I hope he and you won't mind if I quote Lew's (Lew at assessment of the discussion of the USSR on this list, from Marxism International:

"This parallels a similar argument going on in lbo-talk, where the Left- Keynesian defenders of the former USSR defend it on the non-Marxian grounds of "technical efficiency", or the provision of "free" medical care (as if many capitalist countries did not have it). Nothing is said about what the workers may have wanted, probably for the very good reason that there was no way of finding out what they actually wanted." -- Jim heartfield
