Wen’s Glass Half-Empty

The China a timorous world sees is so different from the one a timorous China sees. Prime Minister Wen Jiabao’s annual government work report to the National People’s Congress laid out a raft of serious problems threatening the country’s stability as it gets ever nearer to the transition to the next generation of leaders: inflation, a wealth gap, over-reliance on investment rather than domestic consumption for economic growth, paucity of technical innovation,a polluted environmental, shortfalls in education and healthcare, inadequate food safety and official corruption.

Fortunately, there is a five-year plan for that.
