Summary/Abstract: On the basis of gathered empirical economic data, this study examines more theoretical issues such as the interaction between the Soviet model of industrialization, known from the USSR and that, applied in Czechoslovakia after the end of the Second World War. Czechoslovakia is a very good object to be examined since it offers a comparison between the already industrialized under the Western model Czech lands and Slovakia, which due to lack of serious industrial preconditions, offers study of the Soviet model almost in pure kind. In the course of the theoretical studies the author also dwells on the question why the USSR takes so little from the positive economic experience of Czechoslovakia. The most important aspect of the answer is hidden in the moving mechanisms of the two models: the economic stimuli and the profit, on the one side, and the accomplishment of the ideological aim - building of socialism, on the other side. At the same time the author stresses that namely because of its ideological core, the main goal of the “conception of the iron and the steel” is directed towards the radical change of the society and namely - the rapid establishment of working class that will turn into the main social bulwark of the regime.
