In a well-received speech at Davos in
 January, Chinese President Xi Jinping 
defended international
 economic integration, 
 leading observers to wonder
 if China had assumed a globalization
 leadership role. Former U.S. Deputy 
Assistant Secretary of State Susan Shirk,
 however, says that the real picture
 is more complicated: “The reality 
 is that China has taken a U-turn back
 from decades of reform and opening to
 reform going nowhere and the economy 
becoming more closed.”
