China is still a communist nation.
You should leave your cave more often.

I see no signs of Communism here Robert. Just a few nationalised industries that you might expect in other nations regardless of political leanings. A hell of a lot of Capitalism and a little Socialism. Still, what do I know, I just live here and don't write definitions of ideological terms.

But Robert will tell you this is the Capitalist stage of socialism and communism. And he may tell you that you do not live in China and have never been here.

China is clean and looks like fantasy~!

I wish it did look like a fantasy. As an amateur photographer living in China I find that landscape photography borders on the impossible in the parts of China that I have visited.

My experiences with socialism outside of China have left me associating it with bringing a country to it's financial knees with empire building and overspending budgets every time Socialists get elected. If China is socialist then it is a very strange form of socialism in my understanding.

It is very obvious to me that capitalism prevails here in Chengdu. But China is.... China. If it works then it doesn't need a label.

No signs of communism in China?
Half the economy is from state owned enterprises.
The "capitalism" you see is retail commerce. Something that the communist party doesn't need to bother with right now.
If you think this is the sign of capitalism then we in the U.S. need to nationalize all banks and major industries.
And by nationalizing, I don't mean putting them under the control of the federal reserve which is owned by
a handful of Israelis. (you aren't supposed to call them Jews anymore.. they've succeeded in making that
a derogatory term).

If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?
