The purpose of this paper is to discuss certain recent changes in Soviet labor policy which have been forced upon the Soviet leadership by the logic of this new order. The Soviet internal changes, as far as they go, do not tend to alter the basic tenets of Soviet rule they are only an attempt to adjust these tenets to the requirements of a smoother and more efficient operation of the Soviet model of a modern industrial society. This is true of the reforms in the economic sphere, as well as the political. Of the economic reforms, recent changes in the field of industrial relations are geared primarily to the basic problem of any modern economy -- labor productivity.
