Mastering Megatrends


In today’s digital world, information is accessible to almost everyone. But information reaches from facts to opinions, it is informative or intentional, intellectual or populist, spread by humans or algorithms.

Once spread, it falls on different grounds: on open and biased mindsets with culturally and geographically diverse attitudes.  Factfinding barriers like mass media, echo chambers and prejudice may block us from spotting opportunities and blindsight us towards endangerments.

While Megatrends are more accessible than ever, we tend rebuff information that jeopardizes our own expectations. Mastering Megatrends offers guidelines to take down internal and external barriers of understanding and leveraging on the prospects of the coming decade.

China´s Megatrends



China has become a major global player in both the political and the economic areas. But despite the transformation China has undergone in last decades the West still hangs on to an obsolete picture of China.

While China is increasingly self confident and self sufficient, the West links a sustainable future of China to the degree to which China adopts Western values and practices. But China is creating a political counter-model to Western modern democracy fitting to Chinese history and society just as America created a model fitting to its collective histories, societies and values more than 200 years ago.

China is creating an entirely new social and economic system. It has reinvented itself as if it were a huge enterprise, developing a “company culture” which fits the demands of the enterprise and its people on the path to modernity and wealth. Economically and politically China has left the path of imitation, determined to become the innovation country of the world. In the next decades China will not only change the global economy, it will challenge Western democracy with its own model.

With an inside out approach, China’s Megatrends describes the “eight pillars” which built the foundation on which China changed from a nation of poverty and backwardness to become the second largest economy of the world, beating Germany as export champion, and challenging America as the most competitive nation.

The China Model



There is almost no one who does not have an opinion about China. In the West mainstream opinions are built on The Good Earth, The last Emperor, Seven Years in Tibet, and daily stories in magazines and newspapers which report almost solely negative news about China. There is also the Western picture of Chinese politicians: stiff, stern and inaccessible and hardly willing for open dialogue.

The China Model proves this opinion obsolete. It is an open dialogue between the Chinese long-time leader Zhao Quizheng and the authors John and Doris Naisbitt touching economic, social and political subjects, an unlimited discussion about China’s past, future and present, albeit not driven by a wish to erect walls, but to build bridges.

How to Get to Where You Want to Go



Today China’s youth has more choices than ever before in Chinese history. But that choice comes with competition and pressure to perform.

In talks to students all over China the question most asked is: “How can I find out who I am and what I really want if I have to dedicate all my time to tests and exams?”

Intense communication with students, teachers and parents became the base of the stories and life examples collected in this book, which first were published as a column in China Youth Daily for three years.
