It is with a certain comic irony that the annual global getaway of the world’s movers and shakers has chosen Xi Jinping as the herald of global capitalism. “Help me, Xi Jinping, you’re my only hope.”

On Tuesday, the leader of the — reminder — Communist Party of China will address the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. It is the first time a Chinese president ever attended the forum. The forum leaders have seemingly made him the poster boy for globalization, based on the number of headlines regarding his historic attendance.

Globalization has treated China well. Gone are the days of the Happy Meal toy making, dollar-a-day economy. China, if you look mainly at Shanghai, Beijing and Guangzhou, is rich! They’re keeping London and New York real estate afloat. And the country is home to more new billionaires than anywhere else.
