In the Kremlin's public view, one of the main activities of the Party is its leadership of the economy. The Party not only determines rules and plans for production but continuously influences daily economic activities down to the smallest economic units. In successive chapters, the author discusses many aspects of Soviet style in management, including inaction, not going to the end, scattering, intermittence, wasting time, failure to calculate, unevenness, lack of cohesion, superiors' rage and remoteness, and fear and fear of fear.
