Troubled by the Terminology – Posted to on 12/26/09

Though I understand Chavez's Maoist philosophy and therefore applaud cooperative relations with China, I am troubled by the word "investment" (Chinese "investment" in Venezuelan economic development).

Such suggests an expropriational relationship with respect to land and labor.

The US has had an exploitative relationship with China for the last generation (be it mostly with Taiwan, Hong Kong, Shanghai?) which has been exploitative of Chinese labor and contradictory to the interests of USA workers and coming to fruition, owners, as it seems that the schism between diluted assets ownership and the mushroomed liabilities of many or most has created a tremendous mess for the folks in the USA.

Maybe it is a Maoist plot to: "I didn't come to praise Reagan, I came to bury him"

I don't know.
