Very good descriptions of China's inner workings, seldom correctly reported by others. Major problem, though, is the author's stance on competitivness, which is completely nonsensical: with Corporate America shipping jobs, technology and investment there - - where is the competition? Rather strange shortcomings on the author's side???
[As Alfred McCoy explains so succinctly recently, the Trans-Pacific Partnership is the Wall Street strategy to economically contain China for this century, but since it will reduce the wages of 90% of American workers, it definitely won't benefit us!]

The explanation of the transition of elites, and their production, in China is explained without undue terminology. The awkward relations are described the problems they give rise to are clearly written. Its a rather brief work, its more like a long essay, and some points are made tersely, such as wealth based on credit and debt rather than physical assets and how that functions to give incentives to avoid war.
