In September and October 1965 the Soviet authorities resolved upon measures to improve planning and the management of socialist enterprises and to enhance the role of economic incentives in industrial production. Since 1965 the decisions in question have been gradually implemented and are spoken of as ‘economic reforms’. By the beginning of 1970 almost three-quarters of all industrial enterprises (which produce over 83 per cent of aggregate output) had been incorporated into the new system of planning. The reform is now in progress not only in the rest of industry but in agriculture, construction, transport and trade.
