Bush defends capitalism on eve of economic summit.

It’s hard to accept such tripe from an administration that brought us close to the brink of financial collapse and will almost certainly contribute to the firesale of the US car industry to the Koreans or Chinese (be that now or in 12 months time).  As heard on the BBC radio 4 Fri night comedy podcast recently – “capitalism is a great idea in theory, but in practice it just doesn’t work”.

The trouble is that Bush believes that there is some sort of relationship between liberty, unfettered free trade and democracy.  China surely demonstrates that market economies and democratic principles don’t always co-exist.
