What we have here is the multilateral patronage scheme:
The Chinese have a patronage relationship with the PLP who have a mutual patronage relationship with Nygard and the Numbers Boys. These two schemes, plus access to the Public Treasury, (read: increasing national debt) provide the oil and grease for the ultimate patronage relationship of the Politicians with the public. In colonial days the dependence of the masses on the masters was called the plantation system. But patronage relationship sounds more politically correct for the 21st Century as we move forward. Or backward.
