“The root cause of Hong Kong’s discontent, and what can be done”

Zhongnanhai Blog has a lengthy post about Hong Kong politics and China- I’ll only post the first paragraph, and say that the rest might be worth reading in its entirety:

It’s been very interesting watching the Hong Kong Chief Executive “election” unfold this year, the first one I’ve witnessed as a Hong Kong resident. Hong Kong has long been a bastion of free market capitalism, with its free capital flows, staunchly pro-business government and laissez-faire approach to the economy. But the exercise of democracy and campaigning are still relatively new here, and watching the territory grapple with multiple issues and an uncertain future has been a fascinating experience.
