The colonial economic structures and imbalances are maintained: retreat or stagnation of the food productions whereas the population growth remains high (3% per annum); increasing importation of the food goods and the intermediate goods intended for industries; weak competitiveness of national industries; instability of the courses of the raw materials; narrowness of the interior markets and insufficiency of the interior saving; heaviness of the public expenditure; overvaluation of the currencies in particular in the zone CFA; deficit of the foreign trade in manufactured goods; maladjustment of the industrial projects; food insecurity.

- disastrous Harvests of the years 1963, 1965, 1969, 1972 and 1975, due to the climatic conditions but also to the inefficiency of the agricultural sector collectivized and the rural migration of young people towards the cities.

- Ievseï Libermann and other Soviet economists propose, starting from 1965, to somewhat soften planning centralized in order to increase the profitability of the investments and to stimulate the productivity. Without to question the collective ownership of the means of production, these economists recommend to grant to the companies a relative autonomy compared to the Plan and to restore the standard of the profit. Kossyguine then Brejnev, grateful that the methods of management are late on production capacities, joins soon with these ideas. A pilot project is launched in July 1965 in which four hundred factories of clothing and shoes take part; breaking with the established use, those base their production on the orders received rather than on the quotas fixed by the government. The experiment is extended soon to industry, agriculture, the haulage companies, the building and the communications. A suitable legislation is adopted by the Supreme Soviet as of October: to each company is allotted a working asset and a wage budget, but is with the local direction to decide use of the capital, payment of the wages (per hour or piece-rates) and granting of premiums. In 1969, a third of the national production is ensured by companies functioning under the Libermann system. During Years 1970, the approach of Libermann will be gradually abandoned.
