In an article in The Economist, Banking on growth*, Jan 16th 2003, it is remarked that
"[China’s] markets for labour, goods and services are nowadays more liberal than those in some capitalist economies"?! Certain partisan vitriol notwithstanding, I think we can agree that The Economist is reasonably credible. This question is thus prompted: Just how communist is China, anyway? I knew there were “free enterprise zones” in China. But I had no idea that things had moved along that far. Can anybody answer the question?
*You’ll have to subscribe to read the article, I think. But that doesn’t matter, since it does not pertain to the throw-away line I highlighted.
