Some Reflections on Li Keqiang’s Visit to India

Some Reflections on Li Keqiang’s Visit to India

In the case of the relations between China and India the success of their start must be proved by further developments.

Deluding Ourselves Over China

Deluding Ourselves Over China

Everyone seems ready to believe in the Chinese success story and China’s transformation into a new global power. Plenty of evidence indicates that the current enthusiasm for China’s rise and its economic growth are just another delusion that will inevitably end up in a new abrupt awakening.
