 From "The Revolution Betrayed":

'The Soviet Union is a contradictory society halfway between capitalism 
and socialism, in which: (a) the productive forces are still far from 
adequate to give the state property a socialist character'

productive forces--- in contrast, eg, to an emphasis upon the relations 
of production.
