US President Trump Just Killed Google Android

When China began the ‘free-marketization’ of its economy in the 1980’s it was clear that China was going to be an economic powerhouse.  They had an excellent blue print to follow in capitalist British Hong Kong and a singular drive to raise its citizens from the poverty of its communist past.
