Is China Home for a Free Market, Libertarian American?

I enjoy this website from American "Lee" who has been living in China for a few years. He's a skilled tech guy who took a job in Beijing a few years ago for the hell of it. He's been blogging about it, and has had some hilarious posts. Today he notes that his contract is expiring in Beijing. He weighs his options at Lee in China:

Wow, it’s been a shitload of time since I wrote anything. It’s not that I’ve lost the passion for writing an online journal or anything, it’s just that everything I’ve been doing lately are things I’ve done in the past. I go to Russian clubs. I stay out until eight in the morning. I go to a doctor who will write me a prescription for anything I want. I get solicited by both hookers and Nigerian drug dealers in bars. Same old same old, life in Beijing.


Other than that I have some friends going with me to Hong Kong, so we’re going to party our balls off on Friday and Saturday nights down in Wanchai. Wish me luck. With California $42 billion in debt and our current president spending like there’s no fucking tomorrow the LAST country on the planet I want to move to right now is the United States.

Great place to visit but I sure as fuck don’t want to live there [America], at least not right now.

If you check out other posts, he lives well in China. He's a free market, libertarian guy and feels more comfortable over there.

  1. Take a look at Jim Rogers. He did the same thing. He sold all his US assets and moved to the far East. He also stated a while back that California was more communist then China. Other comments included the US Federal Reserve is going to print money until they run out of trees.
