This is not a new article but it does show how the communist country helped its average (non-muslim, non concentration camp in active genocide) citizen fare, and is doing ok.
This, in particular, caught my eye.
During the epidemic period, most vulnerable people within the system could subsist on the minimum living allowance they are already provided. In the meantime, facing the temporal hardships suffered by some low-income people, the government adopted a flexible process and raised allowances with an extended coverage immediately.
Guess every country has its plusses and minuses. I don’t want to live in China. For one because I’m not Chinese and don’t speak the language. Plus I love the United States so much. I really do. But the “It could always be worse” to me just isn’t an excuse to not “be best”.
I love this country and want the best for it and all its citizens, so I feel it is my civic duty to point out where we fail our fellow people, especially those born here that love this country just as much as those from the Mayflower or the natives and Mexican before them even. People that have friends, families, children, grandparents, communities, jobs and lives here.
Here is the article that explains how China managed fairly well economically. Their economy is doing so well they anticipate it being the very best Black Friday/Cyber Monday in history and have been gearing up for it with cargo shipments from all over the globe. They expect luxury brand items and electronics to do the best, so that points to a lot of disposable income.
Look. I may be a left leaning person but even I can’t back Communism. It’s corrupt. Is it more corrupt than American politics, military espionage, and monetary systems thievery. Well, I’m guessing probably, but I’m sure it’s a close race there. Lol
Hey….you gotta laugh at yourself sometimes. It feels good.
But the dictatorship and lack of freedoms, no way would the average American citizen let anything that restricting take place here. That’s the beauty of the free spirit of America. Maybe it comes with a bit of a steep price during a pandemic though. Anyway……
It would be interesting to compile a side by side analysis of every country and the average citizens economy during this crisis. To then see how each country helped its citizens. We have not done enough for our civilians, I personally believe.
We’ve done a lot for large mega-corporations. We’ve faltered a lot of other businesses. I think we need a trickle up affect. The more disposable money consumers have the more likely they are to spend it. We’ve already seen trickle down doesn’t work. At best it gives out some mostly crummy jobs.
