I've read a few stories, some seem to be returning, but it's a case by case scenario I guess. Some businesses open but not demanding employees to come in. Some business not open due to product shortage.
At this point I'd imagine the supply chain would be severely out of wack due to the longer than expected break. Anybody's guess as to when that could be normalized but based on how efficiently China works it could be up and running very soon.

No sir.

Also, just because a country engages in capitalism it does not mean they are not communist. Communism is a government structure and ideology. Capitalism is an economic model. Both can exist in the same country and are not the antithesis of each other, despite what the mafia teachers taught us in grade school.

The Chinese have far less rights than people in Western countries. This cannot be denied. And the reason for it is...communism. That's not the only difference, but it's a YOOOOOOJ one.

Not that I'm a big fan of American capitalism, but China doesn't do capitalism better than America or the West.

However, China does communism better than North Korea. But that's not hard to do.

Also I don't know why you're harping on colors of flags. It means nothing. Red may symbolize communism, but it's not a requirement. And OP isn't so dumb to believe that. But for some reason, you think he is.

There are people on other forums that have had their FT orders shipped today. Well, at least their order data is showing it has been shipped.

Also, there are Chinese retailers that have been back to work days ago.

No one knows what is going on. But I agree, you won't get the real story from the Chinese govt.

At least they use “Bitcoin”.
Thanks
That’s reassuring for when the banks collapse.

Wotofo Support Feb 10:

Dear Valued Customers,

In reaction to the coronavirus outbreak in China, national and local governments here have made certain decisions related to the shutdown of industrial production in the country. As of this writing, the decision to delay the resumption of work for individual companies may extend to February 20th, which could result in shipping delays of products.

Orders paid after 13:00, Jan 17 (Beijing Time) through Feb 20 will have to be shipped out after Feb 20. Then your packages will be shipped by fast international shipping service like DHL. We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause, and we do appreciate those that stay supportive for Wotofo under this situation. Thank you very much for your understanding!

Mail from China won't spread coronavirus, assured by international virus specialists. So, no panic on this. We will continue to monitor this situation and provide updates timely.

Best regards,

Wotofo Team

japan had essentially the same govt for nearly 60 years

taiwan and singapore beacons of democracy ditto south korea

it's pretty much par for the course in asian tigers, regulated economies and authoritarian govts


please tell me in what sense china is communist (examples please) VL and no 'I sez they are' isn't a valid argument
