Documentation (sort of) on the USSR/Sweden Link

On a whim, I contacted the person Mr Legg offered as a reference for the allegation that Soviet Communism was in actuality a set of 7 private trusts; here is the pertinent part of the reply I received:

From: (Lee Markland) Date: Sun, Sep 6, 1998, 5:13am To: Subject: Re: Russian Communism = Swedish 7 Corp. Slavers?
This is all I have on hand.
Peter Drucker visited the Soviet Union and came back and wrote an article for Fortnightly Magazine in 1922. In it he said that the Soviet Union was in reality seven trusts, organized along economic lines (lumber, mining, etc). I don't have all of my original footnotes to my researches and I scanned in my manuscript, sans two pages one of which alas is the actual publication date of the Fortnightly Article, but
it is 1922.

There was more, but it did not provide anything further on the point in question.

Sorry to take up the bandwidth, but the allegation was *so* outlandish to many of us that I thought even such a skimpy reference might be of some interest.
