Could you please recommend at least one good (basic) article or book on the economic conditions of the Soviet Union from a historical or empirical point of view?
Although I’m aware of sources that deal with socialism from a theoretical perspective, I’m not so sure of good references outside those.
I’m writing a short paper for an English composition class hoping to convince others on the importance of understanding basic economics. I would like to cite such an article/book and quote it to give a concrete example of what socialism can do.
Thank you so much.
