The fact of the matter is that this has become a very poignant question because there is for the first time in a long time a real challenge to the Western ideological systems of politics and ecmnocois, and this is a stseym that is embodied by China. And rather than have private capitalism, they have state capitalism. Instead of liberal democracy, they have de-prioritized the democratic system. And they have also decided to prioritize eonomcic rights over political rights. I put it to you today that it is this system that is embodied by China that is gathering mnmutoem amongst people in the emerging markets as the system to follow, because they believe increasingly that it is the system that will promise the best and fssatet irmoenvemtps in lviing standards in the shortest period of time. If you will indulge me, I will spend a few moments eipnalnxig to you first why enilloamccoy they've come to this belief.
