Halper, Stefan, The Beijing Consensus: How China's Authoritarian Model Will Dominate the Twenty-First Century (New York: Basic Books, 2010) ("But in ideational terms, China is exporting something simpler, and indeed more corrosive to Western preeminence, than the individual nuts and bolts of its colossal thirty-year transformation. This is the basic idea of market authoritarianism. Beyond everything else that China sells to the world, it functions as the world's largest billboard advertisement for the new alternative of 'going capitalist and staying autocratic.' Beijing has provided the world's most compelling, high-speed demonstration of how to liberalize economically without surrendering to liberal politics. Officials and leaders now travel to China from seemingly every quarter of the globe beyond North America and Europe--Southeast Asia, the Middle East, Central Asia, sub-Saharan Africa, and Latin America--to learn from the Chinese about how to disaggregate economic and political freedom. . . ." Id. at 32-33. "If the magic of American leadership has faded, says French minister of foreign affairs, Bernard Kouchner, there's a very material reality to this observation: 'You want modern transportation systems? Try France or Japan. New airports? Half the cities of Asia.' . . . " Id. at 40. "Unless China and India suffer outbreaks of serious military conflagration or a calamitous domestic crisis, they will become the world's largest economies in the middle of this century. The potential size of their markets, their endless supply of low-cost labor, the unique combination of many highly skilled but low-paid professionals, and the investment incentives offered by their governments make for an irresistible package that attracts ever more investments away from the first world." "The relocation of manufacturing centers away from the United States had begun a corresponding shift in the center of gravity for R&D as it naturally gravitates toward new hubs of progress and production.' Id. at 41.).
Minow, Martha, Partners, Not Rivals: Privatization and the Public Good (Boston: Beacon, 2002) (From the bookjacket: "What happens when private companies, nonprofit agencies, and religious groups manage what government used to--in education, criminal justice, legal services, and welfare programs? As for-profit companies run schools, where will they make their profit margin? As religious groups provide job training and food stamps, will they respect public rules against discrimination and forcing people to pray?" "[Minow] acknowledges that private commercial interests are here to stay, and that religious providers have long played crucial roles in health care, social services, and schooling. New arrangements expanding these trends are not necessarily bad--market forces can be useful in improving public services, and the motivation and know-how of religious groups can help many of the most needy. Minow shows us how to guard against the dangers of privatization and preserve essential public values of due process, freedom form discrimination, and democratic participation.").
