Summary:Chinese capitalism, moving the mountain studies the phenomenon of the quasi-free market system that is developing in China. Examines economic modernization at a shoe factory, where communist worker ideals and capitalist goals coexist. Explorers charges of rampant corruption, and the gap between rich and poor for the 90 million Chinese who have moved to cities from rural areas. Human rights in China discusses what progress is being made in the area of human rights in China. Visits a radio talk-show host who invites callers to grill government officials. Also visits newspaper editors who sometimes run pieces that criticize the government's human rights record. The path of Chinese privatization visits Ma Bei Village, which is booming due to profits from private business. Discusses how industries that once protected all workers under the communist system, are gradually phasing in privatization, letting worker unrest dictate the pace.
