The results of the first post-war plan were, likewise, examined by several Western economists, including Naum Jasny and Abram Bergson, as well as the Economic Commission for Europe.

Based on a system of state ownership, the Soviet economy was managed through Gosplan (the State Planning Commission), Gosbank (the State Bank) and the Gossnab (State Commission for Materials and Equipment Supply).

But the tempos were never reached again. At the outset of the first five year plan inStalin instituted impossibly high production figures for factories to stir up zeal.

As Kenez points out, the unrealistic optimism of these goals can be seen by the fact that many of goals party leaders choose for industries were not reached until (Kenez, 90).Author: Joshua R Keefe.
