I find it difficult sometimes to keep track of Chinese power politics. Now the Brookings Institution has provided us with a lovely, succinct 2-3 minute video analysis of the two new top leaders (Shanghai Party Secretary Xi Jinping and Liaoning Party Secretary Li Keqiang) who were recently promoted as possible successors to President Hu Jintao, at the 17th Party Congress in October. The speaker is Cheng Li, a Senior Fellow at the Institution’s John L. Thornton China Center. If you’re like me, you might enjoy it!
