Shane Leary joins Miles Yu to discuss the major takeaways from Biden’s meeting with Xi Jinping on the sidelines of Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit. They then turn to Xi’s efforts to curry favor with US-business executives, and whether this could stem the tide of decoupling. Finally, they discuss the curious republishing of a 1972 Foreign Affairs article by Barbara Tuchman entitled, “If Mao Had Come to Washington,” and what this reveals about enduring misconceptions of China among the US foreign policy elite.
