The communists certainly appear to have the beer bottle situation sorted from the point of efficiency.
The Wests drink industry is dominated by marketing and product image, hence the need for differently shaped and coloured bottles. Widespread distribution makes returnable bottles unviable because the cost of collection and cleaning is greater than the cost of new bottles.
Another problem with returnable bottles is the risk that the bottle is contaiminated or flawed.
