A complication in any major political economic shift away from a Laissez Faire free market system is trying to get a world level recognition of the need and world level coordinated transition so that there is no opportunity for any one country to offer multinational corporations a reduced tax rate spurring a race to the bottom which breaks the deal and allows the corporations to continue abusing labor and pillaging natural resources from the cheapest markets that are desperate and struggling to get enough money just to feed their populations. Which is the situation we have now.
Don't confuse economic models with statecraft.Stalin didn't do anything that wasn't in Machiavelli's 'The Prince.'
