    I didn't know that! I still think you would be a hit with all the kids if you stuck a real Mickey decal on them, though!

    LOL, yep.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    State Capitalism - China:

    In this system, governments use various kinds of state-owned companies to manage the exploitation of resources that they consider the state's crown jewels and to create and maintain large numbers of jobs. They use select privately owned companies to dominate certain economic sectors. They use so-called sovereign wealth funds to invest their extra cash in ways that maximize the state's profits. In all three cases, the state is using markets to create wealth that can be directed as political officials see fit. And in all three cases, the ultimate motive is not economic (maximizing growth) but political (maximizing the state's power and the leadership's chances of survival). This is a form of capitalism but one in which the state acts as the dominant economic player and uses markets primarily for political gain.

    Seriously?

    Uh, to illustrate that China is still a command economy and has merely transformed to the model formulated by Mussolini.

    Private ownership does not equate directly to a free market. China is anything but free, the state heavily manipulates the production of goods, generally in conjunction with foreign corporations.

    Thanks for the article.

    But the proper term for what China has is not "capitalism," rather it is "fascism." Privately owned industry controlled by central planning. It is a command economy.
