From their website:
While our economy is shrinking, China’s keeps growing. Is “Commi-Capitalism” winning? Based on first-hand reporting from China during frequent visits in the last several years, author Loretta Napoleoni argues that China is redefining the modern economy, and that politics must rule economics. Highlighting China’s focus on economic opportunity and the fair distribution of wealth and prosperity rather than the Western emphasis on voting, Maonomics raises the provocative question: Are we witnessing the beginning of the collapse of capitalism (at least as we know it) and the victory of “communism with a profit motive”?
