Abstract : After World War II Marxist economists found themselves confronted by the important problem of studying the laws of the origin and evolution of the world socialist system. What is the world socialist system? What are its characteristics? The world socialist system means that there exist a number of countries where the socialist revolution has won, where government by the working-people was instituted, with the workers class led by the Marxist-Leninist party at its head, where there is collective ownership of the basic means of production, and where socialist and communist society is being progressively established through the development of a large industry, gradual socialist transformation of agriculture, and improvement of the standard of living of the people. The world socialist system, moreover, means broad economic cooperation between the socialist countries and rational division of work among them. The socialist countries-copperate on the basis of full equality, common advantages, and mutual comradely assistance. Their cooperation plays a leading role in strengthening the political and economic interdependence of each socialist country and in strengthening the socialist community as a whole. The close unity of the socialist Countries is conditioned by the fact that they started together on the common road to socialism; that their socioeconomic system and state power are based on the same class foundation and that they need mutual aid and support.
