Abstract In China, they're called the "tigers and flies," the powerful leaders and lowly officials all targeted by China's corruption crackdown. Less than a year into his term, President Xi Jinping has made fighting graft one of his priorities, vowing to punish every corrupt official, and to make no exceptions. And under his leadership, Beijing has even made a point of addressing seemingly trivial excess, limiting banquets to "four courses and one soup" and banning the use of public funds to buy moon cakes. In this month's On China, we examine why corruption is prevalent at all levels of Chinese society, discuss the reasons behind Xi's anti-corruption campaign, and explore whether it's even possible to root out corruption in China and the Communist Party. Joining us at the table are Reuters' Beijing-based correspondent Benjamin Lim, China scholar Willy Lam, and author and social commentator Lijia Zhang.
