Party World

Foreign Policy reports about Tea Parties around the world. The most surprising? The Billionaire Communists in China. Imagine, the party of Mao and Marx, now spawning a nest of Friedmanites.

China long ago ceased to be Communist in anything but name so it's not surprising that capitalist-libertarian ideas have space in Chinese civic dialogue. As a rule, I think dialogue and ideas are good. I'm less sanguine about capitalism. China, the other hand, is less inclined toward ideas and dialogue but far more enthusiastic about capitalism.

So far, it's working. For some.
