These huge problems faces Chinas political-economic system today

Democracy At Work Prof Wolff comments on the problems the Chinese version of "socialism" faces today. Their dependence on international exports, relationships with international corporations and a lack civil liberties are hurdles for China to face in the near future. "The Chinese government being a government of communists, at least ideologically opposed to capitalism, critics of capitalism, suspicious of capitalism, have a problem in having invited and enabled an immense, private, capitalist sector that can, and already has, bumped heads with the Communist Party and the government. How that plays out is a big problem for the future of China and one for which a solution is not yet clear yet." - Richard D.
