Abstract:

This survey of modern Soviet economic growth is based almost exclusively on Western works and does not include direct references to Soviet scholarly work. It is directed to the general public of economists, and therefore contains a section on sources of economic information about the Soviet Union and several subsections, such as the one describing the basics of the operation of the Soviet system, that are only indirectly related to the main issue. Contents Introduction Availability and Reliability of Information The Growth Record Structural Changes The Socialist System and its Growth Strategy R D and Technological Change The R D Sector Why did Growth Rates Decline Production Function Estimates Evaluation and Conclusion-or, can The Trend be Reversed
