How Does this Work Again?

July 5th, 2009 · No Comments

Despite China’s poor human rights record and authoritarian government, US companies have fallen all over each other to do business with the Chinese.  The US government, under both Democrats and Republicans have encouraged this business on the grounds that prolonged exposure to Western goods and markets will undermine the authoritarian regime by showing the Chinese people the example of Western freedoms and democracy.  When I read news stories like this one, I have a hard time seeing how this plan will ever work.
