Streaming Video - 2012
Rate this:
This program seeks to understand how the Chinese government, arguably the world's most elaborate and long-lived bureaucracy, has managed to balance the tension between controlling its people and keeping them contented enough to sustain national stability. Events unfolding at the village level in Sichuan Province demonstrate the dynamics of an evolving system of rule modeled on Marxism and informed by the legacies of Qin Shihuangdi and Confucius. Can the centralized command and control system first established so long ago continue to sustain China as it moves toward a market-style economy?
