Old stuff but good example of a situation where centuries of lack of free enterprise has squashed people's ability to fix problems.

I think it's more appropriate to say that centuries of the lack of free enterprise has squashed people's desire to fix problems. After all, why go through the effort and take the risk if there is no reward.

The USSR is the perfect example of Atlas Shrugging, en masse.

I think there was an old russian communist expression that went something like "they pretend to pay us and we pretend to work," or words to that effect.
