Gregory Grossman

Gregory Grossman (died August 14, 2014[1]) was late professor emeritus at UC Berkeley, an authority on the economy of the Soviet Union.[2] He is credited with the introduction of the terms "second economy" and "command economy".[1]

He received his undergraduate degree in economics from Berkeley in 1942 and his Ph.D. in economics from Harvard University in 1952. He spent his entire career, 1952-1993, at Berkeley.[2]

The term "command economy" was introduced in his seminal 1963 article Notes for a Theory of the Command Economy. The term "second economy" was introduced in his another article, The Second Economy of the USSR (1977).[2]
