With less than two weeks to go before the 18th Party Congress, speculation on China's upcoming leadership transition could not be more intense here in Beijing, where insiders are trading lists of potential Politburo Standing Committee members which disagree not only on who will be elevated to the highest ranks of China's leadership, but even how many members will be on the PBSC.
How are things going to play out in the during the Party Congress and in the coming transition? Joining Kaiser Kuo and Jeremy Goldkorn
this week for an insider look at China's upcoming leadership transition are three guests we are delighted to have here on Sinica: journalist and author John Garnaut
from the Sydney Morning Herald, popular blogger and Tsinghua business professor Patrick Chovanec
, and Jamil Anderlini
who heads the Beijing bureau for the Financial Times. We think you'll enjoy what all three have to say.
