The future of Chinese capitalism
China's emerging economy is an enormous success story and it’s remarkable, say two INSEAD professors, because it's really one big experiment.
In their book, The Future Of Chinese Capitalism, Gordon Redding and Michael Witt say that different parts of China are trying different things to find the best formula.
