    The Tiger Leading the Dragon: How Taiwan Propelled China’s Economic Rise | Shelley Rigger

    The Tiger Leading the Dragon: How Taiwan Propelled China’s Economic Rise | Shelley Rigger

    How did the poor, isolated People’s Republic of China become the factory to the world? Shelley Rigger argues that the origins lie in Taiwan. In her new book, The Tiger Leading the Dragon, she describes the evolution of Taiwan’s influence from the period when Deng Xiaoping lifted Mao’s prohibitions on business in the late 1970s, allowing investors from Taiwan to collaborate with local officials in the PRC to transform mainland China into a manufacturing powerhouse. In the late 1980s, Taiwanese business owners lowered production costs by moving across the Strait, as China sought external investment to fuel its industrial rise. The book also explores Taiwan’s contributions to Chinese consumer behavior, philanthropy, religion, popular culture, and law.
    The National Committee on U.S.-China Relations held an event on October 26, 2021 with Shelley Rigger to discuss her new book.

    Engaging China: 50 Years of Sino-American Relations | Mary B. Bullock, David Lampton, Anne Thurston

    In recent years, the U.S.-China relationship has deteriorated rapidly. Engaging China: Fifty Years of Sino-American Relations brings together leading China specialists to reflect on relations between the two countries over the last half-century and consider what might lie ahead. The contributors – academics, nongovernmental organization leaders, and former diplomats and government officials – analyze the relationship from a wide range of perspectives: political, diplomatic, economic, social, cultural, commercial, educational, medical, and military. They explore not only the accomplishments and successes of engagement but also the mistakes and misunderstandings, acknowledging the distrust and frictions that surround the relationship today.

    People-to-People Exchange: Chinese Students in the U.S. | Qianfeng Lin, Yingyi Ma, Nicky Shuwo Zhou

    People-to-People Exchange: Chinese Students in the U.S. | Qianfeng Lin, Yingyi Ma, Nicky Shuwo Zhou

    American rhetoric about Chinese students in the United States is growing increasingly hostile, causing some to re-think their overseas study plans. Some claim that Chinese students pose a national security risk; while a few may, it is important to recognize that the vast majority of Chinese students, pursuing studies in a wide range of fields, add greatly to U.S. campuses, local economies, and the country as a whole. On September 20, 2021 the National Committee hosted a virtual program with current Harvard Law School and former Columbia School of Social Work student Qianfeng Lin; professor of sociology at Syracuse University, Yingyi Ma (herself a former graduate student in the United States); and former U.S. high school exchange and university student, Nicky Shuwo Zhou, as they discussed the experiences of Chinese students studying in the United States and their thoughts about such students in the future.tw

    Engagement Revisited: Progress Made and Lessons Learned from the U.S.-China Strategic and Economic Dialogue | Tiffany Barron, Rorry Daniels, Dan Jasper, Susan Thornton

    Engagement Revisited: Progress Made and Lessons Learned from the U.S.-China Strategic and Economic Dialogue | Tiffany Barron, Rorry Daniels, Dan Jasper, Susan Thornton

    U.S.-China relations are arguably at their worst point since diplomatic recognition in 1979, and may be getting worse. In this environment, American researchers organized by the National Committee on American Foreign Policy and the American Friends Service Committee undertook a systematic audit of the U.S.-China Strategic & Economic Dialogue (S&ED) to see what benefits were expected from bilateral diplomacy in the past and whether those benefits were realized.
    The report that emerged reveals that the United States benefited significantly from the S&ED process. Major areas of progress include stabilizing the international financial system after the global financial crisis, working through regulatory and technical issues culminating in the Paris Agreement, and jointly responding to the Ebola crisis in West Africa.
    On September 13, 2021 the National Committee on American Foreign Policy and the National Committee on U.S.-China Relations hosted a virtual program where Tiffany Barron, Rorry Daniels, Dan Jasper, and Susan Thornton discussed the successes and challenges of the S&ED process.

    China’s Leaders: From Mao to Now | David Shambaugh

    Since the establishment of the People’s Republic of China in 1949, five men have principally shaped the ruling Chinese Communist Party and the nation: Mao Zedong, Deng Xiaoping, Jiang Zemin, Hu Jintao, and Xi Jinping. During their decades of leadership, China, starting from a base of poverty and insularity, became a world power. In his latest book, China’s Leaders: From Mao to Now, David Shambaugh analyzes China’s contemporary history by studying the personal and professional experiences that shaped each leader.
    On September 9, 2021 the National Committee hosted a virtual program with David Shambaugh where he discussed his new book.

Interesting but bad audio

The speakers and topics of this podcast are great, and if you want to get into the weeds on wonky China issues its a good podcast to listen to. However, some of the audio is really bad. Bad enough that I've skipped whole episodes. NCUSCR, please work on this...

The Podcast to Listen on China

If you believe in a hopeful future, a constructive and leading role for the United States, if you want US policy toward China to be fact based and optimistic you should pay attention to this podcast. Every time I am disappointed or discouraged about where things are headed for the most important bilateral relationship in the world, I come here to learn and to regain hope. Thank you!
