The global thinker state media isn’t eager to recognize


Xinhua News Agency is happy that Chinese thinkers have made the Foreign Policy magazine, especially People’s Bank of China governor Zhou Xiaochuan (周小川) and post-80s writer representative Han Han (韩寒). However, in a post deleted from Xinhua and People’s Net, the cover of the special issue also showed another figure, the winner of this year’s Nobel Peace Prize, Liu Xiaobo. The post is now gone from websites.

No# 82: Hu Shuli (胡舒立), the editor-in-chief of New Century Weekly

Reason for selection: Expanding China’s room for discussion
