What i wonder is why should someone go through the trouble to get a doctor only to earn nothing at the end. Do you mean it only comes from a minority that was NOT discriminated there?


Well, in communist countries education tends to be very cheap or free and can be of excellent quality, the problem is that there is no place for this people to work.


Hey! NOT MY QUOTE........ Fix this.

Don't steal my quotes! Tongue

And yes, i know. Education should be free everywhere ideally. But even if it is. You have to invest a lot of work and time and mostly you don't have much money on the way. Maybe you even have to work while studying.

So it is quite troublesome. I guess only idealistic persons would go through all that only to earn practically nothing at the end.

Actually that wasn't true. There were lots of highly skilled ans R&D jobs... just most people haven't heard too much about that as many of these companies were working on "sensitive" projects, or they simply did basic research instead of the more visible applied research. Actually applied research was the week point. Most scientists looked down on applied research as they seen it inferior to the basic research, something for engineers and sales people instead of something for "true scientists". So communist countries they spent lots of resources and time on researching stuff, without enjoying the results (except if that was something for the military).

Interesting. Are prices for cosmetic surgery very cheap too?

What i wonder is why should someone go through the trouble to get a doctor only to earn nothing at the end. Do you mean it only comes from a minority that was NOT discriminated there?

Surgeries in the former Soviet-bloc nations only cost around one-tenth of doing the same in the United States. Georgia, Ukraine, Belarus.etc offer quality medical care, at affordable costs. Russia is a little bit expensive, but the quality is good.

There is a good demand for medical seats in Georgian and Belorussian universities, as being a doctor carries a lot of prestige in the society.

And regarding discrimination, whatever the Soviets would like to claim, the former USSR was a deeply xenophobic society. People with Asiatic facial features (such as Azeris and Uzbeks, composing one-sixth of the population) were discriminated in education, military.etc. According to researchers, the only reason why Armenia could beat Azerbaijan during the 1993 Nagorno-Karabakh war was due to the fact that the Azeris (an Asiatic Muslim people) were not allowed in to the combat battalions of the Soviet Army. Even now, the Russian Army has fixed maximum intake quotas for the Muslim groups. Around 10% of the young people in Russia are Muslim. But only around 2% of the soldiers are Muslims.

It was a joke, just in case you didn't notice. Smiley

Georgia, Ukraine, Belarus... i will keep that names in my mind. Though i think ukraine is not the safest place nowadays. Might be there are safe places but generally i would fear that safe places turn to unsafe places suddenly when iam there. Tongue

Interesting to watch this evolve,figured there would be issues but did not expect so many from within. Sure did not take long to start eating itself.


I was shocked to see how fast that experiment collapsed. Indeed.




I appreciate that someone kept a pulse on the topic and came back with an update all to often these stories get left abandoned and no one comes back to see what happened in the meanwhile.

As for the reason for this failure its a worker ant analogy simply put a percentage of people are lazy while the rest do the work the classic saying where its 90% of the work is done by 10% of the people, with income equality the incentive to perform from the worker ants who did the best disappeared and without that motivation they left of course the lazy ants didn't care or want to step up as much to fill the gap because of no salary motivations hence this problem.

Alas society is still based on a profit motive in one way or another justified or not.

Its hard to know the exact truth maybe the business is having hard time due to other reasons.  Doesn't really prove much there are examples of people living in communes where everyone is equal and it works.

Doesn't really prove much there are examples of people living in communes where everyone is equal and it works.

In certain cases, it works. An example is the Kibbutz system of Israel. Everyone are equal in these agricultural villages, and the salaries are the same. But the Kibbutz system is a success, because there is no need for non-agricultural skills there. The same system wont work in the Information Technology or the manufacturing sectors.

why did the high skilled workers leave? they didnt got less salary right?
i mean the people that left will get the same salary somewhere else right?

greed and jealousy.

we need the singularity asap.
(of course only if it isnt going to kill us)

All incentive goes out the door when the minimum is 70k. The lazy workers will get paid the same as the hard-working ones. There is no room to expand and move forward.

Incentives to produce are hugely important. In sports (for example) when young stars get their first huge contract, they frequently find there "skills" on the field are not nearly as sharp,
