The nice people at Link Asia ran an interview with me looking into China’s urbanization plans. While it’s clear that I have a lot to learn about appearing on TV (sitting too close to the camera and nodding incessantly among other sins), I conveyed most of what I wanted to get across about my thoughts on China’s cities.
Clearly, I’m skeptical that the urbanization plan will change everything. I’m aware of status quo bias, but betting on the status quo–on the Party continuing to muddle–along seems the safest bet for the regime at this time. Let me know what you think.
