The single most powerful force operating in China today is that of "aspiration", says Evan Osnos, author of "Age of Ambition". Osnos says there is a growing tension between Communist Party rulers and ambitious Chinese citizens seeking to express themselves. Osnos says fears that the Chinese credit bubble will soon implode are not entirely without merit.

As for investment opportunities, Osnos says the best Chinese sectors to invest in right now ¿are healthcare and education.
