The China challenge: War or peace

Por • 17 nov, 2012 • Category: Internacionales

China’s political transition is of massive importance for the world. The crucial relevance of the whole Bo Xilai affair is also about political reforms. In a more open political system, a man like Bo, the disgraced party secretary from Chongqing, would have been stopped long before he could cause serious damage, or he would have amended his ways to run for the top position with full legality. Yet political reforms are not simply a Chinese internal matter. As China became the world’s second-largest economy and continues its fast-track development, the issue is no longer the full integration of China into the world economic system but also China’s full integration into the global political system. For the past 30 years, the World Bank has assisted with the growth and transformation of the Chinese economy. Yet in the much more difficult and delicate – both for China and the world – political reforms, China is not assisted by anyone. Beijing needs guidance to guarantee that political changes in the country will help it integrate into the world and will not set the two further apart. It is therefore an issue of global governance, with heavy fallout in terms of peace and the global economy.

El techo de la reforma china

Una vieja máxima china nos recuerda que noventa leguas representan solamente la mitad de un trayecto de cien leguas: en efecto, la última parte del camino es siempre la más dura. Se diría que tal es el contexto que acecha el XVIII Congreso que el Partido Comunista de China (PCCh) celebra estos días en Beijing, confrontado a retos de tan grueso calibre que advierten de lo delicado del momento de la larga reforma iniciada en 1978.

Insider trading, Chinese style

Within the People’s Republic of China, the report – which is inevitably filtering through the Great Firewall – has apparently not excited a new tsunami of disgust against the Chinese Communist Party regime. The response seems to have been muddled by the fact that the article took pains not to implicate Wen Jiabao personally, and by the fact that Wen is regarded as a leader – albeit of suspect efficacy – of the reformist bloc, and giving him a black eye is considered as providing aid and comfort to the enemies of reform. The fact that Wen is retiring after the 18th party congress, to be started a few days from now, also takes some of the heat out of the allegations. There were even indignant accusations that the revelations had been fed to the Times by partisans of disgraced party official Bo Xilai seeking revenge on Wen for his role in Bo’s downfall earlier this year.
