This is quite interesting video on how China economic developement. The speaker is a proffesor on China Business School. One thing that for me like to stress on his description on China as Totaliterian Decentralise System.
He talk on how Chinese region has abilities to used their own regional resources or even regulations to attract investment. China central govt encourage each region to develop on their own as long as still within national frame work.
Strong regional actually already happen since Imperial era. This also shown Xi as Supreme Leader need to balance the central with regional need. In short, just like old days, any Emperor that lose their provincial/regional lords support can also lose mandate of heaven (at present time CCP Polit Bureau).
Something shown that in sense China still China of old.
