Abstract:

Economic regionalization in the USSR is an instrument employed by the Soviet regime in political and economic policies -- political in the sense of maintaining its power through proletarian centers of industrial workers and furthering the security of the country through regional self-sufficiency economic in the sense of industrializing underdeveloped parts of the country, reducing unnecessary long-distance freight hauls, and creating units for the local, quasi-autonomous planning of economic activities.
