Uh, I don't know if you're

Uh, I don't know if you're actually trying to say that China somehow practices capitalism? I'm sorry, but I don't see any free market ideology coming from over there. It's still very much a state-run economy seeing the same artificial wealth increase that the United States did several decades ago. Just because some fragments of private enterprise are being allowed to cooperate with their government doesn't make it somehow "more capitalist." There's no such thing as state-run capitalism.

"General Motors sold more cars in China than in the United States in the first half of 2010, and China now accounts for one-quarter of the company's global sales. That seems like a lot of capitalism for a country that calls itself communist. How communist is China, really?"

I don't get how car sales make a country capitalist.
