When a Billion Chinese JumpHow China will save mankind – or destroy it
I find this a very interesting read. The title was inspired by the author’s childhood curiosity: What if all the Chinese in the world jump at the same time? Wouldn’t the world be shaken off its axis?The road journey took the author from the “Shangri-La” region in the southwest of China to city that is synonymous with the “Made in China” label, i.e., Guangdong, and then to the heartland of Chinese civilisation. From there he headed to the “new territory” of Xinjiang before he rounded off with his experiences in the industrial belt of the northeast.
