    Charles Bettelheim, in the preface of his book,Problemas Teóricos y Prácticos de la Planificatión, likewise says that “planning is only possible if the economic contradictions deriving from the private ownership of the means of production are eliminated and replaced by social property.” Madrid: Editorial Tecnos, 1962, p. 19. Finally, Eugene Varga, a prominent Hungarian economist, affirms that “a society can only plan the economy if the means of production, or in the extreme case their most decisive part, are socialist property.”Cuba Socialista, No. 8, April 1962, Havana, p. 95.Google Scholar

    This has been affirmed, among others, by P. A. Baran, Charles Bettelheim, and Eugene Varga. The first writes “that it is impossible to effect any planning deserving of that name, in a society in which the means of production remain under the control of private interests which manage them with the purpose of achieving maximum profits (or guarantees or other particular advantages) for their owners.”El Trimestre Económico, No. 115, July-September 1962, Mexico, D.F., p. 453.Google Scholar
