Never in my American life did I expect to be reminded of a slogan I grew up with: "Only socialism could save China." Except this time it was America, or American economy, that was being saved. ...


Some people seem to take some delight in thinking that the USA can only pull itself out of this mess through "Socialism".

What people need to remember is that there are plenty of countries which have better regulated financial systems and social welfare systems but are nowhere near "socialist".
I believe that there is a happy median between socialism and unfettered capitalism.
Many European economies do this quite successfully, however because of the internationally linked economy and the scale of the financial meltdown they've been caught up in the mess which started in the USA, as has China.

As the article noted China has smashed the "iron rice bowl" and it could be said that in some ways China does have a (partial) system of unfettered capitalism, with all its attendent problems, a little like the USA is criticised for.

Black Cat, White Cat



Your topic title reminds me of one popular talk show on CBC radio....the "White Coat, Black Art"

Whatever color the cat....

As long as it catches the mouse...

Don't attack the owner...

And don't pee and poo all over the carpet...

It is a good cat!
