    Especially when it suits an argument. We'll leave out all the horrible little details right?

    "Say what you will about their shortcomings, they are not a case of free-market fundamentalism and they are economically successful."

    I would love to hear what labor leaders in China over the years have to say about that especially those who were imprisoned and tortured.

    Lead in toys? Drywall? Democracy?

    Perhaps a viewing of Last Train Home

    Enjoying that iPhone I hope.

    But go ahead, start with..."say what you will"

      If you want to argue that Austrianism produces economies that are more just than PRC's, you're probably correct.  

      But the Austrians argue that government intervention retards economic growth, and I've offered the PRC as a counterexample to that claim.  Nothing more.
