China Center Program Manager Shane Leary joins Miles Yu to discuss the new efforts from China’s National Development and Reform Commission to stimulate China’s nonstate economic center as their economy falters. They then turn to a discussion of Henry Kissinger’s peculiar visit with Xi Jinping, which Miles frames as the CCP practicing elder abuse. Finally, they address the recent Russian missile strike, which accidentally damaged the PRC consulate in Odesa, and what the reaction has been inside China.
On multiple fronts—from ideology to the economy, to the military, to technology—the Chinese Communist Party presents the United States and its allies and partners with their most serious threat since the Cold War—maybe since World War II. What does the emerging consensus about the China challenge get right, and what is it missing? And what will it take to compete to win?
