Tin Pe, Brigadier

   A close confidant of General Ne Win and veteran of the Fourth Burma Rifles, he served in the cabinet during the Caretaker Government period (1958-1960) and was member of the Revolutionary Council when it was established in March 1962. A leading theorist of the "Burmese Road to Socialism," his influence over economic policy following the resignation of the pragmatic Brigadier Aung Gyi from the Council in 1963 was paramount. But Tin Pe's doctrinaire, Eastern European-type socialist ideas caused economic disaster, and he was obliged to resign from the Revolutionary Council in 1968. Thereafter, economic policy was largely formulated by the civilian economist U Ba Nyein.
