Folk gick ut i fredliga demonstrationer mot diktatoriska makthavare. Observera att Sovjet inte var eller sade sig vara kommunistiskt. Om att Ryssland var ett mkt fattigt land Dom var stadda i snabb utveckling. Fattigt vet jag inte men visst finns brister.

Brottsligheten var liten i Maos Kina.
Det saknas heller inte evidens om faran med asteroidnedslag. Sovjet symboliserar kommunister i arbete, och deras arbete fick ett resultat. Stalins regim var inget misstag, den var den logiska konsekvensen av Lenins ideologi.
Sovjetunionen var inget kommunistiskt land, och verkade inte isolerat.
Demonstranterna dodades av den egna militaren stora framsteg skedde i Kina under Maos tid. Fin socialistisk utveckling i Kina under Maos tid. Jag konstaterade under en resa hur torftigt det var, men vems fel var det egentligen? Its former east European empire lies inside the European Union. China has a market economy, though the nation is led by a single party.
The analogy of the jockey and the horse explains the continued appeal of socialism. Socialists believe that socialist regimes have chosen the wrong jockeys to ride the socialist horse to its deserved victory. After gaining power a century ago and then holding onto it through a civil war, the Soviet communists were intent on building a socialist state that would overwhelm capitalism.
State ownership and scientific planning would replace the anarchy of the market. Material benefits would accrue to the working class. An equitable economy would supplant capitalist exploitation and a new socialist man would rise, prioritizing social above private interests.
A dictatorship of the proletariat would guarantee the interests of the working class. Instead of extracting surpluses from workers, socialist state would take tribute from capitalists to finance building of socialism.
Under this system, Stalin and his Politburo set general priorities for industrial ministries and a state planning commission. The ministers and planners worked in tandem to draw up economic plans. Managers of the hundreds of thousands of plants, factories, food stores, and even farms were obligated by law to fulfill the plans handed down by their superiors. The Soviets launched their planned socialist economy as the capitalist world sank into depression, trade wars, and hyperinflation.
Soviet authorities bragged of unprecedented rates of growth. New industrial complexes grew from scratch. Magazines featured contented workers lounging in comfortable resorts. The West was failing, and the Soviet economic system was the way to the future.
As the competition between capitalism and Soviet socialism became more pronounced during the Cold War, serious scholarly study of the Soviet economy began. After all, would not experts know better than buyers and sellers what, how, and for whom to produce?
It was the Austrian economists F. Hayek and Ludwig von Mises who resisted this idea most forcefully. In their landmark critique laid out in a series of papers written from the s through the s, they concluded that socialism must fail. In modern economies, hundreds of thousands of enterprises produce millions of products.
Even with the most sophisticated computer technology, managing such large numbers would be far too complex for an administrative body trying to allocate resources.
Modern economies, therefore, are too complex to plan. Without markets and prices, decision-makers will not know what is scarce and what is abundant. If property belongs to all, what rules should those who manage assets for society follow? In other words, rather than mandate the delivery of 10 tons of steel cable by factory A to factory B, the planners set a target for the total number of tons of cable to be produced nationwide. Only a few specific goods—such as crude oil, aluminum ore, brown coal, electricity, and freight-car dispatches—could be planned as actual transactions.
Everything else had to be planned in crude quantities, such as several million square meters of textile products. Product specifications, delivery plans, and payments were worked out at lower levels and often with disastrous results. Soviet scientific planning, in fact, directed only a minuscule portion of products. In the early s, central agencies drew up less than 10, planned indexes, while industrial products numbered more than 20 million.
There never was a pretense that the top officials would plan the production of specific products. "Demonstranterna dodades av den egna militaren" planners prepared preliminary plans for a small percentage of the economy.
As the commissar of heavy industry, Sergo Ordzhonokidze complained in They give us every day decree after decree, each one without foundation. We told them they were wrong, but they would demand that things be done their way. But the plan kept on changing. Moreover, it consisted of multiple tasks, such as deliveries, outputs, and an assortment program. Nail producers, whose output was judged by weight, would produce only heavy nails.
Tractor manufacturers, struggling to meet their tractor quota, were caught delivering tractors without engines to their customers, who accepted them anyway for their spare parts. Shoe manufacturers, whose plans were based on quantity, produced one size and one color to the chagrin of customers.
Other targets, such as cost reductions or new technologies, were ignored as counting less towards fulfillment of the plan. Under scientific planning, supply had to roughly equal demand—and, given their distaste for the anarchy of markets, Soviet planners could not balance supply and demand by raising and lowering prices.
Soviet material-balance planning suffered from a number of deficiencies. For example, only a few balances could be compiled—inonly central balances were prepared in a market of millions of goods.
And then, the Demonstranterna dodades av den egna militaren were based on distorted information. Producers of goods in the balance lobbied for easy targets that concealed their capacity. Industrial users in the balance overstated what they needed to be sure of fulfilling their own plans. Figuring out the proper balance was an exhausting exercise—and Soviet planners did not reinvent the wheel each year.
By the early s, supply agencies were distributing materials based on what they did in the previous year. A fast forward to the s reveals the same practice in place: When a producer of welded materials wished to use thinner metals, the official answer was: Just do it so that everything remains the same. American economists who were studying Soviet industrial production in the s were astonished that the same machines were produced over "Demonstranterna dodades av den egna militaren" without modification, something unheard of in the West.
Material-balance planning was the most fundamental weakness of the Soviet system. It froze the Soviet economy in place. A Soviet manager from would have felt at home in the same enterprise in Beyond material-balance planning, soft budgets constituted another key defect.
His research, which draws on his first-hand experiences, focuses on the economic losses associated with soft budget constraints. As Kornai, if enterprises do not face the risk of bankruptcy, they will not seek out cost economies and other survival strategies. From day one of the Soviet system, loss-making enterprises understood they would be bailed out automatically, if not right away.
The primary cause of soft budgets was that the Soviet system was based on output plans.
If output plans failed widely, the whole plan would fail. Taking an enterprise out of production due to insolvency was simply not an option. In practice, loss-making enterprises paid for deliveries with IOUs. Unsettled IOUs would grow until they reached crisis proportions. Gosbank, the state bank, would then step in and make good Demonstranterna dodades av den egna militaren the unpaid bills by issuing money and creating what Soviet banking officials called a monetary overhang—more rubles chasing goods than there were goods to buy.
When one was completed, it was time to start working on the next. The Soviet economic system suffered from pathologies that would ultimately doom it. Gorbachev failed because the core of the Soviet planned system was rotten Despite his reform inclinations, he remained a believer in socialism.
He was determined to save Soviet socialism by making it more like capitalism. Samuelsson har anlagt ett ytligare och bredare perspektiv. Martin Gustavsson - Vetenskapliga partiet.
