The new leader, Li Keqiang, has certainly stated a worthwhile list of goals. And even if he does not succeed in getting rid of corruption and reducing pollution, if the growth goal is met there will be a nation that has a lot of folks with money to spend and the desire for a bit more personal freedom than that government could afford to give them. But I wish the people of China a period of peace and growth, so they can be our strong allies.
limiting car ownership can be done by enforcing rigid emission laws (that effectively raise the price). Then you have a double whammy. With only 1% of power being generated by nukes, that seems like another area of growth...
I would rather that the Chinese gov't be corrupt business men than power-mad, paranoid sociopaths. All things considered, the quality of Chinese governance and civil rights are pretty good by third-world standards.
