An extract from Roland Boer’s book
Socialism with Chinese Characteristics
“What we are currently witnessing is a contest between two models of globalization – between “zero sum” and “win-win”. The former has been the dominant model ever since the era of European colonialism and the era of primitive capital accumulation through colonial plunder, slavery and domination of other parts of the world.
By contrast, the Chinese model of “win-win” arises from a very different historical experience … a long historical emphasis on stability and harmony … [in which] as the old Chinese proverb has it, things that oppose each other also complement one another.”Professor Roland Boer, School of Marxism, Dalian University of Technology, China
