Mau encouraged all farmers to make small farms called cooperatives. They could now afford to raie more animals and were getting more money.
after all the pesants all joined they could keep some grain and the rest went to the state for very low prices.
people complained that nomatter how much you grew they had to give it to the state.
People were making steel that was useless.
By 1979 the party noticed that things were going badly wrong.
In july 1978 the party met to discuss new ways to do things, new plans.
Mau had demanded too much grain from the peasants, this created a famine that lasted 3 years, an estimated 30,000,000 people. No one ever blamed mau for the famine so that they wouldn't be executed.
