Why? China has always been considered Third World. And, besides, there are lots more current and historical examples that show that capitalists don't really care about democracy. All they care about is making money on a risk adjusted basis and that doesn't necessarily mean democracy is best. That's why the U.S. government sometimes overthrows democracies in favor of military dictatorships. An example of that is that when the military took power in Pakistan, from an elected government, then Presidential candidate George W. Bush said that was a good thing for Pakistan. What he meant is that it is good for American multinationals.
: you may want to consider adjusting your definition of third world if china fits into it....
