Did relations improve between the US and Soviet Union after Mikhail Gorbachev came to power?

Gorbachev wanted to increase relations due to the economy in Russia and its dependency on China, so for the good of Russia he initiated the dissolution of the Soviet Union. Gorbachev ran the Soviet Union with much more openness than the earlier Premiers. Soviet spokesmen began to be viewed as more willing to speak to foreign press, and other nations. While the U.S. and USSR were still engaged in the Cold War it seemed as if there was a thaw with more open communication between the two and a willingness to discuss serious matters such as reducing nuclear weapons. So yes relations did improve after Gorbachev came to power. Though there were some times of worry as a result of the Pandora's Box that he opened, in the end his period of rule heralded the end of the Cold War.

What are some of the changes that Gorbachev made to the soviet economy?

Mikhail Sergeevich Gorbachev, with his economic awakening, and restructuring of the Soviet system "Perestroika" eventually helped to improve the efficiency of the country, along with international trade, which was not readily available before. Gorbachev was quoted as saying that perestroika was the "conference of development of democracy, socialist self-government, encouragement of initiative and creative endeavor, improved order and disciple, more glasnost, criticism and self-criticism in all spheres of our society. It is utmost respect for the individual and consideration for personal dignity." He then could not control Glasnost and perestroika. This led to the end of the Soviet Union and the fall of Communism in Europe. The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics stopped existing on December of 1991.
