We can't discount the roll of corruption in global capitalism. Rules are merely words in the absence of enforcement.

I have been to a few countries historically ruled by repressive regimes that have undertaken a policy of "economic restructuring" and it is amazing how easily capitalism plugs into their longstanding systems of oppression. It is plug and play. The system of overt oppression is converted to the capitalist system of marketed behavior with an undercurrent of violent oppression to back it up.

Colombia, Indonesia, China, India, Russia, all follow this basic model.
