    There is no justice in China. Why are we doing business with them?

  • I’d like to see an analysis of the way China is governed today and how it compares to the ways it was governed under the Chinese emperors. Apart from there being a nine man committee at the top (how long will that last?) I don’t see any differences at all.

    Based on my current reading: Treason by the Book by Jonathan Spence.

    Corruption in China is like mud in a rice paddy.

    It’s a great read. Spence can write.

  • A good review of Treason by the Book:

    What’s going to happen to other dissidents in China though? Especially those close to Chen?

    @4,

    “I don’t see any differences at all.”

    New Zealand signed a Free Trade Agreement with China in 2007 and so far its been very good for us, eg, our once vast trading gap has nearly closed.

    Also in 2007 China reformed its property laws and people can now own the buildings they erect and land can be leased by foreigners for 70 years.

    There’s a long way to go there, but once you start signing up FTAs and start the long process on property rights there is only one way its going to go.. capitalism and some form of democracy.
