It wrecked China's industries and education system. It tried to have a number of people do a number of different tasks at the local level instead of specialize in just one thing. As a result it brought great poverty and starvation.

answer: Widespread Famine

Mao's Great Leap Forward was a massive failure. The idea of Karl Marx that people could do one job one day and a different job the next proved crazy. The concept than each farmer could have a small foundry in his own back yard and work that along with his other work failed miserably. People were not allowed to specialize.

Mao could not realize that he made a mistake. He had to compound it.

Next Mao became convinced that the intelligentsia had caused the failure of the Great Leap Forward. He called out the Red Guards to keep the stop the intelligentsia from wrecking the Great Leap Forward. They only made things worse. They turned China into total chaos.

When their glorious leader Chairman Mao died, some suspected he had been on the wrong track.

Are we seeing a pattern yet?
