Sharon Wood tells us the story about Xi Jinping, China’s new president, who has been audacious enough to raise the hopes of his people promising them a better life. He promises change, in his words “to kill the tigers and swat the flies”, and to bring fairness and transparency to a country riddled with corruption, nepotism, and all the social ills that are China. Sharon knows her topic. She was born in China, fled the country as a child only to return as an executive for Chinese global organization. She is witnessing first hand, the changes President Xi Jinping is delivering to her country. He has turned her from being skeptical of change to seeing the possibility that change is achievable in China.
