In October 2017, China’s 19th Party Congress adopted the ‘Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era’ – giving the Chinese leader a status unmatched except by Mao Zedong and Deng Xiaoping.
George Magnus, author of the new book, ‘Red Flags: Why Xi’s China is in Jeopardy’, joined the Asia House Bagri Foundation Literature Festival to discuss the implications of this “new era” for China. He was in conversation with Martin Jacques, author of the global bestseller ‘When China Rules the World: The Rise of the Middle Kingdom and the End of the Western World,’ and Dr Yu Jie, Head of China Foresight at LSE.
This event took place on as part of the Asia House Bagri Foundation Literature Festival 2018.
Speakers include George Magnus (former Chief Economist and Senior Economic Adviser of UBS), Dr Yu Jie (Head of China Foresight at LSE IDEAS), Linda Yueh (Fellow in Economics at St Edmund Hall, Oxford), and Martin Jacques.
