Is there a source for Kondratieff being executed immediately? I thought it was historically quite vague and that he may have died in a forced labour camp... Sjeraj 11:26, 2 March 2006 (UTC)

Are there any sources for this?[edit]

I feel like writing [citation needed] every sentence here. Are there any references. I know the man existed and did some scientific work, but you can't really tell that from this. Smallbones 20:09, 4 February 2007 (UTC)

Is there an official biography for this man?[edit]

Stuff about Keynesianism[edit]

With regard to this [1], I think it's essentially the very clumsy wording that's bugging me. It would also improve the text if the background - that originally Kondratiev was overshadowed by Keynes - was provided.Volunteer Marek 14:03, 22 January 2013 (UTC)

Well how would you better phrase the "stuff"? CarolMooreDC 15:22, 22 January 2013 (UTC)
In some other way than "In the 1970s as Keynesian economics proved it could not address serious contemporary economic problems and this lead to the rediscovery of Kondratiev's work, proved a flawed approach, Kondratiev's work was rediscovered and became more fashionable than in the 1930s. ".
The original text, when it was uncited stated "In the 1970s as Keynesian economics proved a flawed approach, Kondratiev's work was rediscovered and became more fashionable than in the 1930s." That's at least grammatical. But the problem is that while some shortcomings in the Keynesian approach were highlighted in the 1970's, it's a little to much to say it "proved a flawed approach". Keynesian economics is still essentially THE mainstream economic framework.Volunteer Marek 20:19, 22 January 2013 (UTC)

Prof. Carle C. Zimmerman's account of Kondratiev's singling out and arrest[edit]

I've added a quote and citation from a book by the late Harvard sociologist Carle C. Zimmerman, who documented that an Ag professor at the University of Minnesota reported Kondratiev to Soviet authorities after a 1927 visit to his friend Prof. Pitirim Sorokin, a fellow ethnic Komi, then at Minnesota.Ajschorschiii (talk) 03:30, 28 October 2013 (UTC)
