Chinese Economy

Today we continue our thread on geopolitics with part one of a two-part interview with Ukraine-based defense expert Reuben Johnson (thebulwark.com). He examines the precarious position Taiwan finds itself with China potentially emboldened to take over the small island country. He also looks at the sudden cancellation of Hong Kong passports, the history of Hong Kong along with China prematurely breaking the 1997 agreement, and finally China's social credit score system – and how we're seeing a similar version of it pop up here in the United States.

Join us tomorrow for part two of the conversation with Reuben Johnson where he and John discuss several cultural issues in the U.S.
