Problemy rozwoju ekonomicznego w myśli labourzystowskiej
MetadataShow full item record
The article contains a presentation of the views of the labourist thought on the economic development problems. The basic source of materials was provided, on one hand, by the post-war official documents of the Labour Party (programmes, declarations, and election manifestos), and on the other hand, by works of two labourist theoreticians and namely of Richard H. S. Crossman and John Strachey. The object of the analysis are widely understood developmental problems concerning both the attitude taken by the labourist thought with respect to development oi so c ialist states, and its own theoretical concepts of development. An integral element of these concepts is the attitude to capitalism and the attitude towards the essence of socialism. A special emphasis is laid on the evolution of attitudes concerning these problems. The author performs an analysis of not only the views on the above problems as contained in the official documents of the Labour Party, and in the works of R. H. S. Crossman and J. Strachey but he a lso makes an attempt at their confrontation. Unlike the majority of previous works dealing with the labourist thought in the Polish literature of the subject the author places an emphasis on the positive presentation of views although he does not avoid a general assessment of these views either.
