Definition: Nomenklatura System

Nomenklatura System - "soviet bureaucratic system in which the Communist Party controlled the state by using the power to recommend and approve managers in administration and enterprises, and make appointments and promotions to government positions. During the post-Soviet period, many economists argue that the nomenklatura still occupy the top positions in Russian society (Millar 1994:5–6)." - source: Economic Development 4th Edition by E.
