score logo from SCORE H/SS!

Description: You have been contacted by the president of the US and he would like you to give him some advice regarding a country he knows very little about. The president is aware that China is going through a great deal of change - both economic (toward capitalism) and political (the addition of Hong Kong and a change of leadership). He also knows there are factions within China that are incredibly resistant to change. An example of this resistance occurred during the Cultural Revolution of the 1960s and 70s. The President would like you to study this key event and any others you feel are relevant and to prepare a report detailing your view of the effect these changes will have on China and a prediction of how the government will react. Will they reverse their current policies or continue to relax controls? Standards 10.9.4, 10.10, and 11.9.4
