This booklet analyses the contribution of Eugen (Jen?) Varga (1879-1964) on Marxist-Leninist financial concept in addition to the effect he exercised on Stalin’s international coverage and during the Comintern at the foreign communist circulate. in the course of the Hungarian Councils’ Republic of 1919 Varga used to be a type of mainly chargeable for remodeling the economic system into one tremendous commercial and agrarian company lower than kingdom authority. After the autumn of the progressive regime that 12 months, Varga joined the Hungarian Communist get together, quickly and then, he could develop into one of many Comintern’s prime economists, predicting the inevitable obstacle of the capitalist method.
Varga grew to become the Soviet Union’s professional propagandist. As an fiscal professional he may recommend the Soviet govt on German reparation funds and, not like Stalin, believed that the capitalist kingdom will be in a position to plan post-war financial restoration, which contradicted Stalin’s international coverage approach and resulted in his shame. hence via the start of the chilly battle in 1947, Varga was once discredited, yet allowed to maintain a minor educational place. After Stalin’s loss of life in 1953 he reappeared as a well-respected economist whose political impact had still waned.
In this learn Mommen unearths how Stalin’s view on foreign capitalism and inter-imperialist rivalries was once profoundly motivated by means of debates within the Comintern and via Varga’s inspiration of the final situation of capitalism. notwithstanding Stalin liked Varga’s cleverness, he by no means depended on him while making his strategic overseas coverage judgements. This used to be basically proven in August 1939 with Stalin’s pact with Hitler, and in 1947, together with his refusal to take part in Marshall’s ecu restoration Plan.
This publication will be of curiosity to a large choice of scholars and researchers, together with these focusing on the background of financial concept, Soviet stories, diplomacy, and ecu and chilly struggle history.
