Aksu, Kazakhstan
On the surface, the Kazakh town of Aksu looks like a Communist stereotype. Its metals factory is the world's biggest and for generations it has provided residents with employment, healthcare, education and leisure. But there's a crucial difference. The Eurasian Resources Group factory is controlled by three billionaires and though the Kazakh government also has a stake it's a far cry from the Communist model of ownership by the proletariat. These days one in five of Aksu's 50,000 residents works at the factory and it is a model for the country's state-sponsored capitalism under which tycoons are responsible for the welfare of "mono towns" that depend on their business.
