China’s Tech Crackdown – 31.08

  • A sweeping regulatory crackdown is underway in China, now expanding to target many of the country’s most successful private sector firms, from tech giants to tutoring companies. While a thriving private sector has helped power China’s rapid economic rise, Chinese President Xi Jinping now seems determined to rein in what he sees as its uncontrolled excesses. At the same time, new restrictions on overseas listings signal China’s intention to remove its tech giants from foreign scrutiny on national security grounds. Is this campaign transitory, or a game-changing shift in Xi’s economic and political strategy?

O ”Școală de Xiconomie” va fi înființată la Beijing – RFI, 9.07

  • Teoriile „se învârt în jurul a două obiective principale: căutarea independenței economice și orientarea către o creștere calitativă”, explică Jean-François Dufour.
  • Pe de o parte este vorba despre a dezvolta propriile filiere de producție pentru a reduce nevoia de a importa componente din străinătate, dezvoltând în același timp consumul intern pentru a nu mai fi o țară care prosperă doar prin exporturi.
  • Pe de altă parte, pentru o creștere „calitativă”, este nevoie ca producătorii chinezi să devină campioni în sectoarele „high tech” și să fie în fruntea economiei „verzi”.

Creşterea populaţiei Chinei în ultimul deceniu, la cel mai scăzut nivel din toate timpurile – 11.05

China’s competition for living space – DW, 30.05

  • More than 60 percent of China’s population of 1.4 billion currently lives in cities. Within a decade, the share of urban dwellers is expected to increase to 75 percent. Construction is booming and competition for residential land is fierce.
  • But the right to live in a city in China is conditional. Authorities want their modern cities to be peopled with well-educated, highly-qualified or politically well-connected residents. As a result, certain standards have to be met to be eligible for a modern, urban home. Only members of China’s political classes and the financially successful have a hope of qualifying. Yet more than half of the people who live in cities are so-called “migrant workers.” They come from rural communities and have no official rights to settle in cities. They are there to work. With no proper rights, they are merely tolerated while they serve as merchants, servants, waitstaff, cleaners, construction workers and tradespeople. But while they are indispensable to daily life in the cities, they are unable to afford their exorbitant rents. This documentary looks at how and where these workers live, and asks whether middle and working class Chinese even figure in the official vision of shiny, high-tech cities. The filmmakers also look at what happens to those who oppose official plans, or stand in the way of the building boom.
