Isn’t it an odd coincidence, that these two economically and politically large nations have been hit with crises in the past weeks that were due to pretty much the same thing: market greed and government neglect?
Now the US Treasury in America is effectively taking over the financial markets and the national government in China is having to overhaul their entire dairy industry — not to mention anything with “Made in China” attached to it.
As a small-l libertarian, it’s odd to see, that perhaps there is a place for “big government” in the free market — when that free market goes horribly and harmfully awry. But of course, it would be better if some regulation that were supposed to be in place — which my tax dollars were paying for already! — was actually WORKING.
America and China. What strange bedfellows — analogically, at least — they have become these days.
