Here is a 1933 article that reported on the "stunning successes" of the Soviet Union's first (of many) "Five Year Plans". These assorted attempts to develop economic vibrancy were dreamed-up by the various butchers of the Kremlin's central planning committee; each one of these plans all had one thing in common that was never lost on the Russian people: they always involved the construction of new factories, but never the construction of additional housing. When it all came crashing down in the early Nineties, a former insider remarked that a foible was stitched into the hem of each and every Soviet economic scheme that guaranteed failure - and that was the creed of the Old Bolsheviks - that money itself was "bad".

The Chinese don't seem to have this problem.
