China: Zhou Qiang set for Politburo despite Li Wangyang scandal

“I can’t remember a single story about a personal trait that is interesting enough to warrant circulation,” the source said.

The Mitt Romney of China?

Zhou studied at the Southwest University of Political Science and Law in Chongqing , receiving a master’s degree in law, and then worked in the Ministry of Justice. Between 1993 and 1995 he was secretary to then justice minister, Xiao Yang , an open-minded official who later became president of the Supreme People’s Court.

Probably a generation before would have gone to the U.S. to receive a master’s degree in law. I wonder how significant it is that the new leaders are “home-grown”?

At least a part of the American corporate love affair (besides authoritarianism) with Chinese leaders has been where they were educated (many in the U.S.).
