China must end its economic apartheid

South Africa's staggering economic growth under its apartheid regime bears an eerie similarity to the China of today. If China is to succeed, it must draw some lessons from South Africa's experience.

While the world mourns the passing of Nelson Mandela, one of China’s most influential liberal thinkers Qin Xiao is drawing lessons for his own country from South Africa’s experience.

Some in China regard the African republic as a dismal failure. The country is still mired in poverty, inequality and disease nearly two decades after the first all-race election in 1994 that ended the apartheid regime.
