How does China move forward?

The two most powerful nations on the planet are choosing their leaders. This week America re-elected President Obama, next week China will appoint its new steward. So can China continue its world beating growth and will America help or hamper its efforts to rebalance its economy? With the help of In the Balance's resident comedian, Colm O'Regan, we'll also be reflecting on the nature of leadership itself. What makes a great leader and how much influence do leaders, even of powerful nations, really have? Justin Rowlatt's guests are Professor Ann Lee,the author of "What the US can learn from China"; Ian Bremmer political risk analyst and president of Eurasia Group and Professor Kent Deng, reader in Economic History at the London School of Economics.
