<China controls the world
Nobody "controls the world", but among the countries that influence it the most, it's undeniable China is and long has been one of them.
>China can't decide internal politics of core capitalist countries
Give it up. the CCP is and has long been a global player, hip deep in formulating and advancing neolib ideology.
>Name one legislation they have changed in these countries
WTO? GATT? ISDS? TPP? Literally all the neolib garbage rubberstamped by every core NATO legislature for the past 5 decades has been pushed collectively by every country ruled by neolib ideologues, China included. Not to mention all the policies founded on (secret in many but far from all) cases joint military/intelligence actions with China.
>It was a fuck up on both sides
Kewl equivocation. China was in the wrong versus the USSR. Period. And I say that as someone who thinks the entire ML project was probably an abortion from day 1.
The tears of laughter streaming down my face are the only fitting answer I can bring to someone saying Dengists have "purged the neolibs" or "have goals compatible with western social democracy". The entire CCP regime is now irreparably neolib to its bones, made its initial IPO to the fortunes of their princelings by selling the hard-won policy victories of the global labor movement for the prior century at firesale prices, has been liberalizing and deregulating China nonstop, produced inequality on a scale unseen in history, and any actual gains to material conditions for the typical Chinaman have come exclusively from bitch-basic competent industrialization, against the background of an inferior and worse-performing ripoff of policy previously championed by the neolib-fascist "Asian Tiger" economies (Sp, SK, HK, Tw).
That anyone would call themselves a leftist, and unironically shill for the travesty of a travesty that is communism with Dengist characteristics using boilerplate IMF talking points, then go on to exonerate it of complicity for its every crime against the workers of the world at home and abroad, is a farce beyond parody.
>They hired unemployed workers
Chinese employment stats are severely distorted by their "hukou" internal passport system that pushes veggies around on the plate by pretending people live and work in completely different locations. Ironically, Capitalist China could probably use explicit MMT and an actual universal employment program. Especially since the state sector has been shrinking every year for decades.
That's not really relevant to high state finance, especially internationally.
