Alibaba puts China on par with the United States in the rapidly increasing global competition for technological innovation and economic transformation. The GSK case reminds me of a popular book "China Can Say No," first published in China in 1996 and which signaled a new era for growing Chinese nationalism.

Households Need Fair Share of China's Growth

The global debate has focused on the rising inequality across individuals. But a different form of inequality has emerged in China -- the inequality between the household on the one hand, and the corporate sector and government on the other. For decades, China has been one of the fastest growing countries in the world, lifting hundreds of millions of people out of poverty. At a time when industrialized economies have seen greater inequality within countries, China's accumulation of wealth has contributed to a significant decline in global inequality. But exactly how much of the benefits of that growth has accrued to its rightful owners -- the Chinese households, the bedrock of society? Thus, the most pressing challenge for China's economic model is to release greater resources available for households.

China: Slower Growth, but a Bigger Economy

A bigger but somewhat slower growing China of the future will contribute about as much to global demand as the smaller but faster growing China of before. This is arithmetic: An economy that is twice as big can grow by half as much and contribute the same to global demand. By the way, China today is more than twice as big as it was a decade ago. So, the good news is, even with slower growth, China will continue to be an engine of global output. Indeed, an even bigger engine than before.

China's growth is widely expected to slow further in the second half of 2012. As it does, the new and old guards of China's leadership will be hard-pressed to reassure the Chinese public that their way remains the best way.
