State Capitalism: Pros and Cons

The Economist has an interesting article about State Capitalism and what it can achieve…or destroy. I particularly liked this line though:

The obsession with national champions can be dangerous: mating two dinosaurs seldom produces a gazelle. But champions have their uses. They can boost national pride, they can ensure that local companies can compete for the best and the brightest with foreign multinationals and they can help emerging countries to establish global standards rather than playing by other people’s rules. The Chinese are determined to do this with the growing market for the “internet of things”.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
