Economic Regulators

Instead of issuing compulsory plan targets, the government administratively adjusted economic regulators to induce enterprises and cooperatives to fulfill the regime's macroeconomic plan. The key economic regulators were prices, taxes, enterprise-income regulations, exchange rates, and direct administrative intervention. The government did not apply the regulators uniformly throughout the economy but changed them according to need.
