Have you heard about China's President Xi Jinping's call for the "Chinese/China Dream" since he took office? How do you view it?

If the Chinese Dream is for the prosperity of China and the rest of the world, I am all for it.

I think that Xi was very wise not to attach the Chinese Dream to personal gain or success, but instead tied it to the nation's success. It would have been very easy and tempting to make it a normal political promise of personal prosperity and success for everyone.

"...Mr Xi has presented himself as a man more ready than his immediate predecessor, Hu Jintao, to inflict the pain that will come with real reform."

I think this is very good news for China as a whole, because global finance experts have been saying for a while that if China doesn't get real control over its economy it will be disastrous.

Prog, - you said:

"I think that Xi was very wise not to attach the Chinese Dream to personal gain or success, but instead tied it to the nation's success."

I think you made this comment from a very American point of view! Not 'wise' from a Chinese perspective - an expression, instead, of Chinese ideology since the Revolution.

I know it might be confusing that China refers to itself as 'Socialist' yet is often regarded as a huge Capitalist society by others.

However, Socialism is indeed behind Chinese politics, since Mao's communism was dismantled. All public statements on behalf of Chinese politicians therefore are in line with policy being aimed at the whole of society: to speak of individual gain or success would be anathema to the Chinese people, and would be completely contrary to Chinese politics.

Jes' sayin'....
