Rise Of China

Martin Jacques the prominent (former) Marxist intellectual of the UK did a talk about China at TED. I like Martin Jacques so perhaps I'm splitting hairs over his mispronunciation of LENOVO in the talk but there is one point he makes about ignorance which is worth the the full 25 minutes. 

If you're reading this from the West and are more engaged with the goggle box for sports and know more about team members sex lives than any facts you care to choose about China then you may well be in for a surprise when the winds of cultural change unravel and blossom as quickly as they can.
