December has been a bad month for the People’s Republic’s global ambitions. Miles Yu and Wilson Shirley discuss Japan’s historic defense buildup and what it means for the global balance of power, China’s clashes with India along the Line of Actual Control, and how Xi Jinping’s recent visit to Saudi Arabia undermined his long-term strategy with Iran.
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.
