El experimento económico soviético a examen: la mirada de los viajeros españoles, 1917-1936

Luis Perdices Blas, José Luis Ramos Gorostiza


After the Revolution of 1917 Russia went from being seen as an exotic far country to be considered a laboratory of socioeconomic change. In Spain a great interest was aroused by what the Soviet economic experiment could mean in terms of a new modernizing pattern starting from a decadent and backward reality. For this reason, Spanish travelers of very different sign visited Russia with an open spirit, seeking to extract useful lessons. The contribution of this work is to analyze the economic image of the country that sketched said travelers. They were able to capture the vicissitudes and hesitations that occurred in the development of the Soviet experiment until the arrival of the planning option in 1928, identifying with remarkable success the main problems that arose in this process.
