Of course the party should let go, but it does not operate the kind of market economy that Bambi thought he was admiring. This is a system of Leninist corporatism. The party sustains its monopoly of power by control of the economy; it owns what it considers strategically important and allows private companies to operate only because they submit to a board of communist officials.
Entirely different from a Britain in which politicians and unions sit on company boards in order to provide a monopoly of power for right thinking people like Willy, isn’t it? Or where strategically important industries are nationalised.
