of those who look at China with interest, fear, reprobation, courtesy,
hope, or simple curiosity see the future and sustainability of China as
adapting to the Western economic and value system. But what is the
scenario from a Chinese point of view?
Taking an inside-out approach, John and Doris Naisbitt explain what
enabled China to change in only thirty years from a nation of poverty
and backwardness to become the third largest economy in the world, beat
Germany as export champion, and challenge America as the most
competitive. China has reinvented itself as if it were a huge
enterprise, developing a company culture that fits the demands of the
enterprise and its people on the path to modernity and wealth.
Looking for patterns that form the picture of the new China, the
Naisbitts found what was of much greater dimension and importance than
the economic rise of China: China is creating an entirely new social and
economic system. It is creating a political counter-model to Western
modern democracy fitting to Chinese history and society, just as America
created a model fitting to its history, society, and values more than two hundred years ago.
Economically and politically, China has left the path of imitation,
determined to become the innovation country of the world. In the next
decades, China will not only change the global economy, it will
challenge Western democracy with its own model. Download and start listening now!
