Dave Hey Friends,
On Sunday June 2, the New York Times ran two articles examining the Chinese Form of Capitalism. What do we think Karl Marx would make of State Capitalism as practiced in China today?

Ken I'm not sure he would regard the chinese system as communist.

Dave Hey Ken,
Good to hear from you. I agree as they have become "capitalist" thus the State Capitalism moniker. But if not communist then what according to Marx: just a bourgeois wolf wrapped in a communist veil? What if Marx could see the Chinese Economy in historical perspective, would he approve?
