Tiananmen crackdown and the persistence of Chinese memory

Li's visit helped reorient Chinese perceptions of India

For perhaps the first time, media commentaries in China are conceding that Indian perceptions and fears about China needed to be understood and acknowledged. And that the Chinese lacked an understanding and a respect of India. #Ch-India #Manmohan Singh #EyeOnChina #Li Keqiang

Don't look now, but Mao Zedong is sneaking into your wallet...

For all the chatter about the "inevitable" rise of the Chinese yuan to global reserve currency status, the reality of the structural weaknesses in China's own economy may mean that that transition may not be accomplished quite so easily. #renminbi #CurrencyWars #EyeOnChina #Chinese yuan

New China leadership team has no room for reformers

The new leadership team of the Chinese Communist Party reflects a disappointing status quo. There is no one in the emerging top leadership who counts as an economic reformer, much less a political reformer. #China #Communist Party of China #EyeOnChina #Hu Jintao #Xi Jinping #Li Keqiang

Why China is worse off than it was a decade ago

As it prepares for a leadership transition, China looks back on a decade of lost opportunities. Today, the country nurses a weaker economy and unhappier neighbours than it did in 2002, the year of the last major transition. #China #Wen Jiabao #Communist Party of China #EyeOnChina #Hu Jintao
