About 1,000 authors and publishers participated in the Eric Hoffer Book Award this year. The Chinese Dream has endured rigorous judging and received the highest distinction of Eric Hoffer Book Award in the business book category.
There are fourteen categories under the Eric Hoffer Book Award, including fiction, poetry, memoir, and so on.
According to the letter I received from The Eric Hoffer Award, "each winner was determined to be unique, worthy, and well produced in all aspects of writing and publishing."
This week, CNNMoney is running a series of articles about China. I was interviewed on the topic of China's growing middle class. It is a good thing that mainstream media has started to pay more attention to China.
Among the series, an article "US Companies Betting Big in China" showcased some of the most successful US companies in China:
Apple's sales in China reached $12 billion in 2011
KFC, Pizza Hut, and Taco bell opened 656 new restaurants in China last year alone
Boeing predicts China's aircraft market will generate $200 billion revenue
While multinationals have made significant inroads to China, small and medium sized companies face entry barriers due to lack of resources. To address this problem, I will launch seminars later this year to help small and medium sized companies to take advantage of China's growing market. Stay tune!
In this three minute vedio, Stephen Roach, a professor at Yale University and former nonexecutive chairman of Morgan Stanley Asia, summarized one of the key points of my book The Chinese Dream:
China is well on its way to "create a consumption dynamic that will outstrip the growth of any consumer market in the world,” how the U. S. should embrace the opportunity, and why improving the China–US bilateral relationship is so critical for the economic future of both countries.
