        GULAG: A History is a narrative account of the origins and development of the Soviet concentration camps, from Lenin to Gorbachev. Based on archives, interviews, new research and recently published memoirs, the book explains the role that the camps played in the Soviet political and economic system. The Soviet Union was socialist, but other forms of Marxian socialism are possible. (6) This claim can be sustained only by spelling out in much more detail than hitherto both the sorts of economic mechanisms and the forms of political constitution which socialists consider both desirable and feasible. This we try to do in the book.

      Few details 1. It was public service - everything. Practically everyone was a salaried employee, even plumbers and waiters. 2. Soviet propaganda was praising USSR for distributing most of the wealth in non-monetary form. It was the access to that. After the war, the Soviet economy recovered, Sputnik was launched and nuclear parity with the US maintained. Yet, it failed to deliver growth and innovation — proving that competitive markets.

      How Planned was the Soviet Economy As Marxists claim that capitalism is 'anarchic, planless, inefficient and wastes human and natural resources', what with the modern advances made by Russia in such a short space of time, one would assume that the Soviet economy between and was meticulously planned and controlled. The Soviet economic system has been the subject of such bitter controversy that we must try to look at it today as calmly as we can if we want to get a fairly accurate picture. Russia is not, and has not been in the past quarter century, the economic and social utopia pictured by some pro-Soviet writers in the United States.
