    I disagree. So long as there are strong interests that justify such collaboration--and there are--it will continue regardless of whether France has a conservative or socialist government or the U.S. had a Republican or Democratic government.

    You are absolutely correct that it Will continue. I'm simply saying that it SHOULDN'T continue.

    I had to think about that one for a while, but you're right. The Sinos were a lot easier to compete with when they actually were socialists making their 'great leaps forward" from time to time.

    Anybody taking bets on this?
    How do you define successful, and how do you define socialist economy?

    So they want a 75% tax rate on the top earners in the country? Is that correct? If so, that would incentivize people to succeed financially how? Or, is that just their way of saying that they hate financially successful people?

    High income tax on upper-class doesn't mean they pay it. There are still loads of write-offs and also it tends to reroute their finances away from pocketing their business' stock options and keeping it in investments and makes them spend more in business development.
