A Moment of Global Adjustment: China’s Ambitions in the Wake of Covid-19

In this episode of Building the Future, Dan Runde is joined once again by Dr. Jonathan Ward, author of China’s Vision for the World, to discuss how China’s relationship with the rest of the world has changed in the last 18 months. This time around, the pair analyze the growing recognition of China’s ambitions in U.S. society and foreign policy, as well as China’s increasing willingness to push regional boundaries and embrace the use of force, whether on the border with India, in Hong Kong, or elsewhere. Dr. Ward explains that, in order to counter China going forward, the United States will need to create a coalition of fellow democracies and private sector actors capable of containing the country’s growing economic and industrial power.
