China is a National Socialist form of Government. It allows some free enterprise but keeps the boot on the neck of the entrepreneur. It is a form of Communism, just not the Lenin version.

I disagree. China is almost a completely unregulated capitalist nation, with little concern for worker or environmental rights. Entrepreneurs and investors are so revered, that even when faced with blatant crimes of bribery (which is very common), China will prosecute those who take bribes and not the wealthy doing the bribing.

However, despite the free flow of thoughts and ideas on the economic side, China has managed to divorce that from the free flow of thoughts and ideas anywhere else. Free speech, freedom of information, and the right to assemble are just a few of the things normally associated with free countries that China restricts. It is still very much a one-party authoritarian nation.

I try to refrain from using the word Communist, because Communism can be (and is) interpreted in different ways. But that is just semantics.

A great documentary on China and capitalism is call "The national republic of capitalism". I very much recommend it.

that is pretty much spot on. everyone associates authoritarianism with communism, when they are totally independent. Sure they have many socialist policies, but so does canada, neither one is communist. id say china is actually more capitalist than most nations considering pretty much the driving force of their current existence is profit, people and ethics be damned.
