A Guerrilla Guide to Doing Business in China is aimed not at multi-nationals but small entrepreneurs. It focusses on opportunities suitable for individuals that do not need large amounts of financial investment.
The general perception is that China has now begun a long-term economic slowdown.

Syrizaâ€™s victory in the Greek general election in January 2015 is a truly historic and profound event â€“ the first government of the radical left in Europe since World War Two. In this short ebook, extracted from the updated edition of The Global Minotaur, Yanis Varoufakis, the new finance minister of Greece and a Syriza MP, outlines his economic and political thinking and how he believes Europe can move beyond cuts and austerity.
