The soviet system was possible for a short time because the state did not have to pay market wages for labor. Of course both corruption and black markets form in both american and soviet models. However, whether soviet or american nothing other than rule of law and universal standing can stop the accumulation of rents in the state an its dependents whether private or public. We always get it wrong: markets are good, serfdom is a good, and armies(servitude) is a good, since series markets, mixed markets, and servitude solve the problems of innovation and adaptation, market limitations, and non-market activity. And the only way to govern them is the competing markets of opportunity and dispute: the markets for the KIND of organization, versus the courts under the natural law of reciprocity REGARDLESS of organization.
