Drawing on his experience as an economist in positions with the Academy of Sciences and Moscow University, the author reviews the development of mathematical economics in the U.S.S.R., the disputes among economic schools of thought, and their relation to questions of political power and leadership. Both text and notes contain interesting sidelights on the economic establishment.
