The years 1939–41 entailed dramatic changes for the economy of the Soviet-occupied Polish territories. Moscow radically transformed the socioeconomic system along the lines of the Soviet example. These changes were incomplete by the time of the German invasion in June 1941, but economic life was revolutionized. The prewar structures of private and public ownership had been destroyed. The main branches of the economy, save for agriculture, had been completely reorganized. And the integration of the occupied Polish territories into the Soviet economic system had made much headway.
