Conference paper

Abstract

From the very inception of Eastern European co-operation right after World War II, one of the principal purposes of fostering closer interstate economic interaction has been the promotion of the exchange of scientific-technological information. Indeed, irrespective of one’s predisposition with regard to the wisdom of simply transplanting the Soviet development strategy and its accompanying economic model to Eastern Europe, one of its outstanding features has been the emphasis on development per se. This has prevailed ever since the unsettling conversion to a peacetime economy; the postwar shifts in territorial, social, and property relations; and the political convulsions engendered by the postwar turmoil. The deliberate choice of output growth has been stressed almost regardless of the cost of placing industrialization at a breakneck pace among the top priorities of the socialist leadership’s policy agenda.
