China Is Our Friend!! Part 49639

Oh, yeah. They're a shining example of...

China has demonstrated that it understands many of its obligations to the 149 other members of the World Trade Organization. ...But China is falling short on its implementation of those new laws and regulations and is failing to adequately enforce laws already on its books. One glaring example: China’s obligation under the WTO to combat the illegal piracy of intellectual property.

While China's economic reformation has brought its population considerable material benefits, the nation has serious and growing economic disparities between rich and poor. It has also lagged in creating full opportunities for its citizens to reach their full potential by continuing to violate basic human rights, workers rights, basic political freedoms, freedom of religion, and freedom of the press.

But it's a great place to buy stuff from. Ask the Waltons.
