It is immediately apparent to any visitor that Beijing is a mammoth city, and the city planning and administration is nothing short of miraculous. The same may also be said of Shanghai. All indications are that China is moving more towards the once successful western model by delegating large authority to provincial managers, keeping corporate taxes on business low and developing policies that stimulate jobs and the entrepreneurial spirit. But the enormous population of China still demands large central government oversight. All this progress occurs in the east while the west is moving towards higher taxes on business, and business and economic control policies, which actually discourage investment and entrepreneurialism. Even in the health care in China is moving ahead of the west, requiring responsibility on the part of individuals to contribute to their health care expenses.
