I’m heading to Hong Kong for four days of hi-jinks.  In the meantime, I’ll take the opportunity to resurrect a post I wrote that mentions Hong Kong as an example of how a colonial power created a model for a city that was exported to the mainland and catalyzed the development of China.  Can it be done somewhere else?  I’ll try to find out.
