Abstract

This chapter attempts to reveal the extent of the ample supply of natural and human resources at the disposal of Soviet planners. Upon reviewing the evidence, it becomes plausible to visualize that these immense reserves of inputs together with the stranglehold of the central planning system (CPS) on the economy have influenced the technological requirements determined by Communist policy to achieve economic growth. The management of R&D was influenced in the same process, as it was intrinsic to the level of technology demanded from above.
