Stalin's Five Year Plan
Transcript of Stalin's Five Year Plan
Stalin's First Five-Year Plan
The first five-year plan lasted between 1928-1932
The first Five-Year plan concentrated on the development of iron , steel, machine-tools, electric power, and transport. Stalin demanded 110% increase in coal, a 200% increase in iron production, and a 335% increase in electric production
Stalin justified his claims that if rapid industrialization did not take place the Soviet Union would not be able to defend itself against an invasion from capitalist countries in the west.
There was also some inequality that went into play here. Stalin's argue was that it was necessary to pay higher wages to certain workers in order to encourage increased output.
Stalin also created collectivization which led to the starvation or death of kulkaks. Approximately one million kulkaks Stalin forced to deport. Agriculture production was damaged but industrial production did increase causing the First Five-Year Plan to not be a complete fail.
kulkaks-wealthy independent farmers who gained their status from the Stolypin reform in 1906.
The Second Five-Year Plan
The second Five-Year Plan lasted from 1933-1937
During this Second Five-Year Plan , Stalin expanded his goals of his previous plan and placed an emphasis on heavy industry. The plan aimed to make an advance in the Soviet Union's communication . Such as railways, which improve in both speed and reliability .
This plan was not as successful as the first Five-Year Plan. This plan had the introduction of childcare, which then motivated mothers to work and contribute to the plans success. This Second Five- Year Plan made for a lower standard in living because the focus shifted towards military goods and heavy industry . The lower availability and quality of consumer goods hurt the economy
The Third Five-Year Plan
The Third Five-Year Plan lasted only three years because of World War Two. As because this war was sought to come this plan was focused on the production of weapons and other war type materials
Stalin in an attempt to keep his promise to make the Soviet Union the leading industrial power by 1960 implemented additional Five -Year plans. By 1952 industrial levels were almost double then 1941 levels. Stalin's plans helped to turn the Soviet Union from an untrained society to an industrial economy.
Allegory- (1) a representation of an abstract or spiritual meaning through concrete or material forms; figurative treatment of one subject under the guise of another.
(2)- a symbolic narrative
When Snowball wanted to build the windmill and turn the farm towards the industrial side, and Napoleon claimed they wouldn't have enough food to make it through the process. Then Napoleon ends up gaining enough support to chase Snowball out of "Animal Farm" . Napoleon then claims the windmill idea as his own and begins the building process, during this the land doesn't get taken care of like it should have been and the animals lose a large portion of there food supply . Which represents when Stalin began collectivization and the kulkaks starve because they don't have enough food for themselves. The windmill represents the improvements in industrialization, and the windmill had three two-year plans just like the Five-Year Plans that Stalin made.
"Animal Farm" is a great allegory to the Russian Revolution.
"Animal Farms" effctiveness as an allegory?
Great, "Animal Farm" represents the Russian Revolution almost perfectly.
They both have year around plans.
They both have land and food collectivization.
And they both have industrialization improvements
