Formerly one of the basic assumptions of planned economy was the demand that all important investments of a national economy be evaluated and directly controlled by a national center. However, experience showed that this system hinders technological development. One indicator of the degree to which the old system has been deserted is how good the new conditions are for innovation in the production process and the product profile. The author compares practices in three countries, in order to determine to what degree the background of enterprise investment and innovation has changed.
