Positive Impacts

Posted: March 8, 2011 in Response Required

Comment here to list and explain at least two positive impacts of Stalin’s economic policies on Russia.

“Thank you, Dear Comrade Stalin, for our Happy Childhood!”

  1. Group 2 (Jesslyn, Mengdi, Ansel and Jeremy) says:

    He changed the living conditions of Russia.
    This increased the production and availability of more goods. There is also free education, subsidised health care, extensive leisure facilities such as cinemas, public parks and sports fields.

    Stalin created a new system for farming.
    He grouped small farms into larger units called ‘collective farms’, whereby small farms in a village were joined together into one big farm, owned and worked by all.

  2. Maple, Qin wen, Shen ee, Yin xin, Wee Leong says:

    He made our lifes better by introducing the three 5 years plan to make our country stronger. It increased our countries’ resources such as coal, oil and our daily necessities. It also help to make our country stronger by building more weapons in the last five year plan. Without it we wouldn’t have won Germany in WW2.

  3. Clarisse, Steffi, Wilfred, See Gwang says:

    – The USSR became strong enough to help defeat Germany during World War 2 and after the war was one of the most powerful nations in the world

    – He was able to industrialize a rural country in a short amount of time and he held off the Nazi onslaught during World War II

    – Succeeded in turning the USSR into a major industrial power over a short period of time

    – The methods used were harsh (i.e.: abolition of U. relief) although in addition to a high degree of Gov. control, there were incentives.

    – Living standards declined at first and then improved slowly.

    It met with some successes because:

    There was enthusiasm on the part of the work force (probably as a result of propaganda)

    Most of the required labor force was unskilled labor (which was in large supply)

    Of the complete control of the Gov. and of its allocation of resources to progress in designed areas.

  5. Zhan Wei, Jingwen, Samantha, Claudia says:

    I feel that Stalin has made the Russians life more comfortable during his rule.
    Stalin built factories and transport networks. Despite hardships, life conditions did improve for many. Before the revolution, over 90% of the population was illiterate. By the mid-1930’s, nearly everyone could read at a very basic level. Abstractly Stalin was successful as the army grew in power, and the industry grew. However, the costs imposed on the population for these improvements was enormous (purges, massacres, etc.)

  6. Julius & group says:

    Stalin managed to make Russia into one of the world’s greatest powers and had helped improve the economy greatly, making Russia have a better chance of fighting the Germans in World War 2.

    It shows stalin and his warmth for children. He made the childrens’ lives better.

  8. The Awesomes says:

    He gave the Russians education to make them more knowledgable such that they will be able to do jobs in the future..

    He also increase the production of goods and increase Russia’s economy

  9. Gerldine.LynetteYu heng,Shing e :) says:

    Positive: Under stalin’s state-run programme of rapid industrialisation. Factories were built, transport networks developed and workers encouraged, even forced, to work harder. Stalin intended to turn the economy around and make the USSR competitive with capitalist countries.

    All of us adored Stalin . During his lifetime he was glorified in newspapers and films, cities and streets were named after him, and statues of him were put up around the USSR. We seen him as the man who turned an undeveloped and divided nation into an industrial super-power.
