Structural Influences and their Contribution to Industrial Expansion
Reconsidering now the previous chapters from a viewpoint fifteen to twenty-five years later, it is first necessary to take account of structural changes in the interim. At just about the time when the main part of this book was finished a major reorganization of the industrial and planning structure took place: the sovnarkhoz reform. Detailed accounts of this can be found in works by various writers,1 and need not be duplicated here. Following only a summary description I shall consider its structural origins and such results as are relevant to the theme.
