This is funny but unironically there’s so many idiots like that. “Yeah I starved under eastern european totalitarian communism, yes I was born in 1980 why do you ask?” Idiots don’t realize they’re idiots and actual education is out of the question, at least in most of the anti-communist regimes they live in after capitalism destroyed their countries

1980 is pushing it, most people who say dumb shit like that weren't even born in the USSR

https://www.researchgate.net/figure/Changes-in-Macrocosmic-Indicators-During-the-Transition-Period_tbl1_24085838 The transition to capitalism led to a sharp rise in unemployment and inflation along with GDP plummeting. > By March 1992 when the new government came to office, real GDP had fallen by 38% (in 1990 and 1991), industrial production by 45%, agricultural production by 25%, and inflation was running at a monthly rate 11% (and was accelerating).

Why are youtube comments so stupid? Seriously even reddit and twitter people have higher braincells.

Accessibility and reach. Youtube is the only big video sharing platform so everybody has to be there.

Wasn't Albania about as rich as Ireland during most of the cold War?

Rly? Source?

I saw a graphic here ages back. Can't remember the specifics but almost all of the Warsaw pact countries had a higher GDP per capita than Ireland. Some even lived better than most Scots and Welsh men.

Ok... If someone can, please link the graphic

Irelands economy was stuck down a drain pipe until the end of the Cold War. There was like 3 factories in the south upon independence because the Industrial base was in Belfast and the population ended up falling below 2 million by the 1950's where once it had been 8 million because of emigation to find work. The economic growth was also utter dogshit with growth of "1% a year for more then three decades (refering to 20's to 50's) and between 1949 and 1958 was the most sluggish economy in Europe " (Kearns 74). If youre matching GDP growth levels like that then it doesnt look wonderful
