The Economic Reform in Czechoslovakia, 1966–69
The economic reform in Czechoslovakia, in the form it existed at the beginning of 1969, was the result of a gradual development. Its progress was furthered by political events, primarily the change in political leadership and the Soviet led invasion in August 1968. These events radicalised the reformers; they naturally tried to utilise the change in political leadership for a more consistent reform and, after the occupation of Czechoslovakia, attempted to democratise the management structure, as, inter alia, a defence against interference in the reform. Needless to say, the economic reform made some contribution to these political events.
