The influence of the Russian Communist Party changed over time, going from high influence at the start of the period after World War II, to the Party being in opposition from 1991. There was a slow decline in influence during the 1960s and 70s, which became a rapid decline in the 1980s. Overall, the role of individuals was the most significant factor, however, war was also an important factor due to it causing individuals to increase or decrease influence of the Russian Communist Party. In the 1990s Yeltsin inadvertently increased the Communist Party’s influence. In 1992 he tried to use shock therapy, the rapid privatization of state enterprises, to improve the economy.

When it comes to education, a vast majority of Generation X has attended high school and only some went to college (going to college was not as encouraged as it is today).
A long period economic expansion, however, followed the downturn of 1981-1982. As companies continued to downsize their workforces, shifter production overseas, and took advantage of new technologies such as satellite communications, they became more profitable. At the same token, the rate of inflation, a mere 13.5 percent at the beginning of 1981, declined significantly to 3.5 percent in 1988, mainly because a portion of expanded oil production that was responsible for decreasing prices succeeded the shortages of the 1970s (Foner
