Clueless. China has been the big winner because of its joining the WTO. It has been selectively following accepted trade practices to its own advantage anyway. maybe it should be kicked out.

Calling other nations "capitalist" is sheer hypocrisy. Most western countries have far better developed socialist systems than China, with the notable exception of the USA. China has few worker's rights or socialist systems set in place. It is basically a free-for-all for elite power groups and property tycoons affiliated with the leadership. It is run on the effective slave labour of 200 million immigrant workers who have almost no rights at all, while the middle class leach off them.

China is a super-competitive hyper-capitalist country ruled by a non-elected elite. It is not much different from the USA, the western country it is most similar to.

If they can buy cheaper in China they will. One way or another.


Of course, companies will do so - but economy is (unfortunately, as I must say) often not the only consideration in politics. Politics is also about power - and if China quits WTO, it will give WTO countries a lot of power to impose whatever policies they want upon China.
Thus, I don't think China wants to leave WTO - the nation wants to increase its soft power, rather than focusing on hard power.

Actually I wish the government would impose higher duties. It's better for the government to have
all that money than a few fat cats.
The fat cats will impose as much of their own personal duty as the market will allow.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?
