or what the essential difference is between an Obama Stimulus and a Stalin stimulus?
Since the Soviet Union never practiced communism nor has any nation, the five year plans probably came closest to the USSR's state capitalism economy. The reason the five year plans never stimulated the economy is because any rewards of a stimulus plan went to the owners of the industry, the government. There was no attempt by the USSR to share any profits with the common folk.
What would liberals have to do with it?
Ask a farmer
eddie, if you had another six brains, you'd have half a dozen.
keep up the good work
Actually Stalins industrilization of the Soviet Union was impressive, agriculturally they were failures, he killed 7 million during the collectivation of state farms. The Soviets did not have a Great Depression, they like Nazi Germany, Fascists Italy, and the Japanese were expanding their industries and increasing their strength, while capitalist nations struggled with economic depression.
As far as the the Soviets making it into space and giving the USA a scare over mass production during the nuclear arms race. they were fierce competetors.
The economic collapse of the USSR was due to totalanism and abuse. The economics of communism did pay women equally as men.. But they were starved of capital by the might of the dollar and military power exerted when collectively the social fabric of the communistic Soviet bloc nations threw off the shackles of oppression.This was not the first time revolt and revolution occurred under Soviet occupation, this last time, the mighty Soviet military did not attack the rebellion, they left the countries to their peoples will.
For that matter...what is the difference between the Stalin Stimulus and the Reagan Stimulus?
The five year plans, as I remember, were to build the Soviet Union's heavy industry. Must have stood them in good stead when Hitler invaded.
