The recently held Sixteenth Congress of the Chinese Communist Party and the Tenth National People's Congress signified a shift in power to the so-called "fourth generation" of Chinese leaders. With the declining trend of "strong-man politics,"Chinese politicians have been increasingly concerned about coalition-building, political compromise, and factional negotiation. The norm in Chinese elite politics has transformed from the zerosum games of the past to an emerging pattern of power-sharing among competing factions, regions, and social groups. Prominent leaders are willing to cooperate—not because they are motivated by democratic ideals, but because they recognize their own limitations and thus the need to cut a "new deal" between factions. The new leadership also signifies new policies. President Hu Jintao and Premier Wen Jiabao have outlined a new vision and a "New Deal" (xinzheng) for China's future. The "New Deal" is an economic and socio-political program that incorporates three interrelated aspects: first, more balanced regional economic development to reduce regional disparity, increase employment, and stimulate the domestic market; second, increased concern for social justice, fairness, and the need to create a social safety net; and third, greater political transparency and institutionalization.
