"Nick Lardy is one of the world’s leading experts on the Chinese economy. This book is critical reading for anyone trying to gauge China’s economic prospects."
——Robert Rubin, former US Treasury Secretary and cochairman of the Council on Foreign Relations

——Robert B. Zoellick, former World Bank President, US Trade Representative, and US Deputy Secretary of State
