About this product
- DescriptionSocialist planning played an ermous role in the ecomic and political history of the twentieth century. Beginning in the USSR it spread round the world. It influenced ecomic institutions and ecomic policy in countries as varied as Bulgaria, USA, China, Japan, India, Poland and France. How did it work? What were its weaknesses and strengths? What is its legacy for the twenty-first century? Now in its third edition, this textbook is fully updated to cover the findings of the period since the collapse of the USSR. It provides an overview of socialist planning, explains the underlying theory and its limitations, looks at its implementation in various sectors of the ecomy, and places developments in their historical context. A new chapter analyses how planning worked in the defence-industrial complex. This book is an ideal text for undergraduate and graduate students taking courses in comparative ecomic systems and twentieth-century ecomic history.
