Don't do what Gorbachov did.

All of his reforms were well intentionedintentional, but were probably responsible for the collapse of the Soviet Union. I suspect that a leader who was able to implement economic reforms without causing disruption and chaos could have left the Soviet Union a sound and prosperous nation.

China's controlled move to a free market economy was probably inspired in large part by the lessons provided by the failed reforms that lead to the collapse of the soviet unionSoviet Union. Replay that success in the context of the SU in the 80s and I bet you'd get good results. The great thing about speculative fiction is that you get to prevent a disaster by retroactively applying the lessons provided by the disaster itself.
