Early end to the Chinese century?

Author, lawyer and television pundit Gordon Chang will discuss at a talk in Taipei on Sunday why he thinks China’s economy will eventually crumble

By Dana Ter  /  Staff reporter

Chang maintains that if China is to avoid an economic crash, it has to grow faster and reform. The problem, he says, is that “further reform would threaten the Communist Party’s hold on power, so it will not sponsor change of that sort.”

Chang adds that “the Chinese economy has gone just about as far as it can within the confines of the Communist Party’s framework.”
