    It Is very simple , the communist model for Government does not work .Capitalism Is proven to bring peoples standard of living up . And It provides more oppurtunity .

    If they didn't admit some capitalism, they'd be more like North Korea than Taiwan. Since Deng, China has taken a more pragmatic tack but in terms of politics they are still the hard-line communists. Some author said that the Chinese communist saw the Soviet Communist in power one day and then out on the streets selling apples the next and they were determined that that was not going to happen to them. The political reigns are tight. No dissenting political parties; no rule of law and that has not changed.

    A communist government/economic system is simply disastrous for the economy. This is why the Soviet union was never truly the economic equal of the U.S. and a large part of why it eventually collapsed.

    Because Communism as it is practiced doesn't work. The Chinese government learned from the Russians.  It's a like a ponzi scheme.  As long as more is going in at the bottom it works just fine.  But when people at the bottom can no longer carry the people at the top, it implodes.  China with it huge population couldn't afford to let their economy collapse like the Russians. They decided instead to try and meld capitalism into the mix but still call it communism.

    China lives in a Global marketplace and has money to invest to make money and to provide for its huge population. Communism can not feed the masses in China, free trade can.

    So if you want to eat, you do business. It is as simple as that.

    Communist or not, they have to exhist in the world with other Nations.

    China, historically, is a Communinst country and they won't relinquish that title simply because they have sacrificed too much in the face of bigoted Capitalists. As a matter of honor they will always declare themselves Communist. But actually they operate as a Socialist country in every sense. Capitalism is a global trend, no one escapes it's clutches. In today's society it's sink or swim. China has embraced Capitalism for the sake of its people.

    Your assertion is misinformed. China is following no capitalistic policy.

    Look at the rights of the people.

    If you think China looks like a Capitalist country, I should tell you, that's wrong.
    The Chinese government is still authoritarian though it said they are communist.
    You should know, Chinese have less Human Rights in China, and many Chines are 
    As you can see, many Chinese efforts to change China such as Liu Tan and so on, but these made less things for China cause most Chinese are still Ignorant just like sleeping.
