    Money Talks: Xinomics

    Money Talks: Xinomics

    A new economic era is dawning in China—a potent mix of autocracy, technology and dynamism. Our Asia economics editor Simon Rabinovitch and host Simon Long speak to local business owners and economists about this evolution of state capitalism. Could a new sort of central planning help Chinese technology dominate the world stage? And how should the West respond?

    The persecution of a people: China’s repression of the Uyghurs

    The persecution of a people: China’s repression of the Uyghurs

    Reporting by The Economist reveals deepening efforts by Chinese authorities not just to imprison the Muslim-minority people but also to reduce their number, to wipe out their culture and to hound them wherever in the world they may go. Yet a visit to Yunnan province reveals that the party’s hostility to ethnic minorities is not absolute.

    Checks and Balance: Joe’s job

    Checks and Balance: Joe’s job

    No candidate challenging a sitting president has had a poll lead bigger than Joe Biden’s this close to election day. His allure owes a lot to who he is not. The Democrats coalesced around the former Vice President only when the more radical Bernie Sanders threatened to nab the nomination. Who is Joe Biden and what does he want?
     
    The Economist’s US business editor Vijay Vaitheeswaran explains why Wall St is coming round to Biden and we look back at his foreign policy record and role in the Iraq war. Also, Biden’s former deputy chief of staff Scott Mulhauser tells us what makes him tick.


    John Prideaux, The Economist's US editor, hosts with New York bureau chief Charlotte Howard, and Jon Fasman, Washington correspondent.

A private tutor to the rich and anxious reveals the costs—to students and tutors—of heightened academic pressure. And a new book yields a cat’s-eye view of 18th-century London.

Good mix of politics, economy and science

Great to take a step back from daily news noise. Great interviews. Really backed up facts and figures. A must

Anvil_7 ,

Can you just let the gusts finish!

As an interviewer, can the host (please!!) let her guests finish their answers first?!
It’s rude, especially in the latest episode.
