Abstract What forces drove Chinese capitalism forward and enabled a generation of innovators and business leaders to emerge? Can the tragedy of Tiananmen Square be understood in terms of China's economic, rather than political, development? What is Deng Xiaoping's legacy today? This program addresses those questions as it explores the maturation and impact of Deng's policies. Interviewees include Chen Yizi, a former government economic adviser; Wan Runnan, founder of Sitong Electronics-which, like many other Chinese companies, flourished under Deng's reforms; Dr. Michael Marti, author of China and the Legacy of Deng Xiaoping: From Communist Revolution to Capitalist Evolution; and many others.
