I don't think that what Chinese people need is even more responsibility - most Chinese people are already overwhelmed with their current life and a deep political reform would only lead to even more insecurity and ambiguity.

What China needs are economic reforms first to foster consumption and give people, especially the vast population on countryside and in smaller cities who is struggling to make a life - space to breathe. Then, a political reform that allows for more participation in the political decision making process for people could be started - perhaps first on local level, later on provincial level and after another decade or so finally on national level.

Those Chinese who already feel that they are ready to take more responsibility can meanwhile go ahead and join the communist party - currently, those people are still a minority and people have other problems than dealing with political issues.
Give Chinese people time to develop - and take your time to develop yourself too.

I see it like confucius: everyone can start with him or herself to keep the country in order.

""Wen warned at a press conference after the conclusion of the annual parliamentary session that tragedies like the Cultural

Revolution may happen in China again should the country fail to push forward political reform to uproot problems occurring in the society. The country risks losing the results of the reform and opening up over the past three decades without further reforms,

as new problems such as unfair income distribution, lack of integrity and corruption, have not been resolved.""


This is wise advice. Maybe the phase of frenzied capitalism in the development of socialism is drawing to an end.

Without meaningful progress toward socialism in the form of more equitable income distribution another purge of those

unwilling to let go of the excesses of capitalism may be necessary for the benefit of the nation.

The most important thing, by far, is not to let the west trick China into privatizing any state owned enterprises.

ESPECIALLY THE BANKS!!!  Once this happens they might as well disband the military and lay out the red carpet for

thieving capitalist to take over China.

If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

Billionaire may become first tycoon on top Party body



2012-April-19  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

    ONE of China’s richest men, Liang Wengen, is considered a front-runner to become the first private businessman on the Communist Party’s Central Committee after being nominated as a potential delegate to the 18th Party Congress this autumn.
    Liang, president of the country’s biggest construction equipment group, Sany Heavy Industry, is among 72 candidates to attend the congress on a tentative list released by the Hunan Provincial Party Committee on Sunday.
    There have been calls for private businessmen to be allowed to join the Central Committee ever since they were allowed to join the Party 10 years ago.
    Liang reportedly passed an assessment in the autumn by the Central Committee’s organization department, which is in charge of Party personnel assignments, and is likely to become an alternate member of the Central Committee.
    An alternate member can be voted in to fill a vacancy on the Central Committee. According to Party rules, a member or alternate member should have been a Party member for at least five years. The existing Central Committee has 204 members and 167 alternate members.
    Fang Ning, director of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences’ Institute of Political Sciences, said it would be great if Liang became the first private businessman to join the top Party organ.
    “It shows how China has changed in its social structure since its reform and opening up, and how this change will be reflected in the political system and the power structure,” Fang said.
    Private business owners were banned from joining the Party until its 16th Party Congress in 2002, when “outstanding people from other social classes,” including private business owners, were made a source of potential members.
    Liang, 56, topped both Forbes’ China’s 400 richest list and the Hurun rich list last year, with net personal assets of US$9.3 billion.
    His company, Sany, acquired a major German concrete pump maker, Putzmeister, in February. (SD-Agencies)

Bribery tops list of China's business crime

By Cai Wenjun (Shanghai Daily)  08:52, January 16, 2012

BRIBERY tops the list of wrongdoings that saw officials of China's state-owned enterprises investigated or sentenced on criminal charges last year.

A report showed that 88 cases in state-owned enterprises involved corruption thataveraged 33.84 million yuan (US$5.37 million) for each person, while the 2010 figurewas 9.57 million yuan.

The report said cases involving senior officials or top executives in both state ownedand private enterprises were rising - from 95 in 2009, 155 in 2010 to more than 200 last year.

Among the 220 cases last year, 202 were work-related crimes, according to the Faren magazine, which conducted the study.

The cases looked at were only those which had been publicly reported, said writer Wang Rongli.

The report covered 199 of the 202 cases, as suspects in the other three cases were still at large, Wang said.

Of those, 88 involved state-owned enterprises and 111 involved private enterprises.

On average, state-owned enterprise officials were 52.59 years old when alleged illegal activities were exposed. Of 56 cases which were concluded last year, 14 state-owned enterprise officials received death sentences with two-year probations and six were jailed for life.

The biggest case involved Feng Yongming, a furniture tycoon and de facto controller of stated-owned Guangming Group Furniture Co in Yichun in northeast Heilongjiang Province. He was sentenced to death with two-year probation and his personal assets confiscated in July over corruption involving a total of 790 million yuan.

In 2005, Feng featured on the Hurun Rich List with 500 million yuan in personal assets.

The average age of those involved in the 111 private enterprise cases was 45.67 when their crimes were detected and fraud topped the list of offenses, the report said.

Two were executed last year, another five received death sentences, four received death sentences with probation and 11 were jailed for life.

The report said group crime was conspicuous last year with at least 79 cases involving two or more individuals working in concert. Those cases actually involved atotal of 1,266 suspects.

Cases involving officials in gang-related crime dropped, while fraud and swindling rose from 19 cases in 2010 to last year's 41.

It is the nature of things that the mouse is attracted to the piece of cheese, as it is as much as sugar is bad for a person with diabetes, as money and politics don't mix well!  As true as the sun rises from the east, so does money cum politics corrupts absolutely!

Bribe-taking official gets death penalty

By Zhao Wen  |   2012-4-24  |     NEWSPAPER EDITION

A former top district official in Shanghai was sentenced to death yesterday with two-year reprieve for taking bribes exceeding 15.47 million yuan (US$2.45 million).

Chen Meng, former deputy chief of Putuo District, was sacked last September, seven months after his promotion, when disciplinary inspectors found him guilty of bribery. Prosecutors in Shanghai No. 2 Intermediate People's Court said Chen, 49, took advantage of his position as deputy chief of Songjiang District between 2003 and 2011 to help others win construction contracts.
From 2004 to 2008, Chen received 11.27 million yuan from a company boss surnamed Ma for helping him with company registration and land transactions.

Chen also took 2.5 million yuan of public funds from a township official surnamed Shen in Songjiang District. In return, Chen approved several road and bridge projects in the town.

The court said Chen also received bribes from three other people and offered illegal help for their businesses. He spent some of the money to buy houses.

Before he worked in Songjiang, Chen had served as office director of the Jing'an District government, deputy Party secretary of Jing'an District Property Management Bureau, and general manager of Jing'an Properties Group.

Chinese police investigate 6,500 cases of commercial bribery in 5 years

09:27, April 18, 2011

Some 6,500 cases of commercial bribery, involving 1.1 billion yuan (160 million U.S. dollars), were investigated by Chinese police in the last five years, according to the Ministry of Public Security.



Over 5,000 people involved in these cases were penalized, according to a statement released Sunday from the ministry's workshop on combating commercial bribery held in central Chinese city of Changsha.



According to the statement, the ministry has launched a crackdown, focusing on sectors most prone to commercial bribery, including construction, real estate, finance, logistics, hospitals and education.



The ministry plans to step up efforts in investigating commercial bribery cases and collecting information so as to discover more of such cases.
