07.10.2019 : "Red China"

Within the history of "Red China" the first 25 years after the Civil War was the transformation of the traditional feudalistic Confucian rural society by Chairman Mao towards equality between male/female, rural/industrial areas and farmers/administration/leaders. The "label Red" was created by Chairman Mao - in analogy to the Sowjet Union - as the symbol for Communism.

The second 25 years of the China-innovation-cycle have been kicked-off by Chairman Deng and focused the improvement of productivity and competition in special economic zones like Shenzhen or Shanghai by capitalistic tools like individual incentives and profit optimization. China became attractive for foreign investments which helped also as a transmission towards higher technology-levels. The third leapfrogging 25 cycle finally started by Chairman Xi are high investments in the infrastructure (Belt and Road), Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT) speeding-up the industrialization process towards world-leadership. Due to the size of population and its GNP China will have a huge impact on the change of Asia - creating with its young generation a "Century of Asian Leadership" according to Prof.Dr.Bernd Hallier who visited China and other Asian countries many times since 1974.
