Abstract:
The supply of manufactured goods and processed agricultural products to the Soviet peasantry during the Second Five-Year Plan (1933-37) has been a subject of great interest to scholars of collectivisation for over 50 years, but in-depth research has been hampered by a lack of reliable data on product flows, price levels and trends, and expenditure. This dissertation seeks to partially fill this gap by examining the Soviet peasantry's real expenditure on manufactured goods and processed agricultural products in retail socialised trade in 1934-37, using 1928 as a base year. It concentrates on the socialised sector because this was the main channel of supply of the major manufactured goods and processed agricultural products to the peasantry at this time, and expenditure is examined rather than physical product flows because reliable budget data on the former is available and the resulting calculation of price indices to deflate money expenditure levels also fills a gap in knowledge.
