Leading China analyst to take readers' questions

Minxin Pei, a leading China analyst and the Tom and Margot Pritzker '72 professor of government at Claremont McKenna College, is taking questions from GPS readers. Please leave your questions in the comment section below.

    What is the nature of the relationship between China and Russia? Does each country's military cooperate closely with the other?

      As an International Relations student, I must say that each country is the best customer for each one.

        I don't think the University of Phoenix is teaching you anything.

    When are we going to stop spending beyond our means ? When are we going to stop borrowing money from China ? Why does China have a huge surplus of $$ and we can not even compete in garlic and salmon while we have plenty of land and plenty of salmon ? How long will the dollar remain the reserve currency while we are printing it by the ton ?

    How can I ask questions concerning secret security issues? No one will discuss those. This is a waste of time.

    What does President Xi think about Deng Xiaoping's slogan: "to get rich is glorious?" Following this mindset, China sees rampant corruption, greed and fraud. The recent food scandals are good examples for how reckless and greedy business people dupe customers, just for the sake of living a good life and being admired by their peers!

      What does President Xi intend to do with North Korea? No doubt President Obama would speak to Xi about the alleged Chinese cyber attacks on the US. Would Obama speak to Xi about China's territorial disputes in the Region?

    Is it possible for China to slowly deflate the real estate bubble and continue to steadily grow GDP? How do you analyze China's economic output if, based on wide speculation, that the economic numbers are not real? If the numbers are fake, shouldn't it be spotted by other countries economic indicators?

    Do you expect household consumption in China to be strong enough for the country to rebalance from its old investment/export driven model?
