Theoretical Questions Regarding the Structure of the Economy


  • L. Abalkin


Developed socialism, even at its initial stage, can significantly increase the possibilities for the resolution of far-reaching economic and social problems. A necessary and essential condition for the exploitation of these possibilities, for the rational use of existing economic potential, and for the multiplication of the fruits of collective labor is an economic mechanism built on solid foundations. This is of particular importance today insofar as "our task," as Iu. V. Andropov wrote in an article called "The Teachings of Karl Marx and Certain Questions Regarding the Building of Socialism in the USSR,"1 "which is to improve and restructure our economic mechanism as well as the forms and methods of its management, has not kept pace with the needs of Soviet society at this stage of its material and technical and social and spiritual development."
