This study deals with the process of central economic planning, or economic planning by governments. It aims at a threefold treatment, which may be summarized as follows: (a) to describe the process of central planning, considered as one of the service industries of a modern economy, (b) to analyze its impact on the general economic process, (c) to indicate, as far as possible, the optimal extent and techniques of central planning. This means that, under (a), central economic planning will be made the object of traditional economic analysis. It will be described and analyzed like any other element of the economic process: its product and factors will be defined, its possible methods of production set out, as well as the possibilities to increase its efficiency in the narrower sense.
