Stabilizing the Soviet Economy

Author

Abstract

The proposals in our policy memorandum on economic stabilization -- a restrictive monetary policy and a fiscal policy that eliminates the government deficit -- are shaped by our view that the Soviet Union today faces a mounting economic crisis. As we emphasized in our discussion in the policy memorandum, problems include issues of inefficient economic structures, distorted prices, large macroeconomic imbalances, divided government, and lack of popular support for steps to stabilize and restructure the economy.
