    Perhaps it is not a business story, but the increase in protests driven by events that are government/business-influenced, and the degree of knowledge of them outside of China is significant, such as Wukan.

    Also the need to crack down on twitter-like applications.

    Finally, one less talked about, growth of the unregulated Protestant congregations, and a seeming lessening of the level of persecution going on. But my knowledge is fuzzy on all of these,

    Thanks for blogging. I learn a lot from you.

    Happy new year professor.

    Seems like your China-housing views are being echoed/quoted all over the blogosphere (chinalawblog, chinabystander) – 2012 probably isn’t going to an easy year for China (well to be honest, any large economy).

    For a grossly undevalued currency an appreciation of 5% in a full year ONLY indicates the extent to which the renminbi is manipulated. The Chinese are cheats. Read “Death by China” by Peter Navarro.

    “China’s 45% income tax rate”

    This is misleading. This the highest rate of a highly tiered system, and there are generous expense allowances, often including home rent (though IANAL).
