  • Re: Libertarians in China

    What city will you be going to? I'm in Beijing, and for what its worth, the ratio of libertarians to non-libertarians among expats is roughly similar to that in the west. Among Chinese people though, the ratio is unsurprisingly smaller.

  • Re: Video related to recent worker suicides in foxconn factories

    There are a myriad of reasons why this occurs, and anyone who tells you that the free market is one of them, doesnt understand the issue, or the situation in China. Life in the Chinese countryside is a dirty, poor, backwards existence with no hope of receiving an education or anything resembling a decent job and no prospects for the future bringing

  • Re: High Income Taxes

    People in socialist countries absolutely work less than people in capitalist countries, all things equal. The work they do may be more strenuous, based on more backwards technology, less productive, etc, but as anyone who has actually been to any socialist country can verify with their own two eyes, they will do less of it. Not even debatable, really

  • Re: When are we going to stop citing RJ Rummel?

    For what its worth, my history professor, (here in China) stated that about 90 million were killed (either directly or as a result of failed policy) from 1949 to the early 70s, which is actually 14 million higher than what Rummel has on his site.

  • Re: Why when Italy joined the eurozone, prices almost doubled in a very short time?

    It wasnt just Italy, Austria experienced the exact same phenomena just after joining the eurozone. Exactly why this is, I am also very curious. My best guess would be that there were more regulations and taxation placed on businesses after joining, than there were previously, but I dont have any data to back this up. I would also be interested to know

  • Re: Which Mises seniors are religious and which aren't?

    Are you sure Hoppe isn't religious? Throughout his lectures and works I have never heard him say definitively that he is, or is not religious, but I find him consistently sympathetic to Christianity, especially Roman Catholicism.

  • Re: Compelling Documentary (free online for 3 now)

    If I'm not mistaken, is described as a "right wing hate group" by the SPLC. Could it possibly be that the the first half baked criticism from a known shill for the establishment one picks up on google, may indeed, mean absolutely nothing? Anyways, great documentary.

  • Re: What is/was the worst state to live under in history?

    Maoist China, especially during the cultural revolution.

  • Re: Ha Joon Chang just astonished me.

    As someone who has actually attended multiple educational institutions in both the West and in China, I can say with relative certainty that generally speaking, the gap between the two is less than generally imagined, or in some cases, nonexistent. Does China have biases? Of course; substantial criticism of Mao or serious historical revisionism in general

  • Re: Ralph Raico on the Kosovo War

    [quote user="Ricky James Moore II"] I still hear idiot libertarians saying China is 'communist'. China is less Communist than the USA or Canada. [/quote] Almost every large industry in China is fascistic at best and still outright communist at worst. I would be the last to defend America and one of the first to praise China, but to
