Jeremy Goldkorn

The first post-Chinese New Year weeks proved to be busy ones, also in the activities of our speakers. While we have no real surprises in our February top-10 (we skipped January because of Chinese New Year), a few people moved fast up, as they were asked by mainstream media to comment on current affairs. Jeremy Goldkorn on no.3 is the fastest-rising speaker on our list, as the authorities are moving to curtail the social media.

The coming months are going to be hectic too, as a few speakers – including Shaun Rein’sThe End of Cheap China: Economic and Cultural Trends that will Disrupt the World” will hit the book shelves, China’s is preparing for the next phase of a leadership transition, after the high-profile visits by upcoming president Xi Jinping to the US and Ireland. And Europe, to a large degree in vain, keeps on looking if China’s financial authorities are going to give them a helping hand in their ongoing crisis.

Much to look forward to, but first, we take a step back with
