  The New Economic Policy
The essence of the New Economic Policy which he adopted soon afterwards was acceptance of a compromise with the peasantry.
The Bolshevik theoretician Riazanov labeled the NEP "the peasant Brest," that is to say, a temporary truce was concluded with the peasant adversary, as with the German Empire at Brest-Litovsk.
Nevertheless the economic motive was not the crucial one; as Lenin said, the question of the new tax was ''pre-eminently a political question, since it is essentially a question of the relation of the working class to the peasantry''.

  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.
To explain the NEP, Lenin had said "We are not civilized enough for socialism", referring to the fact that Russia was still a primarily agrarian nation, with a very small urban population and a weak industrial base, and thus it did not meet the economic criteria necessary for full socialism.
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
Although the NEP was hailed in some quarters as having reduced the socioeconomic disparity between the Chinese minority and Malay majority, others accused it of having reduced non-Malays to the status of second-class citizens.
The NEP's success — or lack of it — is a subject of heated debate; although the NEP targeted a 30% share of the economy for the Bumiputra (indigenous people, mostly the Malays), such a figure has never been reached according to official government statistics.
The abstract policies and goals of the NEP were implemented by the Second, Third, Fourth and Fifth Malaysia Plans.

 ::New Economic Policy::
The New Economic Policy (NEP) was introduced to replace the failed policy of War Communism.
In the first stages of NEP, theoretical restrictions were placed on a firm’s freedom to buy and sell but by 1922, these limits were dropped and profit-making became the main aim of those in industry.
The NEP also needed a stable currency and this was difficult to achieve after such huge economic dislocation in such a short space of time.

New Economic Policy (NEP), official economic reconstruction program of the USSR from 1921 to 1928.
It replaced the economic policies of "war Communism" (1918–21), an emergency program established by Lenin during the civil war.
However, the NEP policies proved inadequate for the expansionist aims of Stalin and were reversed (1928) by the first Five-Year Plan.

 The New Economic Policy
Summary: The New Economic Policy began in 1921 as a means of helping the recovery of the war-devasted economy of the Soviet Union: it created a mixed economy, combining state control of large-scale industry with a limited measure of private enterprise.
NEP thus resulted in a mixed monetary economy, in which state industry traded with individual peasant agriculture through a market which was partly in state hands, partly in private hands.
On this view, judgement about the long-term economic viability of NEP depends on a political assessment of how far it was essential for the Soviet Union to establish powerful capital goods’ and armaments’ industries in the space of a few years.

NEP succeeded in creating an economic recovery after the devastating effects on the Russian economy of the First World War the Russian revolution and the Russian civil war.
The NEP was generally believed to be intended as an interim measure, and proved highly unpopular with Marxist purists in the Bolshevik party because of its strongly capitalistic elements.
On the other hand, Lenin has been quoted as saying: "NEP is for serious (real) and for a long time." Sometimes this has been used to claim that if only Lenin were to stay alive longer, NEP would have continued, the destructive collectivization would have been averted, and all would have been well.

Malaysia’s New Economic Policy (NEP) was first announced in 1970 as the principal policy response to the post-election race riots of May 1969, which also resulted in a significant regime change.
Although the new policies have put far greater emphasis on achieving rapid growth, industrialization and structural change, there is the widespread perception that public policy is still dominated by the NEP’s interethnic economic policies, especially wealth redistribution or “restructuring” targets.
These policies are believed to be especially important in terms of influencing public policies affecting corporate wealth ownership as well as other areas, notably education and employment opportunities.

 Lenin The New Economic Policy
This new system however tended to produce less of a marketable surplus than was required to provide for the needs of the urban population.
The early stages of the development of this policy contemplated how the peasantry could be encouraged to produce more food for the towns and, in the later stages of planning, was extended towards encouraging economic exchange between town and country and to encouraging industrial production.
A recovery of economic activity in both rural and urban areas and between country and town was thus facilitated.

 The New Economic Policy
The New Economic Policy (NEP), introduced by Lenin at the Tenth Party Congress in March 1921, represented a major departure from the party's previous approach to running the country.
The linchpin of NEP was the introduction of a tax-in-kind, set at levels considerably below those of previous requisition quotas, which permitted peasants to dispose of their food surpluses on the open market.
Referring to NEP as a retreat of the state to the "commanding heights of the economy" (large-scale industry, banking, foreign commerce), Lenin insisted that it had to be pursued "seriously and for a long time."

Sanghi said for sustained seven to eight per cent economic growth, the government's promise of massive public investments in infrastructure, rural development, agriculture and industry, boost to FDI and selective privatisation among other things was crucial.
"It is laudable that the economic agenda of the government explicitly mentions the need for and focuses on the key role played by capital markets in boosting the rate of investment in the economy," he said.
