Show Notes

This week we bring you Part 2 of our 3 part Special Series on democracy vs. authoritarianism. In this second part, we analyze the Chinese model for development; its successes as well as its controversies. We also discuss the consolidation of power under Xi Jinping in the past years and how that may compare to the centralized/decentralized political system in the U.S. We are joined again by Mark Johnson, who is looking to gain another honorary point in "who said it?".  We'll be back for part 3 next month!
