Welcome to the final stage of Chinese Perestroika. Wonder if Bo Xilai (and Zhou Yongkang) would've expedited or foil it.. Depends on which side of the elite they've played. "Private competition" doesn't work, never has. Capitalism is extensive (as opposed to intensive) system. Unless China is ready to get out and capture some new markets...

They should start with adapting the laws of minimum wage requirement, so people don't have to work for a pay that allows them to buy enough food to live and if lucky some place to live. Then they can be lucky that they can work or live in a safe building under somewhat decent circumstances.

At least like this the overall comsumer rate would go up. Leading to a healthier economy. Nature could use a hand (kind a whole lot of people could be put on that, jobs for the unemployed and homeless?). The finances? Do what the rest of the world does print it. If everyone is broke at least you got infrastructure.

WOW! Another 1.3 billion people that western banksters can cheat out of their hard earned cash.


Essentially, yes. It's too bad that "private companies" doesn't really mean the free market anymore when it comes to international trade.
