Is China the new idol for emerging economies?

Is China the new idol for emerging economies? | Connected Curation | Scoop.it
The developed world holds up the ideals of capitalism, democracy and political rights for all. Those in emerging markets often don't have that luxury. In this powerful talk, economist Dambisa Moyo makes the case that the west can't afford to rest on its laurels and imagine others will blindly follow. Instead, a different model, embodied by China, is increasingly appealing. A call for open-minded political and economic cooperation in the name of transforming the world.
systerwoody's insight:

Impressive. D.Moyo is an award winning author/economist who advocates for a return to Hayek's view of economic development.
