Summary
The Soviet Union was built on 20th-century magic called 'the planned economy', which was going to gush forth an abundance of good things that capitalism could never match. And just for a little while, in the late 1950s, the magic seemed to be working. This book is about that moment in history, and how it came, and how it went away
Summary
Presents an analysis of the ideology behind the USSR's 20th-century "planned economy," focusing on the brief period in the 1950s when the Soviet Union, under the leadership of Khrushchev, believed it was securing a rich communist future that would outperform capitalist nations, in a text with fictional selections
