  Comecon - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The military counterpart to the Comecon was the Warsaw Pact.
The Comecon served for four decades as a framework for cooperation among the planned economies of the Soviet Union, its allies in Central and Eastern Europe, and, later, Soviet allies in the Third World.
The descriptive term Comecon applied to all multilateral activities involving members of the organization and was not restricted to the direct functions of Comecon and its organs.

 History of the Comecon - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The precise reasons for Comecon's formation in the aftermath of World War II are quite complex, given the political and economic turmoil of that time.
Comecon members adopted the Comprehensive Program at a time when they were actively developing economic relations with the rest of the world, especially with the industrialized Western economies.
Most Comecon countries ended their 1981-85 five-year plans with decreased extensive economic development, increased expenses for fuel and raw materials, and decreased dependency on the West for both credit and hard currency imports.

 Structure of the Comecon - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Prime ministers usually headed the delegations, which met during the second quarter of each year in a member country's capital (the location of the meeting was determined by a system of rotation based on the Cyrillic alphabet).
The highest executive organ in Comecon, the Executive Committee, was entrusted with elaborating policy recommendations and supervising their implementation between sessions.
The Secretariat's responsibilities included preparation and organization of Comecon sessions and other meetings conducted under the auspices of Comecon; compilation of digests on Comecon activities; conduct of economic and other research for Comecon members; and preparation of recommendations on various issues concerning Comecon operations.

The primary factor in Comecon's formation, however, was Joseph V. Stalin's desire to enforce Soviet domination of the small countries of Eastern Europe and to deter some states that had expressed interest in the Marshall Plan (see Glossary).
In the early 1980s, intraregional trade rose to 60 percent of foreign trade of Comecon countries as a whole; for individual members it ranged from 45 to 50 percent in the case of Hungary, Romania, and the Soviet Union, to 83 percent for Cuba, and to 96 percent for Mongolia.
Comecon was structured in such a way that the more economically developed members provided support for the less developed members in their major economic sectors.

The official hierarchy of Comecon consists of the Session of the Council for Mutual Economic Assistance, the Executive Committee of the Council, the Secretariat of the Council, four council committees, twenty-four standing commissions, six interstate conferences, two scientific institutes, and several associated organizations (see fig.
At the June 1984 Comecon economic summit and at subsequent Council sessions, the policy of equalizing the levels of economic development between Comecon member countries was repeatedly stressed.
Parallel efforts have sought to develop Comecon as a mechanism through which to coordinate the foreign economic policies of the members as well as their actual relations with nonmember countries and such organizations as the EEC and the United Nations.

 COMECON - Old school death metal sweden. Interview.
The first COMECON album "Megatrends in brutality" was probably your most obscure and Death metal influenced, while it had a little apocalyptic side, strange melodies and industrial influences that would be more famous later..
Comecon was at first a side project for Pelle and me, to do the hard music we liked, without the bickering.
The few COMECON photos I saw were quite nice looking: on one hand there was 3 guys looking like some kind of punk/ Death metallers, and there was an apparently very well dressed guy with an Ebm/ industrial look lol.

Under COMECON, the USSR was able to dictate preferential trading arrangements; two ministers of foreign trade (those of Czechoslovakia and Bulgaria) were executed for bargaining too hard with the Soviet Union.
COMECON similarly enables Moscow to influence financial flows and investment among member nations.
By the same token, the demand for an end to Soviet domination in the economic sphere should be paralleled by a call for the immediate termination of the means whereby the Soviet Union continues its domination of the military, internal security, technology acquisition and espionage activities of the nations of Eastern Europe.

 NATO Review - No 5 - October 1990
At the 45th meeting of the COMECON Council in Sofia on 9 and 10 January 1990, the European members of COMECON decided unanimously that the existing system of economic cooperation should be completely abolished.
The dustbin-syndrome threatened to become the hallmark of traditional COMECON trade, whose difficulties were further aggravated by the fact that, with the chronic shortage of foodstuffs and consumer goods for their domestic markets, all the East European COMECON countries began increasingly to shut themselves off economically from one another.
Hungarian and Polish delegations for COMECON to be disbanded, the clear underlying assumption was that any change in the internal economic system could be credible only if it were accompanied by the simultaneous notification of a consistent change in foreign trade policy towards the future European Economic Space (EES) comprising the EC and EFTA.

 WHKMLA : Late Cold War - COMECON
The OIL CRISIS of 1973 hit the COMECON economies hard, as the USSR was the only member nation able to export oil, which it did in exchange for socialist currencies ('soft currencies') and at prices which meant a virtual subvention of their allies.
Yet the amounts exported were limited, the individual socialist governments faced the necessity of earning hard currency wherever possible.
With the Oil Crisis in 1973, the COMECON economy had virtually ceased to develop.
