The Political Economy of the USSR

  • Bob Arnot


In order to begin to answer the questions posed at the end of the last chapter, it is necessary to consider the way in which Soviet political economists and their western counterparts regard the question of work and class structure. This is not an exhaustive treatment of the question, but is intended to point out common limitations in their work before developing an alternative analysis of work and labour in the USSR, linked specifically to the present performance of the Soviet economy. In this way, a more adequate political economy can be constructed which will provide the basis for explaining the motivation for the Shchekino experiment and the other experimental initiatives considered in later chapters.
