Abstract In little more than two decades, China made a leap of industrialization comparable to what took the U.S. a century. This program uses the experiences of entrepreneur Guo Guangchang-called one of China's 100 Richest Business People by Forbes-as a springboard to explore that nation's prospects as the awakened dragon ascends. A grassroots shift toward democratic structures, a new definition of education that promotes individual thought and responsibility, the wealth disparity between the coastal economies and interior provinces, and whether a modernized and prosperous China is ever likely to adopt liberal political and social structures are addressed.
