We know who Beijing’s new leaders are, but what are their policies? Fareed Zakaria speaks with writer Evan Osnos and Council on Foreign Relations fellow Elizabeth Economy on what the changes mean.
"These were not the people who had demonstrated a capacity and interest in making changes. But these are people who would satisfy the enormous range of factions and vested interests which now are vying for control," says Osnos.
"So if this new president and the new premier wanted to be able to get any traction at all, one theory is that they had to satisfy these many constituencies, give them the chance to have their share of power.
"In five years, there’s going to be a transition, not the president and not the premier, but the other members of the standing committee are going to change. And that may be an opportunity for some of these younger, some of these more reform-minded, figures to come to the top."
