A new Van Zanten comic for the economist magazine ESB, a theme issue about China’s economic power. My translation: 1) VZ: ‘China is going to be the world’s largest economy. I prepare myself.’ On the sign: ‘China: Age-old economic philosophies’ 2) Chinese philosopher: ‘Richness is like dung: it has to be spread out to be useful.’ VZ: ‘Refreshing!’ 3) Chinese philosopher: ‘The emperor is rich, but he cannot buy another year.’ 4) VZ: ‘My, my, that’s something you don’t read in ESB every month.’

Een Van Zanten strip voor het economische tijdschrift ESB, over China’s economische macht.
