China Center Program Manager Shane Leary joins Miles Yu to discuss the root causes of China’s faltering economy. They then talk about a new agreement between Japan and the United States to develop hypersonic missile intercept systems. Finally, Miles examines the state of espionage practices between the US and China, with attention to China’s spy networks abroad, and the CCP’s latest efforts to revitalize the informant system of the cultural revolution at home.
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?
