    “China shares up 0.57% in morning trade”

    This is just for show.  If you carefully analyze the China market, it is not truly a free market because everything is owned by the state.  The companies listed in the Shanghai Stock Exchange are all owned by the China Government.  The listed shareholders are just acting as managers for the state company.  Remember, China is still a Communist Country and everything is owned by the government or the state.

    Even private individuals who buy houses, apartments and condo units, they cannot own them.  The government still owns them, but the private individuals are allowed to stay there for 50-70 years.  After such period, the properties revert back to the government/state.

    It’s a fallacy and a complete myth for people to believe that free enterprise/free market reigns in China.
