The primary purpose of this Comment is to examine the problems facing Americans who want to set up joint ventures in the Soviet Union. Before examining the challenges, the rationale for the decision to permit joint ventures and the objectives that the Soviets hope to achieve will be addressed. This Comment will then discuss the major provisions of the laws and the major problems these laws have caused for American investors. Finally, the major systemic and political problems confronting joint ventures will be examined.
