Although the history and implications of the Cold War between the US and the USSR are well documented, it is still not quite clear why it ended up as it did, with the collapse of the Soviet Bloc and a clear win for the US.
Using a methodology presented in the recent post, “What makes our world and the economy tick?”, we will examine the US vs. USSR rivalry from a different perspective, by focusing on the progress made in the following key areas: Information flow, Transportation, Telecommunications, and Freedom of speech. This will help us identify the key competitive advantages of the two countries that-to a large extent-determined the outcome of this war.
