Report Why Our Jobs Are Getting Worse in House prices and the economy Posted September 2, 2010 · Edited September 2, 2010 by Cogs You mean China? China is a bit of an anomoly in that it's economically capitalist but politically communist and guess what? The economy is surging ahead enriching it's own citizens as well as those in the West, it's the communist government that are restricting their wages with their currency manipulation. So much for capitalism driving down the workers' wage, if they had a free market in the currency their workers would be a lot better off. II suppose using evidence doesn't hold much weight with socialists, they're above that sort of thing with their lofty principles and oh so clever dialectic materialism. No, I was thinking of Africa. I'd also dispute that capitalism is 'enriching' the Chinese people in general. Not everyone lives where you can see them on TV. I see you're descending back into rhetoric and arguing the toss otherwise. How about capitalism's oh so clever bankers? But lets leave that here, I'm not interested in that really. My point still stands.
