Well done, Ilargi. Another ongoing testimony to the age old premise that central planning doesn’t work.January 10, 2019 at 7:56 am #44774VietnamVetParticipant
This is an excellent article. Part of the problem is that China wants to keep this quiet and is by nature autocratic. But, also, western financiers don’t want us to know how badly they sold out the West to personally get richer. China’s economy is now larger than the rest of Asia combined which includes Japan, South Korea and Taiwan. China has built 16,000 operational miles of high-speed rail. The USA nothing. China consumer economy is larger than America’s. China is doing something right. General Secretary Xi says China is the only sovereign nation left in the world. Western leaders are incompetent. Donald Trump, Theresa May and Emmanuel Macron are pushing chaos. Angel Merkel is fading away after crippling the EU. This is happening for the simple reason that the global economy and its institutions have overridden western nation states; cutting taxes, regulations and laws. Promoting profitable never-ending wars.January 10, 2019 at 2:13 pm #44785EdMartinezParticipant
It could have been so different had they pursued a low carbon development plan to go along with their one child policy. Very sad really.January 10, 2019 at 7:27 pm #44790
Well, who cares what Xiang Songzuo, “a relatively obscure economics professor at Renmin University in Beijing”, who recently defected to the west, has to say? What else is he going to say? And isn’t it to the good of China to rid itself of as many neoliberal minded economics professors as possible?
How many military bases does china have? Oh yes, they just put one on the moon. At any rate if Eurasian multipolarity isn’t the future, then there isn’t much chance of a future.January 11, 2019 at 1:27 am #44792
‘In arguing that China can’t be dictated to, Xi followed in the footsteps of previous leaders. Mao Zedong rejected the advice of Soviet leaders in both his strategy for winning the revolution and in his desire to pursue his Great Leap Forward industrialization campaign. Deng refused to entertain Mikhail Gorbachev’s ideas for pursuing political reform together with economic opening and rejected 1990s “shock therapy” as socialist systems were dismantled rapidly across the world.
“There is no textbook of golden rules to follow for reform and development in China, a country with over 5,000 years of civilization and more than 1.3 billion people,” Xi said.’January 11, 2019 at 2:00 am #44793January 11, 2019 at 2:49 am #44794

“And on the international stage: while Japanese corporations are plundering entire countries, and corrupting governments, China is helping to put entire continents back on their feet, using good old Communist internationalist ideals. The West does its best to smear China and its great efforts, and Japan is doing the same, even inventing new insults, but the truth is more and more difficult to hide. One speaks to Africans, and he or she finds out quickly what goes on. One travels to China, and everything becomes even clearer. Unless one is paid very well not to see.”
