The state of the economy satisfies no one. Its two central defects, its built-in defects, so to speak—a producers monopoly in conditions of universal shortages and enterprises' lack of interest in scientific and technical progress—are doubtless clear to everyone. But it is equally clear that no one is prepared to claim that he has a workable prescription for ridding us of those defects in practice rather than in theory. We all have more questions than answers, and it will take a lot more argument and discussion before we can grope our way to those sorely needed answers.
