Judy Shelton, author of The Coming Soviet Crash, analyzed the

condition of the Soviet economy. Due to its emphasis on military

spending, the Soviets have neglected all other areas of their

economic development and thus face a crisis. This crisis is so

grave, Shelton said, that the collapse of the Soviet system is

imminent. She also talked about the differences between the U.S. and

Soviet economies and the issue of whether the West should give

economic and technological aid to the U.S.S.R. close
