Keswick’s take on China

“The Chinese are very like Americans, or perhaps the way Americans were. They are natural capitalists and love being rich”

Tessa Keswick discusses her experiences of China with the Sunday Times. The 77 year-old wife of Jardine Matheson’s former taipan Henry Keswick added: “The Chinese look at the Americans and say ‘Why do you lecture us? You’ve got 2.3 million in prison – we don’t. You bomb the whole of the Middle East to bits’. They cannot understand how the Americans do that.”
