The economic and geopolitical implications of China's rise have been the subject of vast commentary. However, the institutional implications of China's transformative development under state capitalism have not been examined extensively and comprehensively. Regulating the Visible Hand? The Institutional Implications of Chinese State Capitalism examines the domestic and global consequences of Chinese state capitalism, focusing on the impact of state-owned enterprises on regulation and policy, while placing China's variety of state capitalism in comparative perspective. It first examines the domestic governance of Chinese state capitalism, looking at institutional design and regulatory policy in areas ranging from the environment and antitrust to corporate law and taxation. It then analyses the global consequences for the regulation of trade, investment and finance. Contributors address such questions as: What are the implications of state capitalism for China's domestic institutional trajectory? What are the global implications of Chinese state capitalism? What can be learned from a comparative analysis of state capitalism?

In the last 30 years, China’s record economic growth lifted half a billion people out of poverty, with rapid urbanization providing abundant labor, cheap land, and good infrastructure. While China has avoided some of the common ills of urbanization, strains are showing as inefficient land development leads to urban sprawl and ghost towns, pollution threatens people’s health, and farmland and water resources are becoming scarce. With China’s urban population projected to rise to about one billion – or close to 70 percent of the country’s population – by 2030, China’s leaders are seeking a more coordinated urbanization process. Urban China is a joint research report by a team from the World Bank and the Development Research Center of China’s State Council which was established to address the challenges and opportunities of urbanization in China and to help China forge a new model of urbanization. The report takes as its point of departure the conviction that China's urbanization can become more efficient, inclusive, and sustainable. However, it stresses that achieving this vision will require strong support from both government and the markets for policy reforms in a number of area. The report proposes six main areas for reform: first, amending land management institutions to foster more efficient land use, denser cities, modernized agriculture, and more equitable wealth distribution; second, adjusting the hukou household registration system to increase labor mobility and provide urban migrant workers equal access to a common standard of public services; third, placing urban finances on a more sustainable footing while fostering financial discipline among local governments; fourth, improving urban planning to enhance connectivity and encourage scale and agglomeration economies; fifth, reducing environmental pressures through more efficient resource management; and sixth, improving governance at the local level.

Tapestry: A Medieval Tale of Curses, Crowns, and Courage introduces a wonderful world of dragons, knights, and powerful wizards. They wind their way through a maze of lies, jealousy, and madness in search of truth, justice, and honor. As imagined by author Jerry Smith, this world comes alive through a poetic narrative that follows the story of a gentle princess and her reluctant hero. Fortified with courage and stealth, they find the strength and perseverance to overcome the death, darkness, and destruction unleashed upon their land by an evil, power-hungry mage and a scheming sorceress. Written in the style of the great Greek and Roman poets, Tapestry presents rich imagery and eloquent rhyming couplets portraying the adversity encountered by its characters. It follows them as they struggleevil against good, death against life, and destruction against rebirth. Feudal lords, evil enemies, and noble knights emerge and entwine into colorful strands, creating this carefully woven tale as a vibrant tapestry filled with hope and promise for an age consumed by darkness and despair. Tapestry: A Medieval Tale of Curses, Crowns, and Courage brings the poetic narrative to a story of good versus evil in a world brimming with justice, honor, mystery, and magic.

Two college-goers and two teens plan a trek along a sanctuary. On way to the trek, the leader witnesses goons snatching a money bag from an old man. He challenges the goons and is abducted. He runs away from the captivity. Goons learn about their trekking plan, separate them and chase them individually into the forest. While the actions happen on earth, all are sucked into a new world in which they can fly but feel no hunger, thirst or sleep. This world's inhabitants join the two groups, and it leads to a fight to the finish. In yet another realm, the goings-on appear as videos, and solutions are offered through rhymes and riddles. The teens feel, it is an illusion that has occurred due to mix-up of a video game with magic. A mix-up it is, and the cause is revealed at the end. But that leads to more questions.

In 2020 angels of a high order started incarnating on Earth as humans. In early 2020 guards at Teotihuacan, an archeological site in Mexico, find eight fat handwritten notebooks on a ledge at the Palace of the Jaguars. They purport to be the journal, and maybe last testament, of an American, age 69, hiding out in the high desert of New Mexico and on the run from intelligence agencies. He sums up his life spent with a most unusual colleague named Blaise. The journal entries span seven months in 2019 then end as 2020 begins, but they cover the history of the Earth. Offered in a matter-of-fact manner, the writers revelations grow increasingly alarming and hard to credit. Wormholes on the Earth. Pleiadian influence in human evolution. Hyperdimensional Light grids. Clairvoyant scientists. Shapeshifting Ascended Masters. Accounts of planetwide psychic access. An apparitional theater of mythic figures. Angels 60 billion years old on the verge of human incarnation. Yet the journals, written with warmth, fondness, and amusement, read like the memoir of truly one mans best friend, Blaiseyet this Blaise is too big, too old, too vast to be a human. What then? And who wrote the journals? He seems untraceable. In 2023 the notebooks passed to Dartmouth College professor Frederick Graham Atkinson, Ph.D., who, starting in 2025, prepared them for publication, adding helpful editorial notes. The journals, though never intended for publication by their author and its a miracle they survived the desert and years in a dusty unused office, Dr. Atkinson states, offer an unusual, often inspiring, and mostly astonishing report of the inner affairs of planet, culture, myth, humanity, the spiritual world, and where its all heading.
