China’s relationship with the West has deteriorated rapidly and become toxic with China portrayed as a ’threat’ through Chinese competition in trade and technology, assertiveness abroad and growing military strength and bitter disagreements on ‘human rights’ issues. Why has this happened and is the perception of China as a threat justified?
There is also a quickly evolving change in the business landscape in China with the authorities toughening their regulatory control over Internet companies and emphasising ‘common prosperity’ rather than economic growth. What is happening and why is it happening?
These are issues I explore in my latest podcast series which coincides with the publication of my book: the China Conundrum. I pursue them with some of the country’s leading authorities on China.
