Communists and cyber war – A View From the East

For those of you that don’t follow A View From the East, we have a few more posts today.

First is a review on Frank Dikotter’s excellent book on the effects of Chairman Mao‘s Great Leap Forward, and a question as to why people still think it OK to be a fan of communism.

Second, a report from Bloomberg on China’s latest computer hacking attempts on Western companies, which one commentator says “may be the biggest transfer of wealth in a short period of time that the world has ever seen”. Worrying indeed.
