Will the 21st century be the Chinese century? Economics correspondent Paul Solman examines the rise of China as a global economic power and the challenges that lie before it in this timely collection of NewsHour reports.

The episodes are: 

  • China's Growing Economy: This segment spotlights the freewheeling Chinese economy and its growing pains
  • The Chinese Consumer: This segment seeks to understand Chinese consumers and how both Wal-Mart and high-end boutiques are catering to them
  • The Cult of Mao Zedong: This segment illustrates how the idealism and enthusiasm of the early Mao years is influencing China's emerging free market economy
  • Misinvestment in China: This segment sheds light on the Chinese government's notably opaque investment practices and the failing Shanghai Stock Exchange
  • Interview with Cheng Siwei: In this segment, China's "father of venture capital" speaks on economic relations with the U.S., foreign investment, textile exports, and the revaluation of the yuan
  • Piracy Explored: This segment investigates piracy of foreign intellectual property rights in China, using Viagra as a case in point
  • Bumps in the Road?: This segment seriously questions whether China's economy can continue to grow at its incredible pace without major political reform

“As a teaching tool, the seven episodes offer considerable background on the Chinese economy and a number of intriguing points to spark discussion. Recommended.”—Educational Media Reviews Online
