Today, we talk China and how it is attempting to create a world in its own image. My guest is Daniel Wagner, someone we have had on the show quite regularly. Daniel is an author, speaker and expert on country risk – he is the founder and CEO of his firm Country Risk Solutions.

Daniel is also a prolific writer and his latest book – China Vision: China’s Crusade to Create a World in its Own Image is out now and it brings a much-needed, more nuanced look at China and its place in the world. In the book and in this episode, Daniel explains how China is on the precipice of global supremacy, why the Chinese government acts the way it does, and what that means for the world.

We get into all that and more. Daniel gives us an overview of:

  • Where its global vision comes from;
  • China’s relationship with the West and the US specifically.
  • China’s “Belt and Road Initiative” and the neo-colonial bent of that;
  • China’s very different approach to the rule of law;
  • Its ambitious and highly successful project to control the internet – and some of the dark implications of that;
  • Its “Social Credit System” – a real-life version of Black Mirror;
  • Prospects for violent conflict between China and the West;
  • Cyber security;
  • The internal pressures China faces;
  • Much more

Today, I get to share a conversation with one of my favourite people – ultra endurance athlete, adventurer, speaker, coach and author Luke Tyburski. This is Luke’s second appearance on All Things Risk. If you listened way back to episode 9, you know that Like completed a crazy adventure called the Ultimate Triathlon. This involved swimming across the Strait of Gibraltar, cycling along the coast of Spain, and running along southern France into Monaco – 2,000+ km over 12 days. The Ultimate Triathlon is now the subject of an award-winning documentary.

However, there is a deeper, more interesting, raw and inspirational side to Luke. For years, Luke concealed a diagnosis of clinical depression – and it is only very recently that he shared how he persevered through some of the darkest moments in his life in his new book Chasing Extreme. The message of Chasing Extreme and that Luke brings is particularly important to us men – we don’t typically acknowledge our feelings – and the longer that goes on, the more we suffer – the outcomes of that are never positive. Luke is a great role model to inspire us to talk about these things more openly (as I do at a point in the conversation). In doing so, I think we all benefit.

We get into all of that, as well as the importance or purpose in facing uncertainty and facing challenges, Like’s future challenges, and loads more.
