Synopsis

John and Doris Naisbitt, long-time China observers, provide a unique perspective on the transformation that is reshaping the country's economic, social, and political systems. Allowed unprecedented access by the Chinese government, they gathered data and information from across all of China's provinces and cities using the same techniques behind Naisbitt's international bestseller "Megatrends". Based on their findings, the Naisbitts argue that, while the U.S. struggles to restore its position in the world, China is creating an entirely new social and economic model for a 21st-century. Just as America created its own unique model more than 200 years ago, the new system fits China's history and society, and the Naisbitts identify the eight pillars: The Emanicipation of the Mind; Balancing Top-down with Bottom-up; Framing the Forest and Letting the Trees Grow; Crossing the River by Feeling the Stones; Artistic and Intellectual Ferment; Joining the World; Freedom and Fairness; and, From Olympic Gold Medals to Nobel Prizes. Taken together, these eight forces are radically changing China from the inside out and ultimately reshaping the dynamics of globalisation itself.

Provocative and groundbreaking, "China's Megatrends" describes this revolution for experts and newcomers alike, offering new insights into China's emergence as a global power.
