Xi Jinping, China's Leadership and Chinese Issues

Late next week my AP Comparative students will start (starting and ending countries in AP Comp is certainly quick!) looking at China.  First off Xi Jinping was just given the ceremonial position of president to add to his other position as General Secretary of the Communist party.  The video on the bottom talks about (the then looming) appointment as well as the issues facing China.  The video on top is a good discussion on the top leadership.

This article from today's (3/15) NYTimes talks about China's new premier Li Keiqiang and a few of China's glaring problems such as its property market which is featured in this week's 60 Minutes below.
