Slovenian Monetary and Commercial Relations with Other Yugoslav Republics (1945–1950)
To date the exchange of goods between the republics has remained unexplored due to the lack of statistical information (which the Yugoslav federal authorities started collecting as late as in 1966). On the basis of available archive and other documentary materials the author of the following article sheds light on the systemic characteristics of budgetary financing and loans, ways of planned market management, and forms of illegal trading. He analyses the role of Slovenia in the centralist system of food and goods supply. Slovenia as the main consumer received the required raw materials and food from the other republics in order to maintain its production and ensure regular food and goods supply for its people, and as the main producer it had to transfer the surplus industrial and agricultural production to the other republics. Like the other republics Slovenia also defended its economic interests, closing the borders in order to deter buyers from the other republics.
