9:41 am
a century. even today it's difficult to understand the paranoia ignited by mouse revolution. as we look at china on the map we can see that china is the basic cause of all of our troubles in asia i believe that for the sake of fish. if you need. to be prepared for the puppy beneath. a shiny new me at the on the united way. one of the myths about mao is that he was an implacable enemy of the capitalist west.
9:42 am
shanghai today is a prosperous international city still run by the communists at least. when i was last in china more than a generation ago the loudest noise was the tinkling of bicycle bells now just the streets were dark the universities were closed the chaos of the cultural revolution had given way to a great silence where exhausted was the freest comment. coming back the change was barely comprehensible. here in shanghai the freedom bears no comparison yes there are issues with human rights especially the right to speak against the state and challenge its power since i was last here millions of people
9:43 am
of been lifted out of poverty many of them into an entirely new middle class this epic is still barely understood in the west or should there be wilfully misunderstood the truth is that china has matched america at cern great game of capitalism and that is on forgivable. one measure of china's new capitalism is the run ritualised this league table of china's mega rich has published by rupert hogan warthe an old attorney and his chinese name as her run he's received many awards including china's man of the year this year two thousand and fifteen it's probably been the most extraordinary year of wealth creation in the history of china again in i've been doing this list of fifteen sixteen years i've never seen
9:44 am
a year like two thousand and fifteen in it normally for two hundred million pounds or three hundred million dollars we find say eight hundred thousand people this year two thousand and fifteen is it's doubled they'll be more dollar billionaires known in china than in the u.s. so the u.s. up until now has been the leader in terms of business. you know the most successful business tycoons in the world. china two thousand and fifteen with their take in the usa amazing. modern china is full of telling irony is not released this museum that was once the house where mounties comrades secretly found of the communist party of china in one nine hundred twenty one.
9:45 am
today it stands in the heart of an exclusive fairy capitalist shopping district. when you leave the shrine to china's great revolution you are confronted by a surreal spectacle for right outside where the chinese communist party it was bone of the very symbols of capitalism stocks apple caught here. and down there perhaps the free market is greatest triumph bottled water but in shoals you live young costing six pounds for a small bottle in my hotel. now spin and his tune if he was here i'm not so sure hidden history is always a key to the truth five years before his great communist revolution in one hundred forty nine mts sent this secret message to washington china must industrialize
9:46 am
wrote. this can only be done by free enterprise chinese and american interests fit together economically and politically america need not fear that we will not be cooperative we cannot risk crossing america we cannot risk any conflict. mal received no reply. nothing has changed. mouse a tongue was looking to be a friend with the united states from the beginning mouse says i will go meet franklin roosevelt in the white house moll reaches out nine hundred fifty to harry truman he reaches out to dwight eisenhower is hand was tossed away. this old. paternity that might have changed history prevented was saved countless
9:47 am
lives was lost because the truth of miles over true as was denied in the washington of the one nine hundred fifty s. . state department officials who had carried mao's messages were condemned done justly as communist traitors. everybody who knew me who spoke cheney's was gone in the one nine hundred fifty s. the state department had no employees who spoke chaney it's resulted in us not having relations with the number one most populous country in the world in one thousand nine hundred seventy nine this man dying paying became china's paramount leda he said socialism does not mean shared poverty. this was code for the most radical reform since miles revolution. the return
9:48 am
of capitalism to china but this time controlled by the communist party. to be riches glorious dane was reported as saying. america was now threatened by the emergence of a vast image of itself. this is one of the many very exclusive gated communities in shanghai where an apartment is one of the prices of the new communism. i had a range to see professor zion way way a close aide to the late things paying the man who changed china. though in. really extremely. long term visionary leader we exceed the long turn strategic vision for his country
9:49 am
for his people that chinese do you follow that path you know they're true this is really a tradition from china's long history you look at even like mon he said we should suppose you could. supply. so they could didn't used to this. actually or many chinese have problems with the western media is this theory about china if you. contend with fear of hypes you missed so many things in the if b.b.c. broadcast something they're happy to always mention this comment is to dictatorship this autocracy not actually with this label you cannot understand this china as it is but if you watch b.b.c. c.n.n.
9:50 am
or read economist and try to understand china it will be a failure it's impossible. multiple parties fight for political power and everyone voting on them is the only path to salvation for the long suffering that's. a shanghai entrepreneur educated in america and typical of a new confident outspoken political class in china there are a lot of problems but at the moment the chinese the party state has. an extraordinary ability to change me i make the joke. in america you can change political parties but you can't change policies. in china you cannot change the party but you can change policies. so in a sixty five or sixty six years china is being run by one single party yet. the
9:51 am
political changes that have taken place in china in the past sixty six years have been wider and broader and greater than probably any other major country in modern memory so in that time china seems to be communist patrol so well china is a market economy and survivor a market economy but it is not a capitalist country here's why there is no way a group of billionaires could control the politburo. the owners control american policymaking so in china you have a vibrant market economy but capital does not rise above political authority capital is not does not have in trying rights in america capital the interest of capital and capital itself has risen above the name of the american nation the political authority cannot check the power of capital and
9:52 am
that's why america is a catalyst country but china is not this is the ironic title of a bestselling book by zhang leisure a journalist and critic who lives in beijing many americans imagine that the chinese people live miserable repressed her life these no freedom western ever that's not quite sure if you toss speak to many ordinary chinese people they will tell you that they feel that their life i quite free some five hundred million people being lifted off the poverty in some would say probably six hundred million people that's a great achievement. for many americans the yellow peril has never left and i think of the there's the fear about china of course there's the fear for china as a rapid rise but is also has
9:53 am
a lot to do. with china's their label as communists and states china subject of some modest compare where their weight they're not trying to run the world they're not even trying to run asia pacific i think they want to keep america from dominating the asia pacific so they have what they believe is their rightful place in asia pacific because alonso was asian long history in their size so their objectives are really modest compared with their capacity the world for new wealth in china and i often say this is this is the product of so far made entrepreneur skill but is it not also the product of the exploitation of people at the bottom what are known in china as migrants but they're not really migrants. if you really.
9:54 am
go to port to this my woodworkers you will find quite surprisingly. over the past five to seven years they have experienced. greater increase there in the social groups china not a car society. but china is a class society. these are the homes of migrant workers people who build and service the new china. here it's not uncommon for three families to share one tiny flat. you know you would get a socialist country wheezy quality but i'm fortunately since the reform has started
9:55 am
china has become one of the most unequal societies in the word the income gap is widening governments i feel have retreated some of the responsibility left the markets to takeover by the market does not always treat women kindly. private companies they would just rethink is too high and challenged bearing age women and sometimes when women become pregnant they were thanked them because they don't want to pay their matelote leave and in fact income gap has grown much bigger between men one and your old boss funk presided over the bloodshed and tear them square what would you say to the survivors of tiananmen square because so many of those did fight for what very saw as democratic change in china. in one thousand eight hundred nine
9:56 am
