular economic environment is knowledge of this environment - the region, its strengths and weaknesses, opportunities for development as well as threats. Regional politics should be regula- ted by a set of rules respecting the figures indicating the position of the region in the economy, its dimensions or obstacles to its development, its relationship to other regions and the possibility to be compared to other regions. Practical regional politics is expected to contribute to eliminating disparities among individual regions, above all by identifying the causes of the disparities and cho- osing appropriate means of elimination. The current theory of regional politics provides several ap- proaches to identifying, measuring and evaluating the causes of disparities, and diminishing them. In spite of that, the real social and economic development gives evidence that disparities continue to grow and result in a mismatch between the needs and the sources of development, especially in those regions of Slovakia that have been under-developed for a longer time. The paper highlights the problem of deepening regional disparities in Slovakia on the level of NUTS 3 resulting from the development of average nominal wage, which is a major indicator of social and economic develop- ment of regions and living standard of the population. The growing differences in average nominal wage lead to negative stimuli at work and in business, and aggravate the lagging behind of the region and have a negative impact on the other regions and politics of their development.
