China In Touch, 29 January 2020, Issue 269

Its not just a Chinese New Year its also a new decade. Along with a fresh haircut and sweeping old rubbish out the back door, it’s a suitable time to clean-up some decade long failures that have haunted discussions about China’s growth and economy.Here’s a selection of candidates from my bookshelves that deserve to be swept away in a New Year and a new Decade cleanout. The granddaddy of them all is The Coming Collapse of China published in 2001. Its followed by  The China Crisis (2013) and Beyond Chinas Coming Collapse (2009). Amongst others we can add the gloomy  China Dream (2002) and Chinas Uncertain Future (2012). There is a temptation to consign some more recent publications to the same fate.

China In Touch, 15 January 2020, Issue 268

It is getting too cold for tourists in Xi’an but it  doesn’t stop the nightly flood of visitors to the Great Tang Mall stretching South from the Big Wild Goose pagoda where the first Buddhist scripture in China were translated for the Tang dynasty court. The mall stretches over two city blocks and is dominated by stately statues of past emperors and the Tang poets like Li Bai and DuFu. Unashamedly designed for tourists it also captures a Chinese cultural outlook. In mid-December the throngs of Xi’an residents, free from tourists, provide some local perspectives which are easily overlooked by visitors.
