Transcript spective we have the Tunguz Basin, occupying a huge territory, which may not only double our coal reserves but increase them tenfold. Geological surveying has not yet been applied to the whole globe. There are entire continents which have hardly been surveyed, e. g., Africa, South America. It is not at all unlikely that the 7,398 billion tons may turn out to be 73,980 billion tons. Secondly, it was apparently assumed as a fact by Ramzin that in this "best of all possible worlds" everything was going to remain in the bourgeois state of chaos with its geometric progression of growing recklessness in the exploitation of natural wealth. We are convinced that the early advent of a Communist order of society with its principle of planned economy and rigid co-ordination of requirements and utilisation will put an end to this chaotic management. Moreover, under the Communist system the human element in production will blossom forth in its full vigour, leading to the discovery of natural resources that were not dreamed of by the bourgeois scientists. We can now see the background of this pseudo-scientific approach to the question at hand, particularly so in regard to Ramzin's estimate of the oil reserves. He illustrates the date for the exhaustion of the oil reserves by the following table: Annual growth of pre-war output Corresponding date of exhaustion Date of exhaustion of deposits: If rate of growth of output is Date of exhaustion If rate of growth of output is Date of exhaustion World 8%> 22 yrs. 4.5°/o 29 yrs. 0 57 yrs. U:S.A. 8.5% 7 yrs. 8 yrs. 10 yrs. U.S.S.R. 6.6%> 64 yrs. 74 yrs. 563 yrs. Hence he draws his deduction: the U.S.S.R. must do its utmost to save its oil deposits, which constitute one of the largest items of its natural wealth. 14
