National Traditions in a Socialist Economy


  • Iu. Bromlei
  • O. Shkaratan


In determining avenues and proportions of economic development, the analysis of the state of labor resources is of paramount importance. In planning practice (in the compilation of balances of labor resources), sex and age are already taken into account. The experimental methods used by economists and sociologists consider occupational, skill, and educational indicators.1 A significant part is also played by national (ethnic) characteristics of labor resources. In our opinion there are certain hidden reserves in this area for increasing the economic effectiveness of social production not only in the USSR but in all countries in the entire socialist community as well.
