The article explains the significance of the nanoeconomic approach in the study of the socioeconomic leadership of a separate economic agent (individual) and why it may be reasonable to consider the nanolevel to be the initial level of economic relations. It is proved that in the information economy based on knowledge, the role of the person who is the bearer and creator of new knowledge increases, which creates prerequisites for individual socioeconomic leadership. The multifunctional roles of an individual as a consumer, as the saving agent and investor, as an owner of a microenterprise, as a free agent, as a person, as a creator, and as a disseminator of ideas and innovations are revealed using the nanoeconomic approach to the analysis of consumer, financial, labor, entrepreneurial, and innovative behavior. In conclusion, the main principles of the space-temporal model are for the development of socioeconomic leadership of modern man in the new economy.
