Example text

Parks and canals and grain storehouses were built or improved, paper money was brought into circulation, and a fast and efficient postal system was introduced — a Mongolian Pony Express. The size of the Mongol empire, and its sophisticated communications network, facilitated trade between east and west, and with it came cultural and scientific exchanges. Mongols and Chinese began to visit Europe, and Marco Polo and other western emissaries began to travel to Asia. But the longer Khubilai and his descendants stayed in China, the less control they had over — and the less interest they had in — the other parts of their vast empire.

First there was the loosening of control, fatigue on the part of the authorities after all those iron-grip decades; the images from Berlin and Prague and Bucharest, followed by the first tentative demonstrations in Sukhbaatar Square; the government’s decision that perhaps elections were not such a bad idea, that perhaps there was a place in the government for political opponents and a place in the economy for private enterprise; an Ulaanbaatar Spring in 1990, the winds of change. Then the Soviet Union collapsed and with it the supply of money that had amounted to 30 percent of the country’s GDP.

What did the government do? It sold off chunks of its hard-currency reserves, it asked for more foreign aid, and it tried to generate money from taxes. This last strategy has not been a success. Mongolians do not like paying taxes — who does? — and the novice democratic government lacked the authority, and the resources, to force them to do it. In mid-1997, in an arguably sensible move to bolster domestic cashmere producers, the government imposed a tax on exports of raw cashmere. This tax led to one of the most striking statistics I have ever seen: reported cashmere exports fell by more than 98 percent, from more than $16 million in 1997 to a little over $300,000 in 1998.
