This article talks about the economic controversy in the Soviet Union. It notes that the Soviet government is not ready to allow profit alone to provide what is needed for the economy. Greater emphasis on profits might improve efficiency, but it most likely would mean the sacrifice both of administrative control and of the production of certain socially necessary goods. While there is a need to stimulate activity at the fringe of the economy, there are still major tasks, such as dam building, completion of the transportation network and expansion into Siberia, which can be undertaken only at the center. The challenge is to retain power enough at the center to undertake the major projects which still promise economies of scale without sacrificing the flexibility needed at the fringe.
