In their economic policy, they Chinese Communists show no improvem&nt over the Kuomintang. There are fairly widespread instances of graft and corruption among Communist officials at Shthchiachuang. During the early period following the Communist occupation, business was good, but it is now completely bogged down, with the accompanying inflation.

From the standpoint of liberal, non-Communist Chinese, the ommun st program as outlined above shows the futility of attempting to influence the Communists to accept democratic and liberal elements in a coalition govern- ment for all China.
