Transcript tabling the unquestioned and strict responsibility of the administrative and technical staff for their work, the more successfully shall we grapple with the execution of our production programme. The more our communist managers grasp the essential principles of the processes of production, the more confidently can they approach the task of instituting one-man management and really bringing about both strict responsibility of the managers and high productive discipline of the workers, without which we cannot "overtake and outstrip" the capitalist countries. Nearly two years ago, after the exposure of the Shakhty sabotage, the Party declared war against those methods of economic management which are characteristic of the so-called "commissars of a poorer type" in industry. In this struggle we have as yet achieved very little. The problem faces us still of mastering the essential principles of the processes of production and acquiring their technique. This necessitates the intensification of the technical and economic training of communist managers, and, still more, work on a large scale to train new personnel who could independent!}' master the whole organisation of production, including its technique. In passing, it should be noted that the necessity for training experts for economic and cultural work on a large scale led the Party to take a decision to reorganise the whole system of universities, technical colleges and technical schools. These educational institutions are being handed over to the appropriate People's Commissariats and economic organisations. I should mention also such new steps as the transformation of individual factories into factory technical schools. The Supreme Economic Council has fixed upon three factories with which to make this change in the near future. Thus there are being created new methods of training personnel which have never previously existed in practice, and at the same time we are feeling* for new paths to bring about the rapprochement of school and production. As an illustration of the new problems facing communists in the U.S.S.R. I will quote an example from the work of our learned institutions. Until quite recently, at the Institute of Red Professors, a certain menshevik, Rubin, enjoyed a tremendous influence in questions of political economy. He succeeded in directing the activities of part of our students in the I.R.P. along a false path, by diverting their attention from militant questions of the theory of soviet economy and the theory of world imperialism to scholastic and abstract discussions. For some time a considerable body of our students in training for research work were in the grip of this "Rubinism," which was menshevik in its political tendency, and "idealistic" in its philosophical basis. Owing to the fact that the criticism of Rubin was at first undertaken only 4«
