China is the most populated country on Earth, and uses an unusual hybrid economic system. While the country has been communist/socialist since the late 1940s, it has begun to operate under some capitalist principles for financial growth.


Speech Relevance

China comes up in 'Encroaching Control' when Reagan (mis-)quotes Lenin:
Lenin, in 1923, said, "We will take Eastern Europe, we will organize the hordes of Asia and we won't have to take the United States. We will surround it and that last bastion of capitalism will fall into our outstretched hand like overripe fruit." Well, they've taken Eastern Europe. They are organizing the hordes of Asia around the red colossus of China and today I'm sure many of us suspect we are being prepared for the bitter cup of capitulation in Laos that will be watered down only slightly by a few face-saving devices. Cuba is a Russian beach head 90 miles off our Florida coast and more telling that even that, 250,000communistprofessional organizers are scattered up and down the length and breadth of Latin America.
