Keep your eye on political trends in China (which it's possible to do on sites like globalpost). They're likely to be fueled by PR-savvy members of the Politburo, which "will have an unprecedented turnover of leadership" on its standing committee this year, with seven new members of the full nine. Wang Yang is expected to be one of them, and globalpost reports on how he recently placated angry peasants via PR-based intervention in their province. 

"Simply put," globalpost advises, "in Beijing, populism — better associated with US political grandstanding than Communist tactaics — is gaining popularity."
