Economic Update: Rise and Fall of the USSR


The Real News Network broadcast the show Economic Update: Rise and Fall of the USSR.

This week on Economic Update, Professor Wolff goes beyond the simplistic, sterile Cold War debates of demonizers vs celebrants of the USSR as he delivers an in depth analysis of the USSR’s strengths, weaknesses, successes and failures from its revolutionary beginnings in 1917 to its implosion in 1989. The first episode of a special 2-part series where Professor Wolff gives the same in-depth analysis for the People’s Republic of China in the second part.


A very interesting history lesson. I don’t attest the the truth of everything Prof. Wolff said. How could I? I wasn’t there. However, it is all worth considering along with all the other things you think you know, but cannot attest to either. I anxiously await the promised analysis of China. Of course, I have my own opinions, but I don’t think they are too far off what Wolff will say.
