"Question 4: Why are your cities deserted today? Why have you abolished the role of money, the system of monthly wages, and the trade network?
ANSWER (Pol Pot): We had to ask the people to go and live in the countryside in order to solve the food problem. . . Staying in the cities meant starvation. . .  As for the question of money . . . It's up to the people. If the people want to use money again, we will use money again. If they see that it [money] is not necessary, it's up to them.”
    — Pol Pot, Interview with Yugoslav journalists, 4/17/78, J. Contemporary Asia, 8 (3) 1978
 On the lies about Cambodia see, After the Cataclysm (1979) and
            Manufacturing Consent (1988) by, Noam Chomsky."
