    creation of the Communist economic system and its social consequences,
    focusing on the political priorities that drove economic policy. We will
    look at the development of the Soviet model in the USSR and its
    extension to Central Europe and China after World War II. We will also
    devote attention to attempts to “reform” the communist model and the
    short- and long-term consequences of reform efforts. [Comparative Government]
