ChinaTalk: How Huarong Explains China's Creaky Financial System

What is Huarong and why do its struggles explain the central contradictions of China's financial system?

To discuss, Logan Wright of Rhodium joins the show. In the first ten minutes, Logan catches us up on the news of the week. Then in the following hour, I rerun an episode we recorded together in late 2018 discussing his report Credit and Credibility, which explains why the big one hasn't hit yet.

ChinaTalk: 'Invisible China': How the Urban-Rural Divide Threatens China’s Ris‪e‬

Scott Rozelle (legend, Stanford professor, co-director of the Stanford Center on China's Economy and Institutions) joins ChinaTalk to discuss his recent book, "Invisible China: How the Urban-Rural Divide Threatens China’s Rise," co-authored with Natalie Hell. We discuss how China’s 900 million-strong low-income population will decide China’s future development path. Is China is the next Mexico? Why is it easy to solve poverty but not low income? Why don’t local governments spend enough on rural education and health?

ChinaTalk: U.S.-China Ideological Competitio‪n‬

Are the U.S. and China in ideological competition? How does one go about answering that question? Dan Tobin of the U.S. Intelligence Community's National Intelligence University and Ryan Manuel of Official China have a dangerous amount of fun debating guiding ideologies and what they mean for geopolitics.
