9. As per your edit:

I didn't bring this up in the OP, because I thought it might detract from the topic at hand, but since you mentioned I don't have a problem with discussing it. I agree with you. I think the Soviet Union had a number of problems, but it was efficient. It turned a semi-feudal state into a superpower in about 30 years. The main problems it faced were famine, which were a problem even under the Tsars and consumer goods. The big problem with consumer goods was that they spent far too much money on their military (doesn't that sound familar?)
