At this time the car industry in China is mainly held by well-known car producers. They are co-operating slightly with local enterpreneurs and corporations, but the brandname and the intellectual rights are only theirs. General Motors (joint with SAIC-GM-Wuling), Honda (joint with Guangzhou Automobile Group Co) and Nissan are the exceptions. By now Volkswagen, Hyundai and Toyota are also creating and expanding joint ventures. And there are lots of others going to do the same.

Whereas this can be proven wrong by moral enterpreneurs parents of Leah Betts the teenage girl who died of ecstasy have increased the law and protection of young people in terms of class A drugs like ecstasy . Overall we can see how Marxist approaches have given us an insight into understanding why crime and deviancy may occur. It provides a counterbalance to explanations of crime and deviance that not only focus on the individual but also their family in the community. Critical criminology has forced sociologists to explore the wider social and economic factors that have shaped society today. They also point out that crimes can only happen when people break the law however the law reflects those in the ruling classes so surely they have almost avoided this breaking of whats right and......
