New on the site this time:
Wen Tiejun’s “The Modernization of the Chinese People,” a rousing essay originally published in 2000 and reprinted by two Chinese media outlets during the 20th Party Congress. Wen’s message? “China needs jobs!”
Also, a recent talk by Peking University economist Yao Yang on the resilience of China’s economy, with interesting things to say about semiconductors and covid policy.
