    China must reform or die

    ''The secret of US success is neither Wall Street nor Silicon Valley, but its long-surviving rule of law and the system behind it,'' he says. ''The American system is said to be 'designed by genius and for the operation of the stupid'.

    China faces huge problems. A growing uneasy relationship between capitalist forces and communist, environmental problems many times worse than the US, and a shortage of energy to power it's economy are just the beginning.
