by China news reports Thursday, Mar. 01, 2007 at 2:30 PM

learn the deeper issues about globalization, China and world development

Timely book: China and the new world order:

How entrepreneurship, globalization and borderless business reshape China and the world

by George Zhibin Gu

Foreward by William Ratliff

Published by Fultus, October 2006, 248 pages.

China is the world's number-one growth story now. But how is

it that China has achieved such quick growth in this era? How is it that

made-in-China products can flood the globe? Is a trade war going to happen?

Or is a new world order in the making? This second volume of a trilogy-by

Chinese journalist/consultant George Zhibin Gu-aims to answer these

questions and more.

Today, more than a half-million overseas companies conduct business

inside China. Learn about all the opportunities this exploding market

presents, including banking, insurance, and stock market, as well as the

yuan and trade and cross-border business issues. Moreover, it contains

extensive studies on China's political-economic reform as well as evolving

international relations.

This volume addresses eight key topics:

I. China's New Role in the World Development

II. The Yuan, Trade, and Investment

III. China's Fast-Changing Society, Politics, and Economy (in light of

Chinese and global history)

IV. China's Banking, Insurance, and Stock Market Reforms

V. Chinese Multinationals vs. Global Giants

VI. The Taiwan Issue: Current Affairs and Trends (federation as an

alternate way for unity)

VII. India vs. China: Moving Ahead at the Same Time

VIII. The Japan-China Issue: Evolving Relations in Light of History

Today, all nations increasingly rely on one another for development, a

trend that will only strengthen as time passes. As a saying goes, "The

future is being shaped today." This book will appeal to readers everywhere

regardless of their particular interests. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Amazon reviews:

must read Rated by Joe Smoller [From CA, USA - 10/26/2006]

Arguably one of the most important books in the last 20 years. Hugely insightful and relevant on key China and global development and political-economic issues. Details this general picture: how China is walking away from a tight bureaucratic society and embracing an open, dynamic life under globalization and capitalism.

Offers huge insights on various key global issues like global job and manufacturing transfers, changing world politics, business, investment and trade trends. Also enormous info and analysis on geo-politics and geo-economics.

Furthermore, it offers comparative studies on America, China, Europe, Japan, and India. In particular, it claims that a federal system is the best choice for resolving the Taiwan issue.

Also vast info and analysis on Chinese multinationals, stock market, banking and insurance sectors. Its style and presentation is very simply and straightforward. Must read to understand the larger issues confronting China and the world.

The most important book I read in the last 5 years

This new book from Dr. George Zhibin Gu is a geo-economics and geopolitical masterpiece from an insider, someone that thrives his consulting work and daily life inside China, not writing or comment from a comfortable chair in London or New York paid by a western think tank, or only for academic proposals. His challenge is to write for a broad audience out of China. I must refer his clever suggestions about Taiwan - a political proposal for a a federation - and the way he sees the go global from Chinese emergent multinationals. It is needed a lot of courage for an insider to be so clear in his proposals and to identify the old Chinese problem - bureaucracy, the same that stopped admiral Cheng Ho and the Discoveries in the XV Century, that closed China for so many centuries and gave an opportunity for foreign powers to humiliate China, hyper-bureaucracy that in the Mao period pulled China for chaos and economic and social distress. China and the New World Order is a must reading. Jorge Nascimento Rodrigues, editor of www.gurusonline.tv and translator of Made in China (published in Portuguese language).

Is a new world order in the making?...It might just happen.

Base on the number of book in relation to this matter so far I believe that no one has come close to capturing "new China's" spirit and meaning as Gu. After reading his second volume I found it to be hugely insightful on the current events of China and global affairs. It greatly explores the key factors that shape Chinese and global development in the next stages. It gives tremendous info and analysis on the Chinese government, politics, business and economy for any one's interest.

There's a huge amount of info on foreign businesses inside China. You will be able to see about twenty five American and global multinationals inside of China that are studied. In the meantime it gives us a very provocative analysis on China's new role in the world. Gu details this general picture of how China is walking away from a practical society and embracing an open, restless and dynamic society. It claims that an overextended, self-appointed bureaucracy remains the key problem for China. To overcome countless technical barriers, greater openness, entrepreneurship and global involvement is all needed. Again, it's very insightful on the issues between China, Taiwan, Japan, India and West. I will add that his analyses on Japan-China line up are very interesting as well as Taiwan. There' a tremendous amount of info and analysis on China's financial, banking, insurance and stock market.

Author George Zhibin Gu is a very outspoken and a well known Chinese journalist who has generally covered mergers and acquisitions, capital activities, business expansion, and restructuring. He's an insider who gives us scrupulous examination on current China and global affairs which is more than a reason why you should grab hold to this book.



Insightful and Intelligent

George Gu provides a depth of understanding that distinguishes his work from most other business books. His wide network of contacts gives insight into emerging trends. He provides useful context that western authors often lack and Chinese authors frequently take for granted.

Prepare for the Dragon Market - Winston Ma, Author of "Investing in China: New Opportunities in a Transforming Stock Market

For the international investor community, "Investing in China" in the new century is more or less a one-way investment and capital flow. Mr. Gu's book, however, looks one step further to explore how all these interactions would reshape the global horizon, both for China and the rest of the world.

In fact, China's outward influence is increasingly obvious. For instance, whether China would diversify its foreign currency reserve -- and consequently whether China will enter into the gold market to hedge its US dollar exposure -- has profound implications in the global financial markets.

Comparing to many other books on China, Mr. Gu's book has a truly "authentic Chinese" flavor. The reason is obvious: He is an INSIDER. As a native Chinese, he captures the spirit of China's latest developments in its not-too-short historic context.
