The global thinker state media isn't eager to recognize


Xinhua News Agency is happy that Chinese thinkers have made the Foreign Policy magazine, especially People's Bank of China governor Zhou Xiaochuan (周小川) and post-80s writer representative Han Han (韩寒). However, in a post deleted from Xinhua and People's Net, the cover of the special issue also showed another figure, the winner of this year's Nobel Peace Prize, Liu Xiaobo. The post is now gone from websites.

Chinese state media (China News Net via Sina) has picked out the others that are in the top 100:

No# 4 Zhou Xiaochuan, governor of People's Bank of China
Reason for selection: Controls the lifeblood of world economics, he is very important for the stability of world economy

No# 44 Zheng Bijian (郑必坚), a geostrategist
Reason for selection: Raised the "peaceful rise of China" concept

No# 60: Fan Gong (樊刚), Director, National Economic Research Institute
Reason: Clarifying to the world that China isn't just the factory of the world

No# 82: Hu Shuli (胡舒立), the editor-in-chief of New Century Weekly
Reason for selection: Expanding China's room for discussion

No# 86: Author Han Han (韩寒)
Reason for selection: One of the mot popular writers in the world, his blog is widely read in China
