    Let’s use China as an example.

    In 1990, there were 750 million people in poverty. Then the pro-market reforms kicked in, and in 2016 the number of people in poverty has fallen to 7 million.

      As a general rule, let’s not. Their government is a mess of conflicting elements and as such, it’s not a good example of anything

      And I’m pretty sure you’re using the statistics that says you’re not poor if your income is above $1.50/day, which is as low a bar as calling someone a model of honesty for lying less than Donald Trump 🙄
