Dealing With China: An Insider Unmasks the New Economic Superpower
When Hu Jintao, China's current leader, came to visit the New York Stock Exchange and Ground Zero in 2002, he asked Hank Paulson to be his guide. It was a testament to the pivotal role that Goldman Sachs had played in helping China experiment with private enterprise. As the two men stared at the physical destruction Al Qaeda had unleashed on US soil, Paulson was standing next to the man who embodied a greater threat--and a greater opportunity--for the US in the years ahead.
In DEALING WITH CHINA, the bestselling author of On The Brink draws on his unprecedented access to both the political and business leaders of modern China to answer several key questions:
·How did China become an economic superpower so quickly?
·Who really runs China?
·How does business gets done there?
·What are the best ways for Western business and political leaders to engage, compete and beat China?
·How can Western investors profit in China?
·Can China be stopped? DEALING WITH CHINA is written in the same anecdote-rich, page-turning style as his memoir, On The Brink. If his last book was about the hot war of the financial crisis; his current project is about cold war. And cold war often makes for more interesting reading.
