The first Five Year Plan extended from 1928 to 1932. Those were the years of our heavy purchases of foreign machinery and materials for the gigantic drive to industrialize Russia. One of the major consequences of that drive was an acute shortage of foreign exchange in Moscow.
In the course of those same years the globe was circled by a trail of spurious $roo Federal Reserve bank-notes of the United States. They first trickled and later flowed into the United States Treasury from Shanghai and San Francisco, from Houston and New York, from Montreal and Havana, from Warsaw, Geneva, Bucharest, Berlin, Vienna, Sofia, Belgrade.
It was Stalin who thus put into circulation throughout the world about ten million dollars in bogus American currency.
The fact is interesting, not only intrinsically, but because it reveals the primitiveness of this Georgian's mind-his ignorance of modern world conditions, and the readiness with which in a crisis he turns to the expedients of common crime. Stalin first rose to prominence in the Bolshevik Party as an organizer of "expropriations"-that is, bank robberies designed to replenish the party treasury. Boris Souvarine in his recent Life of Stalin describes such an expropriation at Tiflis, organized and directed, although not participated in, by Stalin, in which eight bombs were
