Forbes looks into the possible reasons for the shakeup at Caijing Magazine:
Has the propaganda ministry applied pressure to the magazine’s owners? Have long-running internal financial squabbles come to a head? Is the magazine’s indomitable editor, Hu Shuli, maneuvering to ensure she can continue pushing the boundaries of press freedom, either at Caijing or at a new publication?
Any one of these three scenarios is plausible, and they are not mutually exclusive.
