Ron Johnson is putting his money where his mouth is.
The millionaire Senate candidate ruminated during an Aug. 30 appearance on the Wisconsin Radio Network about how “the climate for business investment is far more certain in communist China than it is in the U.S. here.”
But Johnson doesn’t just pontificate about how dictatorships are better for business. He has bought into the theory -- in a big way.
According to Johnson’s most recent personal financial disclosure form, the majority of stock investments he has made are with corporations classified as foreign -- including firms owned by the Chinese government.
Say what you will about Johnson, but don’t question that he practices what he preaches -- at least when it comes to talking up and investing in countries that help businesses avoid what he refers to as the “uncertainty” of democracy.
