Alla P. Gakuba

When attending civil engineering university in her native city Odessa, on the Black Sea, the Soviet Union, Alla lived an ordinary life. She was a shy, timid, and unsure of herself young woman, but a serious student.

Fascinated with life, bubbled with infinite youth energy, and curious about the world, she had read hundreds classic books written by world famous classical writers. She saw numerous movies, the majority of them international, and went to the theater many times to hear the most popular operas, saw ballet performances, not to mention visits to the drama theatre, the circuses, and philharmonic classical music performances, all from a young age. She was a dreamer...In her dreams she was anything she wanted to be. She imitated her heroes, adopted their manner, language, attitudes, and became as sophisticated as they were.

Then, one cold, unassuming November evening, fate suddenly interfered and changed her destiny. Fate propelled her to live on different continents, ambushed her with life-threatening events and monumental problems. She survived, became stoic, and make many contributions.

Alla worked in 4 countries: the Soviet Union, Rwanda, Tanzania, and the United States; in 3 languages: Russian, French, and English; and under 2 radical systems: socialism and capitalism.

Alla P. Gakuba, received her BSCE from Odessa Civil Engineering University in the Soviet Union; she earned her master's degree at Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore; and she received her PhD from George Washington University, Washington, DC.

The Greatest Catastrophe of the 20th Century. Or, How the Soviet Union Disintegrated in 1991.: SHORT STORY # 31. Nonfiction seri by Alla P. Gakuba

The Soviet Union disintegration in 1991 was a curse and not a blessing for the USA and the Western Europe. Their economies eventually spiraled down due to rampant laws of a fee market economy, categorized by "expansion in all directions without any restrictions."

The USA is sinking from $20 trillion debts, and $17 trillion personal debts; middle class disappeared; 1 in 2 Americans live in poverty or under poverty line; and jobs are shipped to China, India, and another countries where the labor is cheap and plenty. European countries teeter along as zombie states that have no oil and no raw resources...
