    China has enjoyed a pretty awesome ride over the past 2 decades, but what lurks in the not too distant future (little economic growth) is beginning to rear it's ugly head.

    "Wave of Unrest Rocks China"

    Wave of Unrest Rocks China - WSJ.com

    "BEIJING—A wave of violent unrest in urban areas of China over the past three weeks is testing the Communist Party's efforts to maintain control over an increasingly complex and fractious society, forcing it to repeatedly deploy its massive security forces to contain public anger over economic and political grievances.

    The simultaneous challenge to social order in several cities from the industrial north to the export-oriented south represents a new threat for China's leaders in the politically sensitive run-up to a once-a-decade leadership change next year, even though for now the violence doesn't appear to be coordinated."
