RE: [Nettime-ro] \\ das kapital - legislating reality

Cel putin la nivel de discurs, in anii'80 comunismul muribund, de data asta
a lui Gorbachev, declara ca rubla sovietica este la fel de tare ca si
dolarul! Ei bine, concret vorbind raportul [fluctuant, uneori] era asta: 1
USD = 96-98 kopeici urss-iste! salariul mediu infatzisa sarariatului
aproximativ 350-400 ruble. Oricum, mai bine decit in Romania
capitalista...a anului 2005!  

Proletari din toate tarile, uniti-va!
