Finally, a notable new area of study, cultural and educational policy and its social consequences has been opened up. Much of it concerns the early and mid-twenties alone but some of the main works also look at the 'cultural revolution' of 1928-31, which finally silenced the old intelligentsia and replaced it with a new, more narrowly educated white-collar intelligentsia.

The effects of these policies on the historical profession in the Soviet Union have been carefully scrutinised by John Barber in Soviet Historians in Crisis (Macmillan, 1981) and George Enteen in The Soviet Scholar-Bureaucrat: . Pokrovskii and the Society of Marxist Historians (Penn. State University Press, 1979).

Clearly, for this system to work to the benefit of Private Industry, the dictator of the Government always had to be a businessman, who would make all his decisions on behalf of business. This new Business-Government system will create enormous profits for several reasons:
