Miles Yu and Wilson Shirley discuss what to make of the People’s Republic of China’s reaction to Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen’s visit to the United States, the folly of French President Emmanuel Macron’s “strategic autonomy,” and what an ongoing banking crisis in rural China says about the health of the country’s financial sector.
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?
China Insider is a weekly podcast project from Hudson Institute's China Center, hosted by Miles Yu and Wilson Shirley, who provide weekly news that mainstream American outlets often miss, as well as in-depth commentary and analysis on the China challenge and the free world’s future.
