The Soviet Seven Year Plan
A discussion of the new Soviet Seven Year Plan for 1959-1965 and of Khrushchev's prediction that in fifteen years the USSR will "take the first place in the world not only in total output but also in per-capita production." The United States cannot afford to ignore this objective of output expansion as set forth in Soviet national policy. The feasibility of Soviet industrial and agricultural goals is examined, as well as their import for East-West relations. Khrushchev has good reason to be pleased with the rate at which industrial progress is providing Soviet political strategy with the material means for progressing toward the outcome postulated by Marxism-Leninism.
