Rada Ministrów PRL w nowym systemie zarządzania gospodarką narodową
MetadataShow full item record
In the European socialist countries a model solution has been developed in which management of the national economy is mainly under the state administration, primarily the Cabinet. Thus on the central government tier several organs have been instituted, within the government or attached to it, which manage the national economy on behalf of the Cabinet. In People’s Poland that function was assigned to a numerous group of deputy premiers or else to the Presidium of the Cabinet, or to the Economic Committee of the Cabinet and the Planning Committee, and in the years 1981-1982 there was an Economic Committee of the Cabinet. In the assumptions of the economic reform a radical change of the existing system of subjects of management has been admitted towards a socialisation of management, restriction and change of the role of administration in management. Also the directions of changes in the position of the Cabinet in managing the national economy have been laid out. In the years 1981-1985 several changes realising the assumptions of the economic reform have been made. First they referred to the economic subjects and representative organs, and only indirectly to the administration and in particular the Cabinet. Essentially the position of the Cabinet in management has been changed. It covers all functions of management, including formulation of a programme of economic policy, law making, working up plans, supervision of execution and control. Most changes have been made through legislation. Partly the changes have been accepted by the Cabinet alone. However, the organisation of Cabinet’s work has been changed accordingly. The accepted changes have not a complete character. The author suggests a complete formulation of the intended reforms. It requires passing a bill on the Cabinet, a bill on legislation, a bill on social consultation and scientific advising, and a bill on the system of economic control.
