>p>The problem of determining the scale of obsolesence is not only of theoretical interest, but is of major practical significance as well. Under the conditions of rapid technical progress characteristic of the development of a socialist economy, particularly in its present stage, discovery of the effect of obsolescence upon amortization rates, and consequently upon calculation of costs of production is of extraordinary importance.>/p>>p>Obsolescence is a process of depreciation of fixed capital and reduction in its value due to the rise in the productivity of the labor of society.
