However, when this problem was formulated in a language comprehensible to socialist public opinion or adequate to the socialist paradigm, the emphasis was on the state's additional investment and social requirements, on arguments that were said to reveal a shortage of state resources, and on a transformation (perestroika) formula following from this shortage. But, let us emphasize, this was a transformation geared to decentralize state administration, and not the socioeconomic system as a whole. "

A.
