Dongguan Evidently Has Changed

I often hear from my friends that Dongguan has changed dramatically since I was last there.  A couple of articles this week, caught my interests on this subject:

Dongguan: the nightmare flip side to China's economic dream  - see that number of 70,000 factories shut down recently.

Xi Jinping’s Trump Moment - Wall Street Journal's interesting article, with several comparisons, such as Dongguan to Lowell, Massachusetts, and Xi Jinping to Donald Trump.  I don't necessarily agree with many of the conclusions offered, but the challenges are certainly highlighted for China and the USA.

Good luck, my friends, on both sides of the Pacific.
