Abstract

In the article on the example of the implementation of rail transport is considered "mobilization" for economic development during the first Soviet five-year plans. It was found that as a result it was not possible to achieve higher growth in freight volumes and high-quality performance in comparison with the period of the recovery taking place in the conditions of the NEP. The increase in traffic was extremely unstable and did not meet the needs of the economy, which, in turn, did not provide a supply of railway production resources in the required quantities. It is shown that in the first five years, a system of universal shortage, but the development was characterized by significant imbalances, inefficiency and low innovation. The conclusion about the need to implement innovative model of market-oriented economic development.
