I found his swimming from Taiwan to China hard to believe until i checked in Wikipedia that he actually swam from Taiwan-administered Kinmen which is just off the mainland. Amazing feat nonetheless.

Dani -

This is great news - finally a Chinese to advise the IBRD!

Adrian

Dani - are you too optimistic? Consider for instance of his explanation of 'the China miracle' (2003):

“The adoption of the leap-forward strategy before the reform caused China's industrial structure to deviate from the optimum pattern determined by the country's comparative advantage ... This distorted industrial structure ran contrary to the general laws of economic development, and has led to negative economic growth on several occasions. Since the 1978 reform, however, the bias against labour-intensive industries has been gradually alleviated and the distortion in industrial structure has been gradually corrected”

Or take the quote from The Economist's profile.

Is his view not quite different from yours?

C. Ryan

To respond to Adrian's concerns from The China Miracle, I think the Economist said it best in the review: "So his intellectual portfolio is perfectly hedged." Given the rest of his background, he seems like a natural consensus builder?

Thomas

I though honest and trust are those very essential, and necessary elements for any economist. Unfortunately Mr. Lin appointment to World Bank is a clear and very obvious exception.
Can’t be please, can we?

Adam Jackson

Adrian - I don't think it is. Subsidising industries that run totally against a country's static CA only works with the best of governments and situations.

But his view that "as an economy develops, the state should coax firms into more sophisticated industries. This prodding may be needed for several reasons. To cite one: firms may not know which industries are viable, and which are not. So the government should subsidise pioneers who break a path for others" lies very close to Dani's thinking as far as I can see.

Tom

Justin Lin, as a former officer in the same army that lost the Chinese Civil War, was following an illustrious tradition.

Indeed, the Communists would have had a much harder time winning the war if they hadn't been able to persuade so many Nationalist generals to switch over to the winning side.

Inspiring. The other challenge for purifying the mind is to live in a 10 sq m hut [10'x10' or 100 sq ft]. Then all 100 items in there would make you want to pare down even further. It seems hard to imagine, but if we could, we can see how peaceful it would be compared to what we normally do - hmmm ??? Why do we do this, anyway?!?

Thanks for bringing us to a modern day Walden Pond.
