    Well, I think that a couple tens of millions of people getting killed, a complete inability to pay for their state run economy, repression almost unparrelled in human histroy, and long queue lines are pretty good reasons why the USSR sucked

    A state-run economy can not only never meet the needs of the people, but it also has to repress the people if they want to keep control since the people cannot get what they want under such a system.

    Market power will inevitably be so extensive in a capitalist economy that the orthodox firm will be afflicted by dispersed knowledge problems that a consistent Hayekian would object to.

    Then they'd fail or have to downsize barring government favoritism. Even large firms don't have to have even a tiny fraction of the information that a govenrment has have to successfully plan an economy.

    I don't say it is great, but it is relatively great it would seem and serves as an example that so much can be achieved with so little.

    Instead of hearing and reading the usual sick and hateful drivel, it would be refreshing to read the truth.
    The Repubs have no power to stop anything.

    Why don't the Demos just do it? If they patterned it on the Cuba model I'm sure the good citizens of the USA would love it.

    So much achieved with so little?

    "In the 1950s, Cuba's economic development was on the top of Latin America and advanced even by European standards." - Wikipedia.

    So what happened?

    I personally think he shames the socialist movement, with his sanctions against gay people, and those with dissentin opinions on the correct course Cuba should be taking politically. His behaviour is terrible, and I don't feel it's right to excuse it just because he claims to follow the same basic philosophy as I do.

    I don't think so; market power necessarily obstructs such developments.
