I  wasnt aware of this. How did the role of the unchallenged banks not  create a serious tension with the early stages of the revolution when  the soviets were the most active? Im assuming the orignial changes were  far more political in nature rather than economic, but I still cant  imagine a serious tension not develop from a country that was in a  position of having serious scarce resources.
