CHINA UNSCRIPTED

151 The Olympics Is Xi’s Coronation Ceremony

The Olympics is not only a coup for the Chinese Communist Party in terms of showing its influence on the international stage, but has practically become the coronation ceremony for Chinese leader Xi Jinping. At a Party meeting in November, Xi's next term will officially be decided, but how well the Olympics goes may herald his rise or demise. In this episode of China Unscripted, we discuss China's economy, China's planned invasion of Taiwan, and the US-China economic relationship. Joining us in this episode is Jack Posobiec, a former Naval intelligence officer who lived in China, and the host of the podcast Human Events Daily.
