Someone's in the kitchen with China

People, I am so tired of hearing about how China's fixed exchange rate is ruining America. We don't need any help ruining America, we are doing it just fine all by ourselves.

I wouldn't even put China's exchange rate policy in the top 10 list of bad things about China.

Lets see....

1. Their support for regimes like North Korea
2. Their throwing of a spanner into possibly helpful international agreements
3. The massive censorship of information they attempt to impose on their citizens
4. Their incredible pollution problem
5. The fact that their citizens cannot move freely around the country
6. The fact that their citizens cannot freely practice any religion they might choose
7. The degree of command and control that the party imposes on the economy
8. The fact that their citizens cannot freely choose the number of children to have
9. The level of infanticide caused by the previous item
10. Their actions and attitudes toward Tibet and Taiwan

Where did you get the idea that people cannot move freely in China? Ever heard of migrant workers, who have produced probably a lot of stuff in your home?

@ Anonymous:
Yes, migrants can work in the cities, but it's difficult to become an official resident and have access to the perks that official residents have. Plus the migrants face widespread prejudice as being poor, stupid, and criminal.

Yeah, those migrant workers are free to move around ... as long as it's between the hours of 6 am and 11 pm. In the states you have to pay extra to live in gated communities, but not in China!

BEIJING — The government calls it "sealed management." China's capital has started gating and locking some of its lower-income neighborhoods overnight, with police or security checking identification papers around the clock, in a throwback to an older style of control.
