This article discusses the evolution of socialism in Yugoslavia. Some of the problems facing Yugoslavia are particular to Yugoslavia, and in them history and geography speak. But many of the most pressing are those, which every community of nations is experiencing today in both East and West, problems of international regionalism or of supranational centralism. Only a few years ago Yugoslavia was presented as an example of a country with one of the highest growth rates in the world; now the foremost aim of economic policy is to reduce investment. It is commonly agreed that the Reform is not progressing at a very satisfactory rate. One of the reasons may be that the Federal Government finds itself in a difficult position, struggling with the overt or covert resistance of the high bureaucracy which on one occasion discreetly puts on the brakes, at another pushes the reform measures to unrealizable and absurd lengths. The heated debates in the federal parliament, exclusively composed of Communists, where bills are passed with a majority of 4 or 6, show how far the process of liberalization has gone. On the other hand, they manifest the strength of the opposition to concrete reform.
