We will defiently need a link for that here then so anyone can easily find their way there
Probably not, the Union is at just below three trillion, with the US at just above five. I don't see a crash wiping out two trillion dollars worth of economic activity from the US, not unless it is on the scale of (or probably worse) than the Great Depression. I do think we have closed the gap since the USSR is far more insulated from the world economy, but I don't think we have overtaken for first.Have we taken over the GDP ranking yet due to the crash
Thank you for the thread so far. It's been a fun ride.Dear comrades, I've made a decision, that the next update (February - July 1988) will be my last update on this thread,
Looking forward to it!Dear comrades, I've spoken with @Altlov, and the good news is that he will pick the game up with the spinoff starting after my last update.
B. Eduard Shevardadze would be good in maintaining the big tent coalition that has successfully managed to keep the economy steady. Plus he would help showcase leadership remains for all the peoples of the Union.1. Who should be chosen as the new Second General Secretary of the CPSU?
A. It should be a priority. Additionally, we should look to use our Buran shuttle which is in development to ferry the modules of the space station. This can cut down on costs and give use to the shuttle.2. Should the USSR begin a construction of Mir-2 space station?
I agree with @Rinasoir's point. I additionally do believe that in public, however, we should support the PLO in their bid for a state, to maintain support within the Arab world. But we should do nothing more.3. Please write down how should the USSR react to the ongoing unrest in Palestine?
I think @Rinasoir's, @ruffino's and @seraphim74's proposals should be combined into one, which can serve as our reaction.4. Please write down how should the Soviet government react to the Battle of Cuito Cuanavale?
There isn't a pre-order option right? I have all the other games, except for the China and Collapse.As sequel to the Crisis in the Kremlin has just been announced comrades!

I still am not sure about Buran being the best way. I have a feeling it is more: "The Americans have a big shuttle, so we should have one too". IMO Buran is too big. American space shuttles were designed so they would be able to catch a defective satelite in orbit and bring it safely down for repairs. Do we plan similar actions?A. It should be a priority. Additionally, we should look to use our Buran shuttle which is in development to ferry the modules of the space station. This can cut down on costs and give use to the shuttle.
