This book is an analysis of the
economic system which was developed in the USSR after the "economic reforms"
of 1965-66 - an analysis made on the basis of a mass of evidence taken
almost exclusively from official Soviet economic journals.
Taking into account the virtual
abolition of centralised economic planing, the introduction of profit as
the regulator of production, the vesting of effective ownership and "hiring
and firing" rights in industrial management, and the inequitable distribution
of enterprise profit between managerial and shop floor personnel, the author
reached the conclusion - as the title indicates - that by the 1970s the
soviet economy had become essentially a restored capitalist system masquerading
under red flags which are no longer appropriate.
