Welcome to Economic History of the Soviet Union! In this course, we’ll explore one of the greatest economic experiments of the twentieth century – socialism in the Soviet Union. 

We’ll answer questions such as: 

  • What is socialism? And what does socialist theory depend on? 
  • What were socialists hoping would happen in the Soviet Union – what went wrong, and did anything go right?
  • Does supply and demand exist in a socialist economy? 

You have access to all of the course videos right now, but each section does build on the previous one so I encourage you to start with the first section and work your way through. You can test your knowledge with practice questions along the way and the final exam at the end of the course. If you have questions, post them below each video and I’ll be sure to get back to you quickly!

Have you run across any related materials to this course? Don’t forget to post them on the video pages. Your contributions help drive discussion and learning for the entire MRU community. 

Thanks for joining us, and I’ll see you in class!
