Abstract Note

Likely to become the definitive work on the subject, this book provides a comprehensive account of the structure, conduct, and performance of the centrally-planned economies of 26 nations. While the book is highly relevant to current events in Eastern Europe, its subject will continue to be studied even when the events become history. - ;This book provides a comprehensive account of the structure, conduct, and performance of the centrally-planned economies of Eastern Europe, the former USSR, Communist China, and the Marxist LDCs, looking at 26 nations in all. The author focuses on reform, perhaps the most important issue facing countries such as the USSR, Poland, Hungary, and China. Bureaucracy, soft budget constraints, markets, and the nature of the socialist state are the central issues that arise in the course of reforming a socialist economy. The first half of the book deals with `classical socialism' and provides a theoretical summary of the main features of a now closed period of history. The second half deals with the processes of reform and concludes that the reform of classical socialist systems is doomed to failure as they are unable to renew themselves internally. - ;I: Points of Departure: The Subject and Method; Antecedents and Prototypes of the System; II: The Anatomy of the Classical System: Power; Ideology; Property; Co-ordination Mechanisms; Planning and Direct Bureaucratic Control; Money and Price; Investment and Growth; Employment and Wages; Shortage and Inflation: The Phenomena; Shortage and Inflation: The Causes; Consumption and Distribution; External Economic Relations; The Coherence of the Classical System; III: Shifting from the Classical System: The Dynamics of the Changes; The `Perfection' of Control; Political Liberalization; The Rise of the Private Sector; Self-Management; Market Socialism; Price Reforms; Macro Tensions - ;`the most comprehensive analysis of socialist economics ever written. It is lucid and well-structured ... This might be the definitive work on socialist economics. The greatest student of socialist economics has produced his grand oeuvre.' Anders Aslund, Director, Stockholm Institute of Soviet and East European Economics - ;A definitive analysis by a leading scholar -
