Tsai has given a clear indication that she clearly observes a difference between the Chinese entrepreneurs and other entrepreneurs who have been the part of political changes in the past. She suggests that even if democracy occurs in China, it will be because of entrepreneurs. By saying the same, she has placed the entrepreneurs ahead of the people. She clearly states that the entrepreneurs are the only people who have the power to create a change in the political system of China. By observing the entrepreneurs from other nations, she finds that it is the entrepreneurs who have made changes in the political system in the past. She further adds that the entrepreneurs of China cannot make remarkable changes in the nation because of the political climate of China (Przeworski, 1985). The details given by Tsai about the Chinese entrepreneurs are meticulous and its valuable to understand the complicated motives held by the entrepreneurs of China. Tsai has provided some of the details related to the role of the industrial workers, the poor people from rural areas and lower level government employees. In order to explain a clear view of the potential for change in China, the relationship between the poor working class, the entrepreneurs and CCP have been detailed. This is done to posit if there is any potential in these relations which can lead to a democratic change in China. She has tried to create a closer link between the entrepreneurs and the people working in rural areas. She has found that many entrepreneurs lack sense of identity. The reason for the same as suggested by author is that there is a huge variation between the views of the people. These views are explained with respect to the occupation of the people, the size of the businesses and the political network of the people. She has correctly examined that urban bias had a large impact on those entrepreneurs who had a rural background. She has emphasized on the fact that democracy can be achieved only if the entrepreneurs rise collectively without any difference of rich or poor. Only under such a condition democracy can be achieved.
Tsai points another reason because of which democracy cannot be achieved in China. She specifies that many entrepreneurs including many rich people have joined the communist partiers of China. This is being done by them for promoting their own interests by doing illegitimate things. This gives clear evidence that those entrepreneurs who are rich and powerful are least bothered about the democracy. It is a major question that how these entrepreneurs will be loyal to their parties in the coming time when there will be more reforms. The author has expressed her concern through the survey which cannot be possible to measure the accuracy with respect to loyalty.
Tsai missed to do the research on the role of communist party which could have given the idea related to the unfair competition among the employees.
