    The historical practice of the USSR convincingly demonstrates the advantages of socialism over capitalism in the most important sphere of economic life: employment. Unlike capitalist society, in which chronic mass unemployment is a cruel reality, the planned economy of the Soviet Union more than a halfcentury ago once and for all time put an end to the unemployment it inherited from capitalism, provided full employment for the able-bodied population of a multinational country, gave all peoples of the USSR an opportunity for creative activity, and guaranteed true freedom to working people and the improvement of their well-being and cultural level.
