The economic reforms and subsequent growth in China may be the most astonishing and hopeful event of our age. Weiying Zhang was among the leaders who set China on its path of change.
In his new collection of essays, he provides a unique perspective on his country’s market economy, implementation of economic policies, and the potential for Chinese economic development. Weiying especially emphasizes the importance of entrepreneurs in the new China and celebrates leaders who mixed sustained idealism with judicious compromise. Readers will appreciate Weiying’s ability to address both everyday economic issues and the questions that confront a nation’s leaders, not the least a nation seeking to escape mass poverty.
