Evsei Liberman in 1967

Evsei Grigorievich Liberman (Russian: Евсей Григорьевич Либерман, pronounced [jɪfˈsʲej ɡrʲɪˈɡorʲjɪvʲɪtɕ lʲɪbʲɪrˈman]; 2 October 1897, Slavuta, Russian empire – 11 November 1981, Kharkiv) was a Soviet economist who lived in Kharkiv, Ukraine.

Вorn in Slavuta in a wealthy Jewish family. Graduate of Kiev University, Faculty of Law, 1920, and Kharkiv Institute of Engineering and Economics, Machine-Building Faculty, 1933. He taught at the Kharkov Institute of Engineering and Economics, the Kharkiv V.I. Lenin Polytechnic Institute, and the University of Kharkiv.

He proposed new methods of economic planning based on the principles of new democratic centralism. His dissertation took form in "Plan, benefit and prisms" published in Pravda (1962). This became a basis for the Soviet reforms of 1965.

His most notable works were "Structure of the balance of an industrial company" (1948), "Means to raise the profitability of the socialist companies" (1956), "Analysis of the use of resources" (1963), "Plan and benefits for the Soviet economy" (1965) and "Planning of the socialism" (1967).

Reforms inspired by Liberman unsuccessfully attempted to revitalize the Soviet economy during the 1960s. Liberman's reform proposals were also implemented in East Germany.

Liberman's wife, Regina Horowitz, pianist and pedagogue, was a sister of the famed pianist Vladimir Horowitz. His great-granddaughter, Génia, is also a virtuoso concert pianist.
