    How China Made Its Great Leap Forward

    Some observers praise its 'state-led capitalism.' But the truth is that leaders, starting with Deng Xiaoping, loosened Beijing's control.

    By Ronald Coase and Ning Wang

    China's post-Mao market transformation is one of the most dramatic and momentous events of our time. It has lifted hundreds of millions out of extreme poverty, freed one fifth of humanity from ideological radicalism, revived one of the oldest civilizations, and inspired all of us to explore the benevolence of the market.

    Yet capitalism as currently practiced in China suffers a severe failing: the lack of a marketplace for ideas. China's market transformation flourished at the ground level without much help from Beijing—contrary to its leadership's claims. But the free flow of ideas has faltered. Until that changes, China will never reach its full potential.
    The other thread had some interesting points raised, so I thought this one might be fun too: Coase and Wang: How China Made Its Great Leap Forward - WSJ.com

    Good point, other than China is probably ranking up there on our "watch" list. I think you're right. It needs moving. Sorry.

    Who needs a flow of ideas when all they need is US companies to keep pouring our jobs to them.

    I doesn't take a whole lot of intellect to copy an idea that already exist.
