I think you're comparing to Pure Communism to Regulated Capitalism and declaring Capitalism the winner, but in an effort to not appear unbaised concede that Pure Capitalism doesn't work either (as the current financial crisis would indicate). Perhaps more apples-to-apples analysis would be beneficial?
If you're referring to China, I'm going to refer you to all the human rights violations.
