Can a Communist Party Nurture a Modern Capitalist System?

Can a Communist Party Nurture a Modern Capitalist System? | Hum Geo | Scoop.it

"After growing by leaps and bounds for more than three decades, China’s economic growth has come to a halt, falling from around 12 percent in the second quarter of 2006 to 7.6 percent in the second quarter of 2012. Export-dependent manufacturing sector has been hard hit. The June HSBC Flash Purchasing Managers Index hit a seven-month low of 48.1, down from a final reading of 48.4 in May, the eighth consecutive month that the index has been below 50—the contraction threshold. Is this just a temporary pause, caused by a prolonged slow-down in the world economy or something more serious?"

PBS video: Last Train Home

Every spring, China’s cities are plunged into chaos as 130 million migrant workers journey to their home villages for the New Year in the world’s largest human migration.

 

The cultural importance to New Year's and the massive migratory shift is an incredible topic worth looking at.  The full video is online only until Oct 27th.

This happens every spring. Most people don't even get to visit their family, but they risk their lives in the chaos of the world's largest human migration to spend Chiniese new year with them. Life is pointless of they can't spend new years with thier family. They are just trying to help out their family by getting a "decent" paying job. And the most important time in China they don't even get to spend with their families. ~Jessica
