China´s changing course and sustainable success requires a shift in strategy The End of Copycat China helps business executives and investors understand how China´s economy is shifting from one based on heavy investment to one based on services and consumption by providing insight that helps shape effective strategy. Drawing from more than 50,000 interviews with entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, private equity investors, private Chinese companies, and multinationals, this book describes how Chinese firms are increasingly focused on innovation rather than copying what worked in America and how consumers are evolving with their hopes, dreams, and aspirations. China´s growth model of the last three decades is becoming increasingly ineffective, as relying on heavy investment and exports is becoming less and less feasible. Fifty percent of China´s growth in 2013 stemmed from consumption, and the government is establishing a free-trade zone in Shanghai and ending the dominance of state-owned enterprises. This book provides a road map for companies and investors looking to navigate these changes and capture emerging trends, with deep insight and practical guidance on what innovation looks like in the new China. Survey the development of innovation taking place in China´s economy from an insider´s perspective Consider the changes that must take place to shore up the broken growth model Examine the consumer trends emerging in the midst of rapid market evolution Understand how China´s rise will impact its neighbors like Japan, Vietnam, Indonesia, and Cambodia China´s dramatic shift toward consumption presents a tremendous opportunity for foreign business, but traditional tactics are outdated at best, financially fatal at worst, as local competitors focus on innovation and move up the value chain and as consumers look for new brands and categories on which to spend money.

China´s Economy: What Everyone Needs to Know® is a concise introduction to the most astonishing economic growth story of the last three decades. In the 1980s, China was an impoverished backwater, struggling to escape the political turmoil and economic mismanagement of the Mao era. Today it is the world´s second biggest economy, the largest manufacturing and trading nation, the consumer of half the world´s steel and coal, the biggest source of international tourists, and one of the most influential investors in developing countries from southeast Asia to Africa to Latin America. China´s growth has lifted 700 million people out of poverty. It has also created a monumental environmental mess, with smog-blanketed cities and carbon emissions that are a leading cause of climate change. Multinational companies make billions of dollars in profits in China each year, but traders around the world shudder at every gyration of the country´s unruly stock markets. Most surprising of all, its capitalist economy is governed by an authoritarian Communist Party that shows no sign of loosening its grip.How did China grow so fast for so long? Can it keep growing and still solve its problems of environmental damage, fast-rising debt, and rampant corruption? How long can its vibrant economy co-exist with the repressive one-party state? What do China´s changes mean for the rest of the world? China´s Economy: What Everyone Needs to Know® answers these questions in straightforward language that you don´t need to be an economist to understand, but with a wealth of detail drawn from academic research, interviews with dozens of company executives and policy makers, and a quarter-century of personal experience.Whether you´re doing business in China, negotiating with its government officials, or a student trying to navigate the complexities of this fascinating and diverse country, this is the one book that will tell you everything you need to know about 1.

Since Marco Polo, the West has waited for the ´´Asian Century´´. Today the world believes that century has arrived. Yet from China´s slumping economy to war clouds over the South China Sea and from environmental devastation to demographic crisis, Asia´s future is increasingly uncertain. Historian and geopolitical expert Michael Auslin argues that far from being a cohesive powerhouse, Asia is a fractured region threatened by stagnation and instability. Here he provides a comprehensive account of the economic, military, political, and demographic risks that bedevil half of our world, arguing that Asia, working with the United States, has a unique opportunity to avert catastrophe - but only if it acts boldly. Bringing together firsthand observations and decades of research, Auslin´s provocative reassessment of Asia´s future will be a must-listen for industry and investors, as well as politicians and scholars, for years to come. 1.
