Will China rule the world? Many have expressed doubt, but Martin Jacques, author of a bestseller on China issues, is firmly on the side of “yes.”
At a recent Beijing book reading to celebrate his release, the second edition of When China Rules the World, Jacques said he wondered why people are ignoring the rise of the new global powerhouse with a closed mind.
Although three years have passed since the book’s release, Jacques said he still believes China will shape the world as it continues to grow.
“I don’t see any reason to change (my conclusions) because as I finished the book, its development was speeding up,” he said.
