In the east have the Russians closed all banks except for savings banks and cooperative institutes.
The money overhang was highly reduced, but a new round of money creation has hit the population even harder. In the western part were the bank holdings preserved, but with the loss of value of the state debt were the banks hopelessly indebted.
The command economy was preserved. The public budgets were stabilized with tax increases and a stop in military spending. However, the occupying powers did not dare to end the price controls and create an economic shock. For three years, the population had to suffer hunger and austerity.

The new currency was not backed by anything, but the amount in circulation was limited to 10 billion in notes and coins later extended to 10 billion only in banknotes; in to 11 and in to 12 billion. Larger sums also required a clearance certificate from the tax office, to check for incomes out of the black market.
All payments should be converted in a ratio All liabilities of the state, railway and the post office were freed from the change, effectively releasing the state from its debt.
