The economical programme pioneered by Mikhail Gorbachev in 1986, including social reform in the name of glasnost, allowing more economical and political freedoms to the Soviet populace. As populary mentioned, this programme was not the cause of the collapse of the already weakened Soviet Union but merely a catalyst for that inevitable event.
Perestroika was a step in the right direction, allowing the populace of the USSR to formulate their own devices for the future, thereby collapsing the USSR atop themselves, willingly and rightfully. Hail Mikhail Gorbachev!
