	What is the point of crossposting this item? It only sows confusion
to frame it in the WSJ's terms as a complaint that "market forces don't
drive China". Of course they do. China produces for profit, not for human
	The WSJ's complaint makes about as much sense as the John Birch
Society characterizing Eisenhower as a Communist in the 1950s. For
extremists like the WSJ op-ed writers, anything that falls short of their
own Attila the Hun capitalist fundamentalism is practically Trotskyite. I
wouldn't take this business seriously and would urge Walter to read Martin
Hart-Landsberg or Gerard Greenfield on China. Marxist scholarship generally
has more to say on such topics than WSJ editorialists.

CB: Why not chew gum and walk at the same time ? No doubt Marx and Engels
read the economic discussions in the bourgeois press. Gotta know what the
enemy is saying and doing.
