Sees China rejecting big government


I couldn't but smile at an Associated Press article on the front page of The Bellingham Herald on Nov. 15. It stated "China's leaders pledged Friday to open state-dominated industries to private competition and ease limits on foreign investment in e-commerce and other businesses in a sweeping reform plan aimed at rejuvenating a slowing economy."

This must be a big disappointment to progressives here in the United States. While they push for bigger government and more government control, the Chinese are figuring out more capitalism is needed to get their sluggish economy moving.
