Issues of Price and Subsidy in the Arts in The U.S.S.R
AbstractCulture is one of the branches of the national economy of the Soviet Union where cost-based relations have not been sufficiently developed, where basic decisions, dictated by the objective requirements of social progress, are made on the basis of social, rather than cost-related criteria. And one of the most notable features in this area is the planned deficit of the majority of arts enterprises. Their unprofitability is conditioned mainly by a specific price setting policy which in turn clearly reflects a particular orientation. A political-economic justification of prices for cultural goods and services is seen to be lacking. The role of producer-consumer relations and of the law of value which governs them are discussed as possible causes. A theoretical justification of the very principles of determining and implementing prices, as well as of their interaction with other elements in producer-consumer relations is outlined
