From the press release:
China’s growth model of the last three decades is broken — it can no longer rely on heavy investment and exports for economic growth. In 2013, 50% of China’s economic growth was due to an increase in consumption. The Chinese government is furthering this shift by establishing a Free Trade Zone in Shanghai and ending the dominance of state-owned enterprises. The End of Copycat China will track these developments and the challenges and opportunities that they present for businesses and investors. The book draw from over 50,000 interviews, conducted by Rein’s firm, with entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, private equity investors, as well as senior executives at state-owned enterprises, private Chinese companies, and multinationals operating in the market to capture emerging trends and outline the strategic adjustments companies will need to make to remain competitive in the coming years.
