China doesnt even purport to socialism in name and doesnt have anything approaching a welfare state or the tax levels we associate with socialism. The question would be why has Scandinavia been so successful
[QUOTE=cr726;2885587]Capital market without using true capitalism.
China succeeds because they sh!t all over their citizens and do not care what happens to them in the factories.
We buy all of their cheap poisonous crap.[/QUOTE]
This is true! Do you know that they execute more of their citizens each year than any country in the world? (second is Iran, btw...) or that they execute people for non-violent crimes?? B-bound, you're wrong here....they've had success at being barbaric...I wonder why we didnt't see ANY protesters during the Olympics this past summer? As Clemenza said in the first Godfather after killing Paulie..."won't see him no more".......
[QUOTE=BrooklynBound;2886036]Yes, they should limit pollution but no one can deny their economic standard of living increases, which allows more people to escape poverty. The system they had before was not preferable.[/QUOTE]
How do u defend China? Their people are enslaved....
China is currently pumping out goods for the world because they were able to build factories and get millions of cheap laborers to work in them. To do this China needed a lot of highly trained people. The main reason China (and India, too) has so many college graduates (engineers, computer scientists etc) is because of the socialist government they both had in the 1950's to the 1990's. They did not care about 'market forces' they only cared to educate millions of Chinese so that China would one day rule the world.
