China's new leaders crack down

Decisions to send Bo Xilai to trial, audit local government debt and curb state-owned enterprise credit show China’s new leaders are getting serious about reform.

These have been continuing to crack down on corruption and abuse of Party power and privilege, addressing municipal indebtedness, and correcting some of the imbalances created by state-owned enterprises’ easy access to credit (which has resulted in overcapacity in key industries).
