Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I'm not sure why you think employment policy explains so much about a non-democratic regime's methods of keeping power, and I'm not sure that "keeping power" is even a very good explanation of Chinese governance objectives in general. As far as silliness is concerned, I think I'd better just let you rethink your last outburst of "iron laws" and the like. It seems you're lapsing into some simplistic paradigms of Chinese politics here, and political science in general, don't you think, especially coming from someone so well versed in the institionalist critique social science?
