 Martin Jacques is the author of “When China Rules the World,” and a columnist for the Guardian and New Statesman. He was a co-founder of the think tank Demos.

This is one idea definitely worth sharing from TED.

What makes China tick?

Speaking at a TED Salon in London 2010, economist Martin Jacques asks: How do we in the West make sense of China and its phenomenal rise? The author of “When China Rules the World,” he examines why the West often puzzles over the growing power of the Chinese economy, and offers three building blocks for understanding what China is and will become.

Wonderful insight! Great lecture!


“China is not like the West, and it will not become like the West as its economy expands over the next decade.”

“This is China , a civilization state rather than a nation state.”


Economist Martin Jacques, author of When China Rules the World, explores why those in the West have trouble understanding China ’s growing power.

    Dear brother…..indeed most of what TED presented are real. A civilisation nation vs a United States. TED could have gone further about the immense energy level of Chinese people to prosper from poverty and drive to be better. I dont agree with his comments about how the Hans are intolerant to race like the Ughurs and Tibetan ( an inclusion to support western views and separatist activties ). While Western Govts are losing credibility, the Chinese is learning and helping its nation develop to meet the people’s desire for better future.

  2. An outstanding share! I’ve just forwarded this onto a friend who has been conducting a little
    research on this. And he actually bought me breakfast due to the fact that
    I stumbled upon it for him… lol. So allow me to reword this….

    Thank YOU for the meal!! But yeah, thanx for spending some time to discuss this matter here on your blog.
