Who benefits from China’s government

Who benefits from China’s government

Frank Coleman, Scotia

 

As a follow up to Paul Santo’s July 7 letter, “Trump being played by base, dictators,” here is a question: Who said, “The one thing that actually works, you know, state-run communism may not be your cup of tea—but their (China) government works”? It was an admirer of China that has a one-party Communist regime that has ruled since 1949, tolerating no opposition and often dealing brutally with those who disagree with the doctrines of that regime.

Was it Kim Jong-Un? Vladimir Putin? Or maybe Fidel Castro? All three appear to be good guesses. But the correct answer is Jeffrey R. Immelt, the leader of one of the world’s largest private-sector employers from 2001-2017.

Makes you think.
