THE ENORMOUS CHALLENGES THAT CONFRONT CHINA'S COMMUNIST PARTY'S LEADERSHIP

Today's Buggy Topic

It's part of an ongoing series --- to be exact, the third buggy post on China's economy and relations with the United States and others --- that started earlier this week.  And so it would help if you read the previous two posts on the subject:         Click here for the initial article, which compares the success of China's post-Maoist economic reforms since 1979 with the failure of Gorbachev's  campaign between 1985 and 1991 to salvage and reform the decrepit Soviet economy.  Then click here.

Today's long bugged out commentary on the major challenges that face China's CP leadership --- as well as and the obstacles that need to be overcome if the challenges are to met successfully --- is found at a very good economic web-site run by Dr. Brad Setser of the Council of Foreign Relations.  His posts are always illuminating and written in clear, easy-to-follow English --- complete with lots of laudable data and other evidence.  Click here for the relevant thread he started on China, plus the long buggy reply.
