Niall Ferguson on China's Fatal Flaw
Posted by Gordon Smith

Here's a fascinating interview with Niall Ferguson. I was particularly interested in his comments a la Douglass North crediting the rule of law with the success of Western economic powers and asserting that China must fundamentally change its legal system or fail. It's not a novel point, but it sounds wonderful in Ferguson's accent. If you don't have time for the whole thing, start at 19:07.
