Crikey says: the world leader you should know

Four more years. But a revolution? Guy Rundle reckons. Today, what it means -- for us and them. Here our pollies are busy politicising the public service. There's new jobs data out (they'll be politicised, too). And with a new energy white paper released, should we be talking nuclear power?

Meet the man about to take the helm of the country most important to Australia’s interests.

This is Xi Jinping. China’s Communist Party begins its 18th congress in Beijing today, and the party is expected to select Xi as its leader. That means he becomes Chinese president early next year.

    It’s difficult to engage with something so ineluctable. Understanding is pointless since it is malleable by processes beyond our reach.
    WHich is the way chinese prefer to do biz – it’s a transaction not a relationship. The latter is what one has with family.
