An Overview: The Bureaucracy and the Plan

  • H. Stephen Gardner


Before we begin our in-depth analyses of the individual agencies engaged in foreign trade decision-making, it will serve us well to survey the landscape and take a preliminary reading of how the agencies are, as it might be said, organically related. The joint activity of these agencies that is most fully described in the Soviet literature is the preparation of a variety of plans, including those for foreign economic relations. Later in this chapter we shall review the composition of those plans and the participation of the various agencies in their compilation.
