China's Innovation Paradox
Chan, Jeremy
Perspectives: Policy and Practice in Higher Education, v19 n1 p23-27 2015
China aims to become an innovation-led nation by 2020, but its leadership is generally sceptical--and oftentimes hostile--to the market forces, open exchange of ideas, and creative destruction that have unlocked innovation in other countries.
