Historical Background
After WWI Russia was in very poor shape and it's economy was not doing so well.
Everyone held King Czar Nicholas II responsible for this poverty
So, in 1917 Vladimir I. Lenin lead the Bolshevik Revolution which created the socialist state; Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) in 1922
Rent being a small fraction of one's income
By: Beth Parcell

Dictorial Form
The Soviet Union government follows collectivication: a system where the government took over private farms and had peasants work on them
the power belongs to working people of the town and country
Property Ownership
Just as in typical socialism, the Soviet Union abolished private property, so one can't rent or exchange land
but, you COULD use small land plots to grow food and as a way of income and food supply for the state.
The end of the Soviet Union
The collapse of the
Soviet Union
was in 1991
because of new technology many people lost their jobs
They also lost the Afghan War
because of this they were in poverty
they were also receiving too many imports and not able to make exports
so, their economy collapsed and the Soviet Union was no more
The goal of the Revolution was to:
Redistribute land to peasants
Transfer control of factories and industries from capitalists to workers
Transfer government power to soviets
Along with
In the 1920s the government controlled EVERYTHING
including heavy industries and banking
this was too corrupted so they switched to state control
which meant that
dwelling houses
tractor stations
forests and
were all state property and belonged to ALL people
they lived by a state control 5-year plan:
-rapid industrialization
-production of capital goods
-more heavy machines
-more oil and steel
