This assessment of the feasibility of the Soviet Tenth Five-Year Plan was the result of analysis employing the SRI-WEFA Econometric Model of the Soviet Union. The current version of the model, SOVMOD II, has been developed during the course of the past two years through the combined efforts of economists from Stanford Research Institutes Strategic Studies Center and Wharton Econometric Forecasting Associates. This assessment, based on the Basic Guidelines for the Soviet economy for 1976-80 which was published in the Soviet Press following its approval at the 25th Communist Party Congress, represents one of the several issues areas chosen for application of the SRI-WEFA Model, both because of its importance to U.S. policy planners, and its usefulness in illustrating the models capabilities.
