The workers' councils became Tito's primary ideological weapon against the Soviet Union. Even though they did not give workers total control of the factories-power was shared with the Communist party and the local commune-they gave workers a greater voice in the management of their factories than was the case anywhere else in the world. Workers not only helped choose their factory managers but also helped choose and often served on the managing board of their enterprise. Needless to say, the managing board was made up primarily of Communist party members, since they were usually the most activist of the workers.

The Soviet- Yugoslav Split Central to the effort to reestablish Soviet supremacy in the Communist world was a stepped-up campaign to discredit and bring down Tito's government. When Stalin founded the Cominform in September of 1947, he established its headquarters in Belgrade partly in order to intimidate and spy on Tito and undermine his support within the Yugoslav Communist party. Tito was accused of being anti-Soviet because of his failure to accept Moscow directives on industrial and agricultural policies.

As the communes and workers' councils gained more jurisdiction, the central government would presumably wither away. Although it took years to institute the changes, Yugoslavia's impact on the Soviet satellites became damaging to Soviet bloc unity in the 1950s. With Titoism, there were now two roads to socialism.

United States financing helped Yugoslavia through the extremely difficult years (1949 to 1952) of the economic blockade by the Soviet bloc.
