Making money: Khmer Rouge economic strategy takes shape

Cambodia's revolutionary faction Khmer Rouge has started laying out its economic plan with the creation of its own currency.It is also trying to establish autonomy in its present areas of control by bribing its people with lands to till. These developments come as a surprise toobservers as, ironically, the Khmer Rouge is well-remembered for its murderous regime and the abolition of its own currency. This could only mean that politically and economically, the Khmer Rouge is trying to assert its legitimate presence as a state within the Cambodian state by having its own currency and head of state.
