China Model Village

China Model Village

In this photo taken Wednesday, Aug. 26, 2009, Chinese youth practice military drills outside of their school in the model village of Nan Jie Cun, China. Nan Jie Cun in central China's Henan province promotes itself as a model commune run on the socialist policies associated with Mao Zedong, who founded the People's Republic 60 years ago. The village's industries are collectively owned, and workers receive free housing and healthcare. But the village's businesses operate on a strictly capitalist basis, competing in China's ruthlessly competitive market. Migrant laborers, who are a mainstay of the local labor force, receive fewer benefits than the village resident owners. For many, Nan Jie Cun has become a different type of model, a mixture of the free market and government control that has made China a new world power. (AP Photo/Elizabeth Dalziel)
