Transcript It is true that the increase of production by 31 per cent, as compared with last year, which had been laid down for the current year in the branches of industry controlled by the Supreme Economic Council, was not carried out during the first quarter. During the first three months of the current year (October- December) we have an increase of only 26 per cent, as compared with the same period last year. But this very figure of an increase of 26 per cent, shows how futile is the rejoicing in the bourgeois press about an economic crisis in the U.S.S.R. Let me remind you also that the Five Years' Plan provided for an increase of industrial output during the current year of of 20 per cent. The programme of production (31 per cent.) for this year is half as large again as the programme for last year (22 per cent.). Lastly, we should compare industrial output during the first quarter of this year with the same quarter last year. Such a comparison shows us that the increase of industrial output during the first quarter of 1928-29 was 19 per cent., while this year we have a further increase of 26 per cent. In respect of the productivity of labour, we have the following figures : last year 10 per cent, in the first quarter, this year a further increase of 18 per cent. So far as costs of production are concerned, instead of an increase of 2 per cent, in the first quarter of 1928-29, we have the opposite in 1929-30, namely a decrease of 4 per cent. These facts have long been published in our press, but are hushed up by the bourgeois press, which is howling about the collapse of the bolshevik plans for industry. In spite of all this, our Party is sounding the alarm, and has proclaimed the struggle for the industrial and financial plan to be the most important task before all Party, trade union, Young Communist and economic organisations, because in the first quarter of the year the increase achieved was only 26 per cent., and the level of 31 per cent, which had been fixed was not attained. During the last few days there have been published the results of the first four months of the new economic year (October- January). These show that we now have an increase of industrial output by 27 per cent. While this represents an improvement on the first three months, it means that the industrial and financial plan for the year is still not being carried out. The front has not been straightened out. The press continues to print daily communiques exposing the defects of the economic, industrial and party organisations. Side by side with the defects are indicated also the successes achieved by individual factories and districts. The papers have introduced a "black list" for workers and organisations which are not carrying out their obligations under the plan. At the same time the names of the leaders of organisations notable for their achievements are being printed in "red
