Jasper Becker is a frequent speaker on Chinese affairs and runs the Legend Strategic Consultancy Ltd. He has been writing about Asia for 30 years and spent 18 years reporting from Beijing and has also reported from Brussels, Geneva, Frankfurt and is the author of nine books on Asia. He recently completed a book provisionally titled 'Why we won the Cold War - and why so many western intellectuals are still disappointed.' It tells the story of how a widely derided theory by the Austrian economist Ludwig von Mises about the fatal flaw on socialist theory - on the socialist calculation problem which was written just after Lenin took power, led to the downfall of planned economies across the world.
