520 "Twenty years ago, seemingly everything for sale at
American retailers had a "Made In China" sticker on it.
Now, things have changed. Every year, forty thousand
Chinese factories are shuttering their doors as businesses
seek cheaper labor elsewhere. Clothes manufacturing is
moving to Bangladesh and Vietnam, for example, and shoes
to Ethiopia. The exodus is well underway. Even as American
commentators fret over "rising China," the real threat
lies in a virtually unknown story: that of a nation
struggling amid a profound economic transition away from
manufacturing. The culprit? Profound inequality and the
lack of investment in the people of the most populous
place on earth. Health and education are the grave
challenges for the country's future-and the world. Far
from the prospect of global takeover, a China newly adrift
has the potential to be our most unpredictable security
challenge in the next decades. This book, a warning from
Scott Rozelle and Natalie Hell, cuts through the false
alarmism while layingout an ambitious plan to correct
course before it's too late"--|cProvided by publisher.
