Lenin's New Economic Policy!

Saving Russia

Thanks to Lenin's policy, the citizens of Russia have the luxury of openly selling products. Retail stores and industries were able to privately own their business, with the exception of having 20 employees or less. This enables Russia's people to have more freedom, when it comes to business without the interference of the government. When it comes to the hard things such as industry, banking, and mining, it is all handled by the government. Without the New Economic Policy, the Soviet Union, while trying to end famine, would have lead Russia into economic disaster. This temporary retreat from communism can save Russia as we know it.
