Today we welcome back several-time guest and friend of the show, Daniel Wagner. As you may know, Daniel and I have been doing a series on Covid19. This time however, we talk China and specifically, the focus of Daniel’s latest book The Chinese Vortex – The Belt and Road Initiative and Its Impact on the World. As you will hear the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) is a set of large infrastructure projects that China has been using to extend its influence on the world. It is an extension of China’s tremendous and growing power.

As you will also hear all is not as it seems with the BRI, nor is all as it was intended. In fact, the BRI is an insightful prism through which to understand not only China’s place in the world, how it views the world, but also its weaknesses. We cover a lot in this episode, including:

  • The origins of the BRI and its objectives;
  • So-called “debt trap diplomacy”;
  • How BRI projects are received;
  • China’s export of authoritarianism;
  • China, the BRI and Covid19;
  • How China views the upcoming US elections;
  • Much more!
