Lets party like its 1793
Figure 152. The Economist "Let’s party like it’s 1793" cover from May 4th – 10th 2013 depicting a painting of Xi Jinping dressed as emperor of China. The famous Qianlong Emperor was in power at that time. The title is likely a joke based on the more well known "Let’s party like it’s 1969" due to the legendary Woodstock festival. Party is also a play on words between the Communist Party and a night party. TODO why 1793 specifically shows another one from Sep 28, 2020 by French Magazine l’Obs entitled "L’Éternel Empire" (The Eternal Empire), using a similar picture to: Ciro Santilli as Qing Emperor. https://www.cafeyn.co/uk/publication/l-obs-hors-serie/21640297 Source.
