Military blogger Baldilocks contrasts and compares:

Who Ya Gonna Call?

Capitalist Country:
• has a lot of money... can contribute hundreds of millions of hard, valuable currency --not to mention invaluable equipment and manpower and know-how—to the cause of alleviating the consequences of a natural disaster...private corporations, charities and individual citizens can, want to and do contribute millions more...

And it can throw a big, expensive party a month later, as well.

Communist Country:
• can barely clean up after its own disasters....has no private charities...private citizens have barely enough of their countries near-worthless currency to feed its own children, much less help to keep others from starving...
Leader might throw a big, expensive party after his knee heals up.
