My fascination with China grows steadily. Today it's all about the future city of Dongtan. The plan is to make "the first self-sustaining city environment in the world". The Chinese seem to have a firm grasp on the "image thing" when it comes to their national agenda. I'm just going to have to go there soon and see it for myself!

I suspect it's rather inevitable that China's economy, people and culture are going to dictate much of the coming decades. Chief among their saavy moves is the winner's circle they've secured as we race to erase market boundaries and bargain shop our standard of living steadily downward.
