This paper assesses China’s Potential as global Capitalism’s Systemic hegemony replacing America. It outlines the internal constraints that restrict China’s capacity to serve as a global systemic hegemon in the foreseeable future with special emphasis on the nature of the Chinese political system and its capacity both for sustaining the level of economic growth that has occurred since the launch of the ‘Four Modernizations’ programme in 1978 and for articulating policies for the emergence of China as a global hegemon.
