Top stories of the week 11/21-11/27

  • Caging a Monster by Murong Xuecun is one of the most compelling cases I have seen made about the state of modern China, and what needs to be done to save it. Make sure you read this.
  • Women in China: The sky’s the limit, from the Economist, examines women’s role in the Chinese work place, and explores the differences between types of companies (SEO vs. Multinationals). The piece also looks at how family life is effected by changes in the work place.
  • China’s Wild West, by Megha Rajagopalan at Foreign Policy, reports on China’s rich buying American style properties located in rural China. This particular report focuses on a town modeled after Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

About T

I have been working in China for nearly five years now. I have traveled to more than 30 cities and towns, and have lived in 3 provinces. I am interested in issues concerning development in China and the rest of the world. I hope to provide a balanced look at some of the issues facing China as it continues its rise to power.

    Caging a Monster is fascinating reading. Is Murong Xuecun writing for foreigners? I can’t imagine this being published in China!
