Obama Reading Recommendations for China

I Love DollarsIt seems as if everyone has reading recommendations for President Obama and earlier this week Pankaj Mishra weighed in on the subject at The China Beat.

One of Mishra’s recommendations was I Love Dollars: And Other Stories of China by Zhu Wen.

Here’s what Mishra wrote:
