Recognising the Potemkin Dragon

 

Basic RGB

In my latest book The Potemkin Dragon: China a Danger to Itself and the World I argue that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) not only runs a sham (Potemkin) market that has resulted in Westerners misunderstand the reality of the modern Chinese economy, but that its Potemkinite nature will undermine Chinese future prospects. In the next couple of weeks I will be running a series of articles on the impact of the Potemkin market on China and the world.
