|"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.”
