Results of Still Another Fifty-Year Experiment in Political Economy
By Robert Higgs
This article appeared in the Summer 2007 issue of The Independent Review


Abstract

Before the Soviet Union began its occupation of Estonia in 1940, that Baltic state and neighboring Finland were as similar as any two countries in modern Europe. Over the ensuing five decades, however, their economic and social differences grew so large that no informed person could honestly dispute the pernicious effect that communist rule had on occupied Estonia.
