So you need a lot of Tibet flags for your protest march and you put out a competitive bid to buy them and get a really good price for the complex banners. You wonder how the company can afford to make them, but the answer is simple according to the BBC: ‘Free Tibet’ flags made in China

Police in southern China have discovered a factory manufacturing Free Tibet flags, media reports say.

The factory in Guangdong had been completing overseas orders for the flag of the Tibetan government-in-exile.

Workers said they thought they were just making colourful flags and did not realise their meaning.

The entrepreneurial passion of Disembowel-Meself-Honourably Dibhala is alive and well in the “Middle Kingdom”.

Proving yet again that the capitalists will prove to be their own undoing. I firmly believe that we are in the throes of late capitalism, but I have no predictions as to what will replace this flawed system.

As a real capitalist I would like to see the world actually try it, but, of course, that requires the elimination of corporations which violate the “prime directive” of capitalism on risk.

These flag makers definitely qualify as capitalists, as they have taken the ultimate risk. I don’t imagine the Party will be happy about this.

I’d like to see a system where the economics are a bit more aligned with karma. Capitalism without restraint would be the worst of all possible systems.

There is restraint in capitalism if it is allowed to work. Corporations are the problem, not capitalism. Risk is the restraint, and corporations are designed specifically to limit risk.
