ylw-text.gif The ration book contains a list of items purchased, their quantities and the dates of purchase. People are only allowed a certain number of items, or weight thereof. Children up to the age of seven are guaranteed milk, and families are allowed about 45Kg of meat per month. There are harsh penalties for exceeding government-set allocation, even though the maximums are only enough to last from 2-3 weeks. Supplemental provisions must be obtained through "personal endeavors", or, entrepreneurship.
