On the reasons of crisis of the butter manufacturing co-operative system in Siberia, in the conditions of the New Economic Policy (NEP).

Nikolaev, A.A.
Institute of History SD RAS, Novosibirsk
Pages: 20-24


In this publication, the reasons of the crisis of the Siberian butter manufacturing in the conditions of the New Economic Policy are revealed. The main of these reasons were caused by the State economic policy, the absence of investments and the worn-out material and technical basis, the administration in co-operative building and the loss at peasantry of the material interest in handing over milk to milky plants. The slump in demand for the butter manufacturing and the appearance of mould in export lots were indicative of the great crisis of this branch. However, in the conditions of NEP, the butter manufacturing had not been re-established, and the crisis of the branch was perceived by the governing body as incapacity of the sale and supply forms of co-operation.
