Chinese Energy and Running Horses

NPR (National Public Radio):
On “ Fresh Air” China expert Orville Schell and host Terry Gross discussed President Obama’s visit to China. Mr. Schell explained Chinese energy after Mao in this way, and I am paraphrasing this: The Chinese put the bit in their mouth and ran with it.

This metaphor refers to a horse being harnessed and then running.
