Mass Production, Economic Growth and Social Justice: Historical Lessons for Russia

Ilja Viktorov ()

Abstract: This paper examines the impact of mass production on economic development in the United States and Sweden between the 1930s and early 1970s. It suggests that the historical experience in both countries can be used to illustrate a possible pathway for promoting progressive development of the Russian economy. The article discusses the conditions under which mass production can promote economic growth combined with social justice in post-Soviet Russia
