Sống đời cộng sản đích thực là gì?

Chào các bạn,

Hôm rồi mình tình cờ ngồi ăn trưa tán chuyện với một anh bạn người Tây Phương. Anh này là con lai Việt, sinh ra ở châu Âu từ những năm 1960s, gia đình anh không còn ai ở VN. Một vài năm anh lại về VN chơi vì rất thương VN. Nói vài chuyện bâng quơ không hiểu thế nào lại nói về chủ nghĩa cộng sản. Mình hỏi “Anh cảm thấy sao, làm việc với những người cộng sản VN”.

Anh nói tỉnh bơ, cộng sản thì làm sao – so what?  “Mày có biết là tao sống như cộng sản không, tức là có cái gì, tao cũng chia sẻ cho mọi người. Tao là cộng sản thực, những người cộng sản hiện nay, chẳng vị nào hiểu sống đời cộng sản là cái gì

Mình cười nói, “Anh nói đúng rồi, đồng ý”. Rồi câu chuyện đơn giản dừng lại ở đó, bọn mình hi5 vỗ tay nhau và đứng dậy đi làm việc tiếp.

VietNamNet Bridge – More than 96 percent of SOEs slated for equitization have been equitized, but only 8 percent of the state’s capital has been transferred to the private sector. vietnam economy, business news, vn news, vietnamnet bridge, english news, Vietnam news, news Vietnam, vietnamnet news, vn news, Vietnam net news, Vietnam latest news, Vietnam breaking news, SOE, equitization, MOF
According to Tran Dinh Thien, the number of SOEs has decreased significantly over the last 15 years of restructuring, from 6,000 in 2001 to 700 in 2016.

This has given more ‘space’ and opportunities to the private sector to make investments. Continue reading “Tens of trillions of dong of state capital nearly lost in equitization”
