Re: Chinese corp. wants to build an electric car factory in Chile

To the admin probably you are right that China is not a communist country; perhaps I was wrong about that. In some ways it is more capitalist with open markets and private property ownership. However in one specific aspect it is more communist/socialist and that is greater government control and inf...

Re: Chinese corp. wants to build an electric car factory in Chile

Also, what we need to understand is that China is a communist country. The major companies are controlled by the government in one way or another, or at least theoretically could be. You want to boycott the UK or US government, just boycott their government. Don't need to boycott all the companies. ...

Re: Chinese corp. wants to build an electric car factory in Chile

Most of the crimes of the Brits, the more major ones, were carried out years ago. It was a different age. The reason the Brits carried out more crimes in their colonies than other countries during the empire/colonial period was simply that they were more powerful at the time than the French, Dutch e...

Re: Chinese corp. wants to build an electric car factory in Chile

A less badly behaving china on human right, democracy, freedom of speech, environment, and playing by international trade standards, etc, etc, is directly linked to chinas ability to follow through with its development. Are you saying that improved human rights, democracy and freedom of speech woul...

Re: Chinese corp. wants to build an electric car factory in Chile

Gerrymandering is a serious issue in the US, so is the influence of corporate money and other issues. In the UK we also have various undemocratic factors such as the house of lords and the queen having to sign the bills. However the things that happen in Russia, China, Middle East etc are clearly mu...

Re: Chinese corp. wants to build an electric car factory in Chile

With the women’s’ rights I was trying to make a very broad comparison with another struggle that is eventually having some success after a long time. I don’t mean for my analogies to be that close to each other or anything. When I made my ranking of countries ethically (as mentioned at the start of...

Re: Chinese corp. wants to build an electric car factory in Chile

iuf China fails we would probably have to pay more for our TVs and phones and the price of everything in fact would be about 10% higher, so we woudl be 10% poorer, but that's all. China is resource hungry because the country is successful, it if fails they will use less resources. Successful countri...

Re: Chinese corp. wants to build an electric car factory in Chile

The real elephant in the room is that China is a nasty dictatorship with no regard for human rights and that doing business with them supports that regime. Here is Last Week Tonight with a video on China (clocking in at 20 minutes).

There has been quite a few days this month where it rained for some hours and overall we have had a lot of rain this month. I wouldn't like to guess how many millimetres.

Re: Private schools

The way the admin writes it is if there are crappy low end public schools, and high end private schools, with nothing in between. There are a range of options from bottom to top with plenty in the middle. You can get free schools, but there are also, as I understand it, schools for 50,000 a month, 1...

Re: Private schools

That list of British schools doesn't of course include other English, bilingual schools with connections or style more to US or elswhere than Britain. So you could also look at SEK, Lincoln for instance which I don't think is on that list. My original shortlist when I looked into this 5 years ago al...
