Collectivism: A False Utopia by William Henry Chamberlin

Status: Almost Complete (v.3)


Fix Notes:

Page 89: Blockquote, bottom of page: purchasing

It would probably be not far from the facts to put the puchasing power of the rouble in 1936 in respect of the most important articles of consumption at one-sixteenth of the 1913 rouble, or, taking into consideration housing rents, travelling, etc., at one-twelfth of the 1913 rouble.

Page 203: Bad scan on a section towards the middle of the page. I have made a reasonable estimate at the missing text:

[...] by comparison, involving far fewer adjustments and sacrifices; yet its solution proved impossible without four years of devastating civil war. Socialism, as I have defined it, is certain to prove, in the beginning at least, a road not to freedom but to dictatorship and counter-dictatorship, to civil war of the fiercest kind.
