    Yes, indeed, Hino motors is a U.S. owned motor manufacturer and Toyota uses the motors. This does not mean that the design of the motors Hino makes was necessarily designed by Hino though .. it was likely designed by Toyota and Hino just manufactures them. See link below:

    Also, I don't understand why you would make a post saying simply ... you would be wrong ... without a source, unless you were just guessing ... I'm sure you will scramble for some kind of source now though, lol!

    So what you are saying is the next time someone mentions a so called monopoly that the Sherman Act ended I should just say it isn't relevant anymore. Cool!

    Did you read my post? Do you know anything about relevance when making comparisons in research? If you noticed, the simple fact that the Sherman Act occurred was not what made prior data irrelevant, please read my post again and if you do not understand, I try to explain it in more detail and simplicity.

    Yes, I think I did read it and understood it.

    Ok, then you will agree that applying theories using relevant data from that time period to today's without modification, would not be good practice, right?

    How can you even ask such a question.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Economy...ublic_of_China
    Overview
    In the modern era, China's influence in the world economy was minimal until the late 1980s. At that time, economic reforms initiated after 1978 began to generate significant and steady growth in investment, consumption and standards of living. China now participates extensively in the world market and private sector companies play a major role in the economy. Since 1978 hundreds of millions have been lifted out of poverty: According to China's official statistics, the poverty rate fell from 53% in 1981[10] to 2.5% in 2005. However, in 2006, 10.8% of people still lived on less than $1 a day (purchasing power parity-adjusted).[11] The infant mortality rate fell by 39.5% between 1990 and 2005,[12] and maternal mortality by 41.1%.[13] Access to telephones during the period rose more than 94-fold, to 57.1%.[14]

    In the 1949 revolution, China's economic system was officially made into a communist system. Since the wide-ranging reforms of the 1980s and afterwards, many scholars assert that China can be defined as one of the leading examples of state capitalism today.[15][16]

    If you're serious about the subject, I don't think you'd have such misconceptions about private markets vs non-private markets.

    Nothing wrong with lower taxes in the U.S. We have an enormous amount of spending and debt that needs to be cut. If we have a war that threatens our survival, sure, I can envision higher taxes as a necessity.
