China isn't a communist nation!
Of course China is a communist nation!
The key component of communism is no private ownership; it's contradictory. Communism IS a socioeconomic system...
Communist, no. Socialist, yes
The whole point of communism is to have absolute control of all the economic capital to go towards the administration and then redistribute to the rest of society. Private ownership of the economy is capitalism, plain and simple. If china's political administration is argued to be communist then so can many other middle eastern and African nations.
China is socialist, not communist. That is common knowledge. A socialist nation, by the way, need not have *no* private ownership as some seem to think. However, it does require that a most resources are owned by the state, as is the current state in China (although the private sector is undeniably growing).
embracing capitalism is an acknowledgement that 'communism' does not work.
it is a socialist state, not a communist one, as a communist state is paradoxical.
It employs a form of socialism that used to be communism.
Communism is a political system. It's not economics. China is a communist capitalist country.
