  New Economic Policy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The New Economic Policy (NEP; in Russian Новая экономическая политика - Novaya Ekonomicheskaiya Politika or НЭП) was officially decided in the course of the 10th Congress of the Russian Communist Party.
It replaced the policy of "War Communism," mainly because War Communism was failing, and decreased all sectors of the economy to below the pre-WWI output.
The NEP was generally believed to be intended as an interim measure, and proved highly unpopular with the strong Marxists in the Bolshevik party because of its compromise with some capitalistic elements.

 Malaysian New Economic Policy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Malaysian New Economic Policy (NEP or DEB for Dasar Ekonomi Baru in Malay) was an ambitious, though controversial, socio-economic restructuring affirmative action program launched by the Malaysian government in 1971 under then Prime Minister Tun Abdul Razak.
Although the policy ended in 1990, Malaysians often refer to it in the present tense, as much of the tangible economic benefits it offers the Bumiputra have never been completely ended.
The abstract policies and goals of the NEP were implemented by the Second, Third, Fourth and Fifth Malaysia Plans.

Economic historicism in Schumpeter is essentially the cause and effect of the extensive relationship between enterpreneurship and technological change.
The absence of an epistemological shift and the consequential inability to unify economic knowledge between the a priori or theoretical domains of primal relations, and the a posteriori or the positivistic domains including institutions and empirical facts, remain the central problem of economic history.
Thus a partitioning of economic history by means of various world-systems is a pluralistic approach either to endorse or to explain the positivistic case of methodological individualism gaining its high ground under neo-liberalism and capitalism.
