(CCU Faculty) Good morning from the People’s Republic of China. It is the beginning of 2011 here—It’s still the old year in the states. And since many a pundit is arguing that the future of the world is here it seems like a good idea to be writing my first blog of the year from this location. China is, indeed, booming. The signs of growth are everywhere: endless office and apartment buildings being built to the sky. Bustling, booming cities. Brand, spanking new airports built to impress the world.
