Adam Smith in Beijing

A new book by Giovanni Arrighi (a Sociology Professor) examines the role of China and the development of capitalism. The perspective of the left and right is considered.

This is not, as the title may have suggested a business economics text and economists will no doubt find the conclusions of the book full of holes. Holding China up as a leader of a "different way" is a sure fire way of getting shot down.
