Related to State Planning Committee: Gosplan
A committee that designed the economic plans for the Soviet Union. Initially planning for five years in advance, it later tried to plan for 10 to 15 years ahead. While Gosplan successfully industrialized the Soviet Union in only a few years, its plans were generally quite inefficient. It was created in 1921 and lasted until the end of the Soviet Union.
