Cheng Li Quoted in Reuters
China expert and professor of government Cheng Li was quoted in a Reuters article about China’s Fourth generation. This generation of China’s political leaders was among tens of millions of China’s “sent-down” youths and banished cadres of the 1966-76 Cultural Revolution who met grim rural realities, a violent ideological climate and bitter disillusionment. “This event was a catastrophe for the nation but could be an asset for an individual’s growth,” said Li. He defines the forth generation as those party officials born between 1941 and 1956.

"A lot of this is all about expectations and psychology and not much more than that," Wu said about the interrelationship between low consumer confidence and the Dow Jones industrial average closing lows and vice versa. "Publicly traded companies often raise money to invest in their operations by selling new issues of their own shares. But when the market is as poor as it is now, that becomes a less attractive option," said Bradfield.
