As the subtitle hints, Professor Bautina of Moscow University is strong on the advantages of the international division of labor for Comecon countries. The level of discussion leaves some issues a bit general but there is an interesting discussion of prices and the need for flexibility. Jacobsen covers all the aspects of East-West economic relations with copious references to the literature.
